Using Firefox 20.0.0.11

I want every users logging on a particular workstation to have the same startup homepage when they open firefox for the first time. I don't care if they change it afterward...

I tried adding pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://www.yahoo.com/"); to all.js and it didn't work.

I think you may want to look at this knowledge base article and this one.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

From what I understand, it is not something easy to do at all... Isn't there a simple way to do this without spending 2 days understanding a procedure ?

Thx

Put a file user.js with the prefs in the default template folder: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile\

That is the only way to initialize a profile. Unfortunately that prevents users from changing those via Tools > Options because that file is read every time Firefox is started. So you or the user has to remove that file after the first start to make permanent changes possible.
