Disable Popup Blocker

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.

Disable Popup Blocker

Post#1 by jmbmichael » 26 Jan 2015, 19:24

How would I go about disabling the popup block in the Kiosk iso? We utilize a particular website that requires the use of a popup.

please remaster the ISO as per kiosk documentation and add following parameter to 003-settings.xzm/home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/prefs.js:

Code: Select all

user_pref("dom.disable_open_during_load", false);


btw: few other users asked for this before so possibility of unblocking popup windows will be available in next kiosk version.

thanks

still need to implement some features from my TODO list (e.g.: scheduled tasks like reboot/shutdown) so it will take a couple of weeks.
