suse linux embedded firefox locked down?

We want to setup Dell FX 160 thinclient with Suse Linux operating system loaded on it to automatically launch Firefox with Citrix URL in full screen.

We could configure Linux thin client to autostart firefox with citrix URL. Everything looks good to start with. But we would like to launch firefox in fullscreen permanently and restrict user gain access to Suse linux desktop.

We did pressed F11 to make firefox full screen but after restart it will show the taskbar and toolbar, so I want to request you for the configuration which can make the firefox window fullscreen restricting user to minimize or gain any access to Linux desktop.

Need step by step guide on suse linux thin client configuration to auto login to virtual desktop with appliance locked.

Can you help me pls?

Since no one has answered, I will offer my $.02 I believe what you are trying to accomplish is known as 'Kiosk Mode'. A Google search should reveal numerous useful hits.
