Now this creates another problem. I manually tested this, and it works 
ok. But when I try to work with /etc/skel, I have some unexpected 

Say I put prefs.js in /etc/skel/.mozilla/firefox/yahonga.default

When I create my user, his ~/.mozilla now has two prefs.js files.

1) in /etc/skel/.mozilla/firefox/yahonga.default

2) in /etc/skel/.mozilla/firefox/yatahongaga.default

Now where does this catwalksonthekeyboard.default directory come from? 
What is it possibly good for? And, more interestingly, how can I put my 
user preferences under /etc/skel/.mozilla so Firefox actually finds them 
without me having to jump through burning loops first?
