Good guestion you ask, one I never considered. But then I've had little problems with firefox and no one but me currently uses this machine. thank the Goddess for that!!
But the the mozilla article, Configurable Security Policies descibes I believe what you are asking about.
I've never used this but I found it because of your question. If you have problems understanding how to use this article, post here or at the firedox forums.
I also found
that said you may wish to consider downloading Policy Manager. I haven't tryed it but I believe I'm gonna give it a try.
Ps I tried it and it's doesn't work with anything but older versions of firefox, sorry on that one!

I agree it should be simpler, but editing HOST files or Security Policies is not that hard, now is it? Well maybe a little bit but you have to understand Firefox is open Source code. the they you mention are a team of programmers writing this stuff for free (free as far as I know). They think like programmers and firefox is a powerful tool if you learn how to use it properly. Of course, they want Firefox to be easy for anyone to use and as such I think they have did a great job. It perhaps needs more work and someone needs to create a Security Policy extension. Programming projects go on forever, at least mine do. There are always more features to add and bugs to correct and the worst of all maybe i'd better rethink something. Feel free to join, see http://www.mozilla.org/developer/.
why do they make it so dificult to do something that is so simple on IE!!
If I stumble across anything better I'll let ya know.
