its better to use fluxbox for this instead of gnome

run "usefluxbox"
edit the script /root/fluxbox and replace "gnome-terminal &" with "firefox &"
write your firefox parameters before the &

you get the firefox help page with "firefox --help"
to startup with a page simply use ex. "firefox www.plop.at"

as i know the kiosk mode is a plugin that has to be downloaded and installed. you have to read some docs if you have no experience with it.

personally, i am an opera fan. opera has a kiosk mode built in.
