A kiosk mode in firefox would be much appreciated
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4) Gecko/20090423 Firefox/3.5b4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4) Gecko/20090423 Firefox/3.5b4 A kiosk mode would be a good feature to add to firefox. It should be "real" full screen. Not like the F11 options that keep a bar on the top edge of the screen. Some interesting kiosk mode option could be implemented such as : - Disable mouse (eg: for keyboard driven applciation) - Disable keyboard - Hide mouse pointer when idle - Disable context menu - Disable download ... PS: I saw extensions such as "real kiosk" or "full fullscreen" but they can't be considered as a real kiosk mode such as those found in IE, konqueror and opera. Reproducible: Always
I am working on a Firefox extension that does disables context menu and download: http://webconverger.org/kiosk/ However hiding mouse can be done with a X program: http://packages.qa.debian.org/u/unclutter.html Likewise disabling mouse/keyboard input can be probably tweaked best at the OS level, i.e. with some X parameter.
