I currently use this method to emulate chrome's kiosk-mode in Firefox Quantum on Windows 10:

  1. Install Firefox Quantum
  2. Install AddOn AutoFullscreen
  3. in Firefox's address-bar, type about:config and set the parameters zoom.maxPercent & zoom.minPercent to 100 (hence, disabling zoom)
  4. CREATE Folder/File "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>.default\chrome\userChrome.css" with the following content:

    @namespace 
    url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");
    #fullscr-toggler { display:none!important; }
    
  5. Disable all System-Notifications in Windows 10

  6. Disable (if possible) all System-Touch-Gestures to disable all Windows 10 Bars and Menus by going to the Local Policy Editor -> Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Edge UI and disable allow edge swipe

It would be interesting to know if there are better/easier alternatives ways to achieve the same.

Firefox does not support real kiosk mode. The add-ons below might help in setting it up :

The following are ideas for additions to your procedure :

  • Use a separate profile for kiosk mode and start firefox with -no-remote -p
  • Set the home page
  • If the Bookmarks Toolbar is visible, add useful links
  • Turn off password management
  • Make Firefox automatically delete personal data and history on exit
  • Useful ideas, indeed. The "Modern-Kiosk" add-on looks promising, but in its current experimental state is not really an option for production environments, since it lacks some key features (autostart) and still feels a bit buggy. Will hopefully get better soon. – Eduardo López Sep 11 '18 at 8:25
  • The best way to make it better is to communicate with the author. Interest in his product does encourage a developer. – harrymc Sep 11 '18 at 8:30
