We are attempting to deploy kiosk machines across campus using Camino as the sole web browser, 
however we need to be able to lock Camino's functionality down for security purposes and are looking 
for ways to do the following:

* prevent ftp access 

* prevent afp access 

* prevent telnet access and any other protocols from the preferences interface 

* prevent the ability to browse the local file system 

* prevent users from the ability to use the "save" dialog 

It would be great if there was some way to invoke a kiosk-like mode that essentially prevents camino 
from doing anything other than read http and https pages.

If you need further details please let me know.

This seems like a valid enhancement request to me, but I don't know if it's
something that is beyond Camino's scope as a browser that doesn't include the
kitchen sink, so I'll let someone closer to the dev team make the call on
confirming this bug.

Changing the summary, however, to provide more detail of the nature of the
request. Was: Feature Request. New: Add kiosk mode - block non-http(s) protocols.
Summary: Feature Request → Add kiosk mode - block non-http(s) protocols
might be something worth considering for 1.0. The trick, i guess, is providing
the flexibility for various uses without overengineering something.

We can kick it around.
