Never remember passwords for all users?

I proposing deploying k-meleon on a number of thin client terminals that are run by windows terminal server. Each terminal (100's) are accessible publicly and we cannot allow the option to save passwords. We also can not visit each terminal to turn off this feature. There does not appear to be a command line to prevent this (as I thought kiosk mode would). Each terminal is accessing the same installation of k-meleon. Is there some way we can prevent passwords from being saved?

Where is the profile for KM located? I am not an expert on kiosk mode. Does the kiosk mode provide the menu items EDIT - PREFERENCES and EDIT CONFIGURATION to the terminal user?

I don't know if this is direct or helpful, and I don't know much about the default kiosk mode but past discussion indicates it doesn't go far enough, but through various intensive customizations of the browser you should be able to achieve what you want, while locking end users out of the ability to change settings.

Might I suggest that you could change menu.cfg such that preferences and configuration don't appear and set a macro with an OnSetup action to set user_pref("signon.rememberSignons", false);
