The problem I have is there's no way to disable the back/forward/refresh buttons that would work other than using hte javascript function, open(). It would be cool if I can specify a short XML script for XUL on the html webpage.

Well, it's useful for my company's website where users are told not to use the refresh, back or forward buttons or they'll end up getting duplicated items on their bills. Well, it had to do with the fact that the web-browser are designed to read the webpage once, from top to bottom. Not like a video games that aren't narrow minded. Having buttons on the webpages and have people do that doesn't help either because of their habit.
