Features that I would ideally include in "HTPC-optimized":

  1. Full-screen.
  2. Navigable using a remote or the keyboard arrows.
  3. Legible at couch distances.

Or, to put it another way, imagine the design requirements for Hulu Desktop or XBMC or WMC, applied to a web browser.

Opera on a Wii meets most of these criteria but not being HD wastes a lot of potential.

If a single solution doesn't exist, is there some combination of Firefox add-ons that will get me there?

Several browsers, like IE, FF, and Opera (I think), support fullscreen mode, and my bet is that at least Firefox supports remote navigation (there's probably at minimum an about:config tweak like this one to turn it on).

As for being legible, that's not a question of the browser, but the page itself. To make something legible on a big screen from far away, just increase the page zoom (Ctrl+scroll wheel in Firefox on Windows, I believe).
