Change/remove Firefox controls for custom web application
We have started a new software company with the aim of using Firefox as our user interface for all of our apps (both desktop and web based).
We would like to know if the following can be achieved using Firefox:
1. Boot into to full screen mode each time the application is opened (the user should not have to click an html element or press the f11 key to enter full screen) 2. Create an icon on the user's desktop that points to our application (only our app is permissible) 3. We would like to make Firefox a part of our installation process (Firefox installs and points to our application) 4. Upon installation of the application, the icon on the desktop will change to reflect our logo. 5. Can we create custom controls to close, minimize and maximize the default Firefox window? 6. An instance of Firefox that only allows one tab to be open (our application)
Basically, we would like to have full control over Firefox to give our apps a native desktop look and feel but still have the power of the web.

Thank you. @phillip. It seem to be the solution to our problem. I will definitely look into it
