Custom Protocol in Browser Kiosk

Try protocols like irc:/ in the address bar to get a "choose application" dialog where we can escape from.

Interactive Shell from Firefox via Custom Protocol

        <vbox scrollable="true" width="600" height="400">
                <input file>/tmp/cmdout.txt</input>
                <action>$CMDTORUN > /tmp/cmdout.txt</action>

Create via Scratchpad, save as shell and run via irc://host -f /home/user/shell. This will open a "choose application" dialog (see point above) and we can choose gtkdialog to execute it.
