Linux kiosk needs to run applet but does not allow popups.

Good day all.

I'm working with a Ubuntu box designed to be a kiosk, not allowing users to browse or use other apps.
It runs Firefox on boot, with one URL entered, not changable. It goes to a server on our net that has JBoss, and
a war application that runs a Java applet. The applet is signed.

Our trouble is, that the security warning box still tries to pop up asking for confirmation to run the applet.
We cannot click on it, since popups are disabled in Firefox.

Is there a way from the command line to alter the java settings to disable mixed-code validation for the JVM ?
Or, is there some file we can change in /etc to allow the same thing ?

Thanks.....
