This is a request for the ability to prevent any changes to the UI for "kiosks". A possibility for kiosks is to just have an NGLayout widget, but you might want more, eg personal, url toolbars, bookmarks, etc. A lot could be achieved through a "kiosk" chrome, see bug #14969 for more details. However, there are more things needed. For example, there are "soft" UI changes. These are changes which I believe shouldn't and I don't believe currently do affect the XUL, but which can be made by the user and remembered. These include the ability to edit the personal toolbar via DND, whether the sidebar appears, whether the toolbars are collapsed and whether they appear. Even if they don't currently save their setting, they should at least be able to so this is still relevant. Proposed soft changes include bug #15144 (ability to remove toolbar buttons) and bug #15322 (ability to reorder toolbars). So all of these should be able to be disabled in the preferences under a "Prevent Soft UI Changes". So basically you need to watch out for implicit ways of changing the UI, since everything else can probably be explicitly ruled out. Another to watch out for is bug #12303, the ability to change the skin from the windows titlebar menu, and you'd probably also want to remove the Win95 close button (can you do this under XUL?)
Oh, I should have mentioned, of course, that the titlebar issues go away if you have a full screen mode, bug #3341.
You would need to take care to remove all "remember this decision" facilities, including those listed in bug #7380.
Or at least, only make them last this session? But can you ensure users log out?
Don, can you take care of this?
Move to M20.

How much longer until this is functional? This ticket is almost 2 years old.
