See http://ananddrs.com/2014/03/07/firefox-fullscreen/


Firefox doesn't have -fullscreen option

You can use xdotool and create a shell script as follows.

firefox http://www.google.com & # one can use any url
sleep 5
xdotool key F11 # hit full screen

But am also getting the same error without -fullscreen –  Senthil Jun 26 '14 at 7:19
That looks like just a warning. See bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/1160569 I am assuming firefox starts up fine despite of the error shown. –  Myth Jun 26 '14 at 7:28
