please let me know how to setup the kiosk in windowed mode not full screen. we are using the extention backend with users that need access to their desktop but we also only need them to browse the company website. (possible?)
This is exactly what i was looking for! Replaced 2 other extensions that were doing parts of what this addon does. Works great in FF3.
Also, thanks to the poster who solved the pop-up issue!
Using this with Procon latte makes for the perfect Kiosk with only access to your site.
This is an excellent extension! Hope to see FF 3 support soon.
in fact r-kiosk is released for FF3, just click on See all versions : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addons/versions/1659 and choose the last one wich is experimental but works find !
when is r-kiosk going to be avaiable for firefox 3.x? we will need this extension very urgent.
Once in Kiosk mode all i had to do was hit F1 and the start menu came up! Go to run and go to taskmgr and kill firefox??? Not to safe man. Any other extensions like this that work?
Funciona a la perfeccion, pero ¿Como puedo permitir el uso de minimizar/maximizar/cerrar?
The following modification allowed me to stop popup windows from going full screen: (Edit rkioskbrowser.js inside the rkiosk.jar file - add the rkioskparentexists function and replace the rkioskdelayedstartup function)
if (!content.window.opener) return false;
return (content.window.opener.location == content.window.location)? false : true;
if (!RkioskparentExists()) window.fullScreen = true;
Does what it says on the tin, perfect for my application.
This is a perfect addon, except for the full-screen problem as noted in other reviews. Unfortunately I can\'t deploy until this is fixed or there is a workaround.
This was a great solution for my K-9 class. Combine this with NoScript and you have yourself a solution for even the most rowdiest of students.
This also worked well at my Spec Ed facility because it keeps those more pesky students away from key files while still enabling them to browse the web.
YES - first of all - really usable addon!\r\nB U T !!\r\nPlease give a hint, what do do against full-screen opening of small popups. Ther are too many situations where small windows open without the nav-bar in full-screen mode an then the user cannot close the window. Please fix that.\r\nThanks in advance!\r\n
Small Popups also get maximized to fullscreen size. BAD!!!
A few more words of description, purpose and warnings before installing it would be very useful. I ran it thinking that It would basically give me an easy full screen option. Finding my way back to uninstalling it was quite stressfull. It works all right, but may trap some less experienced users.
That's thr reason for the low score
