Kiosk Edition - Save Cookies / Passwords

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Kiosk Edition - Save Cookies / Passwords

Post#1 by twilightm0nkey » 30 Apr 2014, 11:54

Greetings,

I've just started testing out Porteus Kiosk Edition and it's fantastic.

I would like to configure the browser to save the login credentials / cookies for the site I'm accessing.

Is there a way to do this?

I'm using the Hybrid image on a USB flash drive.

hi twilightm0nkey,

we are doing our best to prevent such things in kiosk so it wont be that easy :)

anyway - please do as follows:
- read Kiosk FAQ how to perform manual ISO customizations
- download and install firefox-24.x ESR on your current distro
- create clean firefox profile
- launch fx -> login to sites you want -> make sure cookies gets/passwords saved
- replace original content of /home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default from 003-settings.xzm with your one
- create new kiosk ISO and check if everything works

btw: moving you thread to the Kiosk section of the forum.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
