Firefox Kiosk Mode
A Kiosk Mode is available for Firefox in version 71 (so you may need to update your browser.)
To enable Kiosk Mode, use the following target in a desktop shortcut
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" --kiosk "https://clients.signagelive.com/browserplayer/latest/index.html"
To allow autoplay of videos with sound, you need to follow these steps:

- Enter the player URL into the address bar.
- Next to the address, there is a padlock and sliders icon, click this.
- There is a Permissions section, which should list “Autoplay”.
- Select “Allow Audio and Video” from the drop down.
- Now when you launch Firefox in kiosk mode video will autoplay with sound.
Safari Kiosk Mode
Safari does not support Kiosk Mode by default, to achieve this you need to use a third party iPad Kiosk configuration tool.
The only option Apple provide is Guided Access mode, where you can lock down the iPad to a single app, but this still displays the address bar in the browser. You also then have to limit the websites the ipad is allowed to visit.
