Company Use: Diaable some Functions

User Help for Mozilla Firefox

Post Posted October 29th, 2003, 4:50 pm


I am thinking about a company use. Because of our security policy, I need to disable some functions for some users. How can I disable the download function and the (or part of the) edit preferences functions for example?

Thanks a lot for your answer

Best regards

Take a look at this tutorial on how to modify Firebird to use as a kiosk. It states it doesn't prevent downloading, but should let you disable many features. I found the link to it at

I guess you could experiment with remapping the MIME types as needed to make downloading a wasted effort (using the things they left out extension), and then disable the ability to remap the MIME types.

If you can't get Firebird to do what you want, Opera also supports a kiosk mode .

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Do you see a chance to disable downloads by disable (or auto answer) the download dialog and/or stream the download data to the nul device?
