I don't know - according to following site, there is also easier way -
but still some options don't seem to work.
I also got to the article describing how Borland faked embedding Mozilla
into their Kylix - they run mozilla process with -width and -height
parameters and just assured that Kylix can communicate with mozilla
process to exchange keyboard focus info, etc. Something like that could
be sufficient - I would run Rebol top and bottom bar, easily do virtual
keyboard, but command-line switches don't work for me here yet.
As you can see, old Communicator feature kiosk and super-kiosk modes -
Mozilla doesn't and my suspicion is - the way to solve it is to use XUL
or some other tweak ...
List of Mozilla's command line options are here:
