Mozilla in kiosk mode

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Robert Nilsson, Jun 8, 2005.

  1. Hi there

    I've modified my browser.xul pretty much and I've got it just as I want
    it now, but thre is still one thing that I really don't know how to do.
    I'm not even sure that this is something that can be done from withing
    Firefox.

    I'm using this kiosk-version of firefox on our production PC's at work.
    The client are using vnc from a windows machine into a Redhat server
    with firefox installed. I don't want them to run anything else than
    firefox, so I don't start a desktop for each session. Instead I just
    start firefox in the ~/.vnc/xstartup file. This however do NOT maximize
    the firefox in the vnc window and I have no idea of how to do that.

    Can anyone tell me how to do it or where to look? Is it possible to set
    the size on the window from browser.xul?

  2. Hello again

    Now I've realized that if I press F11 Firefox maximizes in my vnc
    window, so this is exactly what I want. But is it possible that Firefox
    "press F11" by itself on startup?
