Firefox fullscreen kiosk machine

Update (2 Dec 2005): kiosk extension is broken, I'm now using a hacked browser.jar (version 1.0.7), I made a few changes to xinitrc-common as well Simple kiosk implementation, not entirely thorough, but enough for our purposes. Machine boots and gdm logs into a user without a password, firefox starts fullscreen and opens our homepage. Simple to implement.
