The code below opens a specific website in Firefox, but I want it to open in fullscreen mode.

The -Fullscreen at the end does not do anything.
firefox -URL "http://www.example.com/" -Fullscreen

Open in new window

There doesn't seem to be a command-line option for that.

Try using this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/full-fullscreen/

you can install the add-on at the site below and then use the -fullscreen command.

It has only been tested with XP and Ubuntu so if you are using another platform I would test before you put into production.
