I have my 3 kids and wife using Firebird with Adblock. So far no complaints. since we're all networked together, is the a way to link .vs import a filter list?

Interesting request. You'd want that linked-file to be updated by anyone using it, right?
.
I've been playing with the idea for an extension to synchronize any settings-file (bookmarks, prefs.js.. etc.) with a master, and it sounds like this would fit right in: synchronizing individual prefs.
.
In the interest of simplicity, once I've coded it, I'll probably roll the code into Adblock so users won't need to install both.
.
But, initially, it would be a separate extension.

In my case, I have 4 systems mapped to a shared directory on my PC which would hold the "master" filter list.

I also see the potential to create a master filter list hosted on a remote server linked via http.

I see a lot of posts for suggestions on creating a filter list, perhaps a basic master could be hosted by yourself and a few mirror sites. I have some server space and some bandwidth I would be willing to allocate.

Hooking into pc-sharing isn't cross-platform, but the same synchronicity is easily accomplished with ftp .
.
I'd also like to land "default listings" in the xpi, so users of larger installations can roll their own builds with certain filters "pre-installed". A single, customized build could then be centrally deployed.

This is very interesting, rue. It would be quite helpful, e.g., when rebooting between OS X and OS 9, since WaMCom in 9 and mozilla 1.5 in X won't share a profile. Frustrating non-sync issues include bookmarks, prefs, passwords, history, form contents, and cookies. Though it might be better NOT to sync some prefs such as font sizes, which have cross-platform differences.
