switching tabs in Firefox when disabling the address bar

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.

switching tabs in Firefox when disabling the address bar

Post#1 by rh102801 » 23 Dec 2016, 13:18

If I don't hide the address bar I can hot CTRL + Tab to switch back and forth between different open tabs in Firefox but if I hide the address bar I can only switch tabs one. As an example, I have two tabs that open automatically when I start my kiosk to two different sites. I can CTRL + Tab from the 1st one to the second one and then back but if I hide the address bar when I switch to the 2nd one I can't come back to the 1st one and since the address bar is hidden I can't use the mouse to it either.
Has anyone else experienced this? Do you know of a work around? if I don't hide the address bar, can I still keep the users from typing a different address and going to another site?

Thanks

Hello rh102801,

Are you using latest kiosk version? I cant recreate your problem - Ctrl+Tab works all the time. Unless you meant 'disable navigation bar' rather than 'disable address bar'?

Thanks
