Firefox Customisation

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.

Firefox Customisation

Post#1 by rance » 21 May 2014, 15:38

First can I say I am new to Porteus and Linux, so please be kind :)
Kudos to the creator must say it’s a great product.

I would like to add multiple tabs to open at start-up and wiki to search bar
Is this possible?

I have tried:
unsquashfs 003.settings.xzm
Home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/prefs.js

File says not to be edited and to do URL [url]about:config[/url] but won’t stay.
If I change this file and re-squash squashfs-root

It doesn’t work or Firefox start with “First Time” screen
URL [url]about:config[/url] also has “Locked” lines on some line which can’t be edited.

Is there another file that is the default and overrides this file?http://kb.mozillazine.org/Editing_configuration

I found this but I couldn’t get it to work:
viewtopic.php?t=1578&p=12119

About opening Firefox with multiple tabs : I did it using the homepage "pipe" separator :
user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "https://abcdef.com/|http://www.coffeepoke.com/");

I have followed this great document:
http://files.porteus.org/PorteusKioskEd ... ble-v5.pdf
I have managed to change host name and the desktop image and then re-squash ,make iso, then make hybrid. Which was achievement :D

Hopefully this makes sence…
Thank you in adavance for any help!
Regards
Rance

regarding multiple tabs:
our web wizard supports them so you could do this on the wizard level and then perform other ISO modifications.
btw: 'Public Fox' addon is not present in kiosk-3.1 so there will be no more troubles with prefs.js customization.

regarding wiki search bar - please follow instructions from here:
viewtopic.php?f=127&t=3163#p22394
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Thanks so much for the prompt reply, I'll gave that a go..

I saw a note about 3.1, when does that go live?
