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:

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.
