How to put Firefox in Kiosk mode with no scroll bars

Here's how to make Firefox run in kiosk mode. Just install the add-on R-Kiosk.
From now on, Firefox will run in fullscreen with most of the user interface disabled.

If you want to also disable the scroll bars, you have to create a userContent.css file.
1) go to your Profile folder. In Windows 7, it is a subfolder of "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\" with a random name.
2) if a subfolder "chrome" doesn't exist in your profile folder, create the subfolder
3) if the userContent.css file doesn't exist, create it with notepad
4) add this line to the userContent.css file:
html { overflow: -moz-scrollbars-none; }
