Well you could ask someone who knows a little about pieLINKs ;)

1) Some investigation will show that firefox cannot be started in 'kiosk mode'
but you can switch to it with F11 once started - which is pretty silly in some
There are several extensions to play with, try searching 'full screen extension'
on add-ons in mozilla.org, or this one is also interesting

2) Cant tell you how we do it, but Mike's comments below are right, you have to
investigate GDM, KDE, or simpler DMs to show windows without title bars and borders.

good luck

There are only 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary and
those who don't.
