Firefox in full screen mode

How do you add items to your startup in linux?

Also, is it possible to add firefox to my startup, have it load in full screen mode, and only have a back, forward, and home button (so the user cannot get to the desktop)?

Lightbulb linux startup programs

if they are just regular programs see:

if it is daemons/services, go to


you can remove the ones listed there by using the command

update-rc.d -f program_script_name remove

Alternatively, you have the option in GNOME from the following:

menu>preference>sessions>startup..add command

As for starting Firefox in Kiosk mode, with limited access....I would have to check on that one.
