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: -pekr-
