I have been trying to figure this out, and keep coming up blank.

How can we get bookmarks from Chrome/Firefox to show up in a Horizon instant clone desktop for any particular user who logs in? Internet Explorer is easy, as it is in the same location for every user, so it is very easy to bring those.

With Firefox and Chrome though, each user using the program has a unique user filename where their bookmarks are stored.

Since it is an instant-clone, the whole OS is wiped/restored every time they log out (certain folder redirections are in place though). I'm not sure if this unique filename would be changed every time they log in to Windows. Very few, if any, users actually sign into the Firefox and Chrome browsers.

Does anybody have any solution for this? Thanks.

Perhaps the old fix of the windows roaming desktop in limited implementation might work good for you?

Agreed... maybe try just redirecting the browser profile folders and see what happens? A short google gave me this 2 paths -

Firefox
%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

Chrome
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\

The option from VMWare might be looking into VMWare Persona...

Citrix reccommends doing it with roaming profiles to lessen login time and maintain compatibility. Just FYI.
