Re: Save Firefox Security Exception Permanently

Hi, I just ran on the same problem today, discovered that all https page (at least google.fr & .com, yahoo.com) would display security warning... Currently checking out if proper libraries are there, and correct rights as well. EDIT : root@debian:~/iso/porteus/base# unsquashfs 002-firefox.xzm Parall...

Re: How to disable Firefox Quick find feature

Code: Select all

user_pref("accessibility.typeaheadfind", false);
Or simply removing the line should do the trick as false is the default value.

[Solved]How to disable Firefox Quick find feature

Which is pretty annoying. Any key pressed on a page opens this quick find features, digging a bit around didn't give me a satisfying answers, such as :

Code: Select all

user_pref("searchkeys.disable.all", true);
Which isn't doing anything, I guess this is for an old version of firefox.
Anyone tried to do this?

Re: [Solved]Where is stored password for PublicFox?

Managed to do this by setting password through wizard and decrypting the conf file.

Re: Where is stored password for PublicFox?

Ok thank you guys, I managed to get it working somehow.

Last thing, extensions.dlwatch.pass is the key for PublicFox password? It is md5 encoded right? Can't get it to work though.

Re: Where is stored password for PublicFox?

As well as for browser home page, is there any other place to set it then in prefs.js? It is still taking me to porteus.org!!

[Solved]Where is stored password for PublicFox?

Hello there,
Everything in title. I thought it was in prefs.js, but doesn't look like. Any idea?
The thing is, my kiosk is now really modified and recreating a new image each time is really a pain in the a**.

Thanks,
Steven

Re: no possible root with su

Just to tell that this was possible without modifying anything, just installing sshd, and ssh root@localhost would do the trick ^^

Re: no possible root with su

Yes, obviously, people want different things, which may not be the same as you. That's why we use linux, because we can do whatever suits us. What I do understand though is that you don't want to work on this case :) My kiosks should have a shell, because admins should be able to access command line...

Re: no possible root with su

Hi, interesting!
Are you using Kiosk edition? As fantom said, su shouldn't have this right :%)

guest has no perms to use 'su'. in order for getting back to the root account you have to use 'exit' command or press 'ctrl+d'.
Hi,
yes, how can I give guest this right?

Re: no possible root with su

But I don't have a modified shadow file...
Rewrote my root password in case, but no change, su stills tells me wrong password. Checked my shadow file on my kiosk and password is ok.

Can anyone try

Code: Select all

su - guest; su 


And tell me if he can get back to root?
