Run gksudo gedit /usr/share/xsessions/firefox.desktop, and paste in the following, then save and exit.

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Firefox
Comment=This session logs you into Terminal
Exec=/usr/bin/firefox -height xxx width xxx
Icon=
Type=Application

You should now have a new session at the login screen, named Firefox, that will autoload Firefox only.
