Okay, understandable. In this case your choice is limited,
but that shouldn't be a big problem. Just see how firefox
can be brought into fullscreen mode, either by one of its
own options, or by using the generic -geometry option as
shown in the "dillo" example.

	firefox -width 1024 -height 768

But "firefox -help" doesn't show parameters for positioning,
and also by pressing PF11 for "interactively entered fullscreen
mode", the navigational elements keep being present. But
maybe there's something you can do by configuration file,
so getting rid of navigational bars should be possible too.
