desire firefox kiosk mode where full screen allows an exit (other than ALT + F4) only one URL required for company timesheet entry. No optons. No navigation.

Posted

using win 7 x86 SP1, firefox 18 with kiosk add-in r_kiosk-0.9.0-fx.xpi . Full screen kiosk mode uses one URL to company time entry sheet. Firefox is not company standard and needs to be provided for this purpose only. We're adept at virtualized delivery via AppV and have a solution BUT.... Really like the lack of toolbars providing no option to the user. No right click, no navigation. Perfect except there's no close or exit option except keyboard stroke such as ALT+F4. I'm not talented enough to modify the XPI file to provide a full screen kiosk BUT with a close option simple enough for 3500 end users. Advice appreciated.

Hi there,

You might want to check out the kiosk add-ons for Firefox. A quick search on addons.mozilla.org gave me this result: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/r-kiosk/. Haven't tested it myself, but hopefully it's close to what you're requesting!

Cheers, David

Thank You David. The add-on you are suggesting is exactly the kiosk add-on specified in the question. That is the one that does not have a close button. Thank You again for researching this.
