Show bookmarks bar, Hide navigation bar

Post#1 by mrtn » 29 Aug 2017, 14:30

Hi,

I want my Kiosk users to be able to browse 2 websites.
My ideal setup would be having a bookmarks bar with both websites, but no navigation bar as I need the screen estate.

My current configuration is:

Code: Select all

browser=firefox
managed_bookmarks=https://www.web1.com/|Name_1| https://www.web2.com|Name_2|
disable_navigation_bar=yes
Having

Code: Select all

disable_navigation_bar=yes
set, the bookmarks bar is not shown. Even with

Code: Select all

autohide_navigation_bar=yes
, the bookmarks bar is not shown. The bookmarks bar seems to only be shown if the navigation bar is shown permanently.

Any suggestions how to implement my ideal setup?
Does it maybe work with Chrome instead? [UPDATE: I tried it with Chrome and disable_navigation_bar=yes, does not work either (bookmark bar is not shown).]

Thank you very much!
Best, Martin

Hi Martin,

"My ideal setup would be having a bookmarks bar with both websites, but no navigation bar as I need the screen estate."
Only customized build would allow this (conky applet with specific rules).

"The bookmarks bar seems to only be shown if the navigation bar is shown permanently."
Here is solution for autohide navigation bar and bookmarks visible:

It will be implemented by default in next kiosk release (week or two from now).

Thanks

Thank you very much for your quick response.

Another question: Is it possible to trigger a session restart from within the browser, eg. via JavaScript?

I dont think this is possible. Maybe with an addon:
