Single-Window Interface


I am trying to setup some sort of dummy graphical interface that, when run, will ONLY display some web browser.
My ideal scenario would be to turn on the computer, and have it display some type of interface with only a web browser (say, firefox) open, preferrably unresizable and unclosable. Whenever someone wanted to do something else, they would press Ctrl + Alt + F1
and then work from the terminal.

However, I have no idea where to start looking. Is this an XWindows related thing? Is there some X Window Manager that will allow this kind of task?

Thanks a lot for your time!!

Use X without window manager.
