Firefox kiosk mode December 10, 2006

Want to use Firefox in your work, but you think only IE can run in kiosk mode!
Try the Public Fox or R-kiosk extensions.
With Public Fox you can lock the about:config menu, options dialog, addons manager, and prevent unwanted downloads with one central password

USE: For Public Computers

On the other hand, with R-kiosk you lock down the window – it will have no menu’s at all! You can use user_pref(“rkiosk.navbar”, true); to add the nav bar.
–Quoted from addons.mozilla.org:
Notice that the user can still close Firefox with for example Alt-F4 and get access to your computer. You might want to prevent this with a suitable utility program for your operating system.

USE: For Workplace (make homepage the company website, but don’t allow browsing to other pages)

Hey there I am so thrilled I found your webpage, I really found

Regardless I am here now and would just like to say cheers for a
remarkable post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the
theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but I
have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be
back to read more, Please do keep up the great
work.
