is it possible to start Firefox with a specific URL with toolbar and menus disabled?
Background: we have an intranet webapplication, and i want to make a shortcut
on the desktop for all users, which opens the URL in a new window without toolbars
and menus. If the user opens firefox with the default shortcut, then toolbars and
menus should remain enabled.
PS: Firefox is great :-)
shortcut: (assume windows and firefox is default browswer)
firefox.exe www.name.com or let www.name.com be the home page.
as to disable toolbars and menus ... I am assuming that you don't want want them to be displayed.
easy way ..... menu editor extension
Customize application menus:
Rearrange or remove menuitems from the main context menu (right-click menu) and main menubar (File Edit View etc.)

hard way ....... add entries to userChrome.css

PS .... ChromEdit extension is a User File Editor for all the major Mozillan applications which lets you edit userChrome.css, userContent.css and user.js from the comfort of your app., there is no requirement for you to know the location of your profile. ...... THE BAD PART IS THAT IT DOES NOT WORK IN FIREFOX !.5 (bumping does not work with this one) .... and the author does not seem to be willing to fix it to work in Firefox 1.5 .....

thank you for the extensive reply, but it doesn't solve my problem. You are right, firefox
is default browser and the platform is windows. I don't want to change the default
look of the browser - it should remain with toolbars and windows when started with
the default shortcut.
