I'm trying to disable the Firefox Library completely
Hi guys, I'm working on locking down Firefox for some of our corporate machines, and in at least one of our configurations, I need to completely remove access to the Library and all it's components for security reasons, as it could be abused to browse local drives, and these are supposed to be kiosks.
Is there a way to either disable the UI element of the Library (what's the CSS ID, and then I can try to put it in CCK2 to disable that UI element) or to completely disable the Library window/functions/feature itself?

Your enterprise related question about a kiosk-like mode has me stumped :-) Luckily there's a mailing list for enterprise stuff that you can subscribe to using the form on this page:

I'm also going to try tweaking browser.uiCustomization.state
I've enrolled and I'll ask away, but I'll leave this open for a bit longer to see if anyone else has any ideas.
I'm particularly interested in remapping or disabling the commands themselves, because that seems to be as "foolproof" as we can get, rather than just turning off UI elements and changing keyboard shortcuts (which is challenging to do without an add-on).
I may have accomplished this. I believe it is either with #places or #PlacesOrganizer (although I also tried #frame)
I'll update with the specific solution once I understand what's going on a bit better.
The outcome is that the Library function appears when invoked, but the window contains no content - just an empty white non-interactive window with only the title bar standard stuff: clickable Firefox icon and resize buttons.
