Short Description
Firefox in an LXDE desktop with VNC access. Fox In Box.
Full Description

run this container with something like :

docker run -it --rm -p 5901:5901 -e USER=root --name Thing1 georgegeorgulasiv/foxinbox bash -c "vncserver :1 -geometry 1440x900 -depth 24 && tail -F /root/.vnc/*.log"

docker run -it --rm (the base of the docker run command)

-p 5901:5901 (maps HOST:CONTAINER port forwarding, should be VWXYZ:5901)

USER=root (login to the container's PID space as root, probably not great but saves on 'sudo's)

--name = Thing1 (names the container, totally optional. But show Dr. Seuss some love.)

georgegeorgulasiv/foxinbox (the image repository you are using with docker run)

bash -c "vncserver :1 -geometry 1440x900 -depth 24 && tail -F /root/.vnc/.log" (uses bash in the container to start the vnc server with screen dimensions of -geometry WIDTHxHEIGHT, etc., and logs the output to /root.vnc/.log

and it will prompt you for a VNC password to control
then a confirmation of that password
then ask you if you want to set a view-only password
then ask if you said yes
prompt you for the view password
and then the confirmation of the view password

and VNC to DOCKERHOST:PORT and you're in business - LXDE with a fresh disposable Installation of Mozilla Firefox.
