No, the IE library shouldn't have some functions because FF library has it. FF library shouldn't have some functions because IE has it. IE and FF are different.

That being said. You can create an embedded IE page in a full screen GUI.

No, it's impossible to edit IE.au3 in this stage.


Kiosk mode is not available to the COM interface, only command-line (theatre mode is available in _IEPropertySet, but is different)

Here is an example of automating a browser in kiosk mode:

#include <IE.au3>

Global $oIE

; Create browser in Kiosk mode, hidden.  use unique URL we will later search and find
;   (about: is actually is actually an IE macro that we use to our advantage)
Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\internet explorer\iexplore.exe -k " & "about:findme", "", @SW_HIDE)

; Suppress expected NoMatch messages from the loop

; Attach to browser once created
While Not IsObj($oIE)
    $oIE = _IEAttach("about:findme", "url")

; Turn error display back on

; Navigate browser to desired localtion
_IENavigate($oIE, "www.autoitscript.com")

; Make browser visible
WinSetState(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd"), "", @SW_SHOW)

; Quit browser after 10 seconds

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
