Forget to say, without scrollbars if possible :). I need it to start like PRESENTATION SOFTWARE. Full Screen Only.

Use the autohide extension:

The scroll bars will only be there if needed.

from http://www.krickelkrackel.de/autohide/autohidehelp.htm
Start Browser in full screen mode:

* Use "-fullscreen" as command line option
* for specific site: -URL "http://www.google.com" -fullscreen

* Or shutdown while in full screen mode

An easy way to use the -fullscreen is to do it with a desktop shortcut.

The Complaint department link is borked until unknown time.

Use "-fullscreen" as command line option

@James: is that a new switch because it isn't in the kb article (are there more?): http://kb.mozillazine.org/Command_line_arguments

(I forgot to add that you must exit Fx while in full-screen mode to make it remember that for autohide)

The -fullscreen switch is due to the Autohide extension.
