    My boss gave me an old computer to give to my daughter. I put Fedora 8 on it and want to know if there is a way to lock down firefox so that it can only go to websites that I specify. Any websites out there for configuring and securing firefox for this purpose?

    I would also look into getting an OpenDNS account. You can setup all kinds of blocking, Blacklists and Whitelists with that. It is not user specific though.
