You will have to create a customized session at /usr/share/xsessions and Enable Auto-Login.

Example:

1) Open a file (gksu gedit /usr/share/xsessions/Firefox.desktop) and paste:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Firefox (No effects)
Comment=This session only opens Firefox
Exec=/usr/bin/firefox -height 1200 -width 1600
Icon=
Type=Application

References: 1, 2.

Could you explain to the OP how to make this session for any program? –  hexafraction Aug 2 '12 at 15:31
    
@desgua : Thanks for sharing, it is working like a charm except for one thing. The window doesn't cover the complete screen area. Some area is left on right side and bottom. I tried same with Opera and Chromium, to no avail. I also tried a pyGtk app and used window.fullScreen(). That also leaves some area on all sides. I couldn't understand whats the issue. –  Juzer Ali Sep 5 '12 at 15:10
