kioskfox is a Browser software developed by ushort. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for kioskfox:

Locks Firefox down so it can be used as a public kiosk. Removal instructions are in the full description.


This extension is a non-configurable kiosk extension. Hopefully, in the future, I will find the time to make it into a completely configurable kiosk solution.

Ideally, in a kiosk environment, Firefox would be setup to automatically restart using something like a looping Batch file or shell script. For example, in Microsoft Windows, you could replace the explorer.exe shell with said batch file.

Features:

* Adds a logout button, which quits the application, to the upper-corner of the program. The button is there simply because it looks nice in a kiosk environment.

* Sets firefox to Autostart in private browsing mode.

* Removes most right-click context menus.

* Sets windows to open in only in new tabs.

* Disables changing the homepage.

* Disables downloading files with unknown content types (any file that would Ask you to download it).

* Disables installing extensions, themes, personas, plugins, and search engines.

* Forces the browser to be fullscreen.

* Removes all shortcut keys.

* Whitelists the protocol schemes: data, javascript, http, https, ftp, and wyciwyg. All other schemes such as Chrome and file are blocked.

* In a Microsoft Windows environment it will lock access to to the open, save, and print dialogs this will extend into all other plugins as well such as Adobe Reader and Shockwave Flash. This must be done on your own in other environments such as Linux. This however is not as big of a deal in those environment as it is in Microsoft Windows. The main issue in Windows is that one can execute files from the open and save dialogs.
