Thanks for all the replies guys.
I've been messing about with a number of DSL versions and different computers now so I'm a little confused but AFAIK:
With DSL 3.4.1, 4.0, 4.1RC3 and JWM, I cannot use the keyboard in fullscreen FF.
DSL 4.0, 4.1RC3 and Fluxbox, I can use the keyboard (didn't seem to work first time though?!) and FF seems to open in a kind of fullscreen automatically which is just what I want for a kiosk.
Don't know what the problem is with JWM, it can't be RAM though because I got the same problem on my Toshiba laptop which has 768MB ram.
I'm not fussed by what window manager I use, so I'm just going to go with fluxbox for now.
I've been sitting on this post for half an hour now and I've realised what I'd really like to do is start Firefox from Xvesa without any window manager at all. I've added a few lines to .xinitrc and commented out everything else other than references to the keyboard.
Now firefox starts fine, but you guessed it, keyboard is not working again!
Anyone (with kiosk building experience?) know how to enable keyboard support with Firefox started from Xvesa without a window manager?!
Really appreciating the help!
