The call center I work for has it's employees do all of their work using cloud based platforms. The only application they use is a browser. We currently use Firefox. As it is now, each employee sets up bookmarks and browser settings to fit their specific job requirement, but they frequently move seats.

I'd like to have local accounts for Firefox (or any other browser that may support this) which store the browser profile, and can be synced with login credentials.

I could set all of the workstations up on a domain and use folder redirection or roaming profiles to achieve this, but that idea has been turned down by management for various reasons.

Is there any way to achieve this, or something similar?

Roaming profiles would probably be the easiest, but I'm not a fan.  Do the users have a personal network drive, i.e. Home Drive?  If so, you may be able to move the profile there.


Another option, might be Chrome and let Google store their info.
