Have you looked at the r-kiosk add-on for firefox? I've not used it,
just know of it. Sounds like it would handle some of your needs.
Perhaps it could be setup as the login program for a user who is
automatically logged in at boot time. That way if a visitor kills
the browser, the login session ends and automatically restarts.
