I really need to maintain IETab on 75 users (x2, local and Citrix, so 150 IETab configurations) from a central place. I want to upload 1 (one) single file to any webserver, let's say http://company.com/ietab-site-filter.txt, based on that file the IETab needs to automaticlly open the websites in that file with IETab.

I really need this before I can publish Firefox in our company. When a website is not working, I've got to configure all users / browsers at once. So the users only need to close/reopen there browser, and a website is automatically opened via IETab. This requires only 1 user who finds a website that's not working to configure the whole company.

Try this...
http://forum.moztw.org/files/ietab_filt ... .1_100.xpi

First, extract the .xpi file, edit the following file:
ietab_filterlist_updater.xpi\defaults\preferences\ietabfupdater.js

Original code:
Code: Select all
pref("ietab.filterlist.updater.enabled", true);
pref("ietab.filterlist.updater.site", "");

Change it to...
Code: Select all
pref("ietab.filterlist.updater.enabled", true);
pref("ietab.filterlist.updater.site", "http://company.com/ietab-filterlist.txt");

P.S. This case, I assume that your filter file on http://company.com/ietab-filterlist.txt
And then, use zip format repack ietab_filterlist_updater.xpi

Second, write the ietab-filterlist.txt
For example:
Code: Select all
# default rules
/^file:\/\/\/.*\.(mht|mhtml)$/
http://*update.microsoft.com/
http://www.windowsupdate.com/

# user reported rules
http://*.live.com/
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/cht/

It must be a plain text file, one rule per line, any lines starts with # will be ignored (comment line).
Save the file and upload it to your server e.g. http://company.com/ietab-filterlist.txt

Third, share ietab_filterlist_updater.xpi and install it on all PC in your company.
P.S. This extension supports Firefox 1.5~3.0a1

Additionally, you can modify following file to support the extension's Automatic Update.

Code: Select all
<em:updateURL>http://company.com/update.rdf</em:updateURL>
