Starting around Monday, something happened to the configuration. There was no time to figure it out. But what I noticed is that the user has the opportunity to drag the page's fingers to the bookmarks bar with a finger. When installing the automatic update seems to be disabled.

Your post is so chaotic that i dont even know where to start ...

1) Kiosk ISO is read only so nothing changes until the admin update remote config.
a) did you update remote config?
b) do you have full persistence enabled?
c) please provide your kiosk config

2) I'm not sure what you mean by:
"user has the opportunity to drag the page's fingers to the bookmarks bar with a finger"
whats are the "page's fingers"?

3) Do you mean that latest kiosk version from 'automatic updates' channel fixes this problem?

Thanks

Excuse me. It was not possible to answer. I found a similar reason for the incorrect display of the site being opened in the browser. If you open the site in the latest version of Firefox from a computer, then everything is displayed as needed. Is it possible to upgrade the browser to the latest version in Porteus Kiosk?
I also found a bug in my configuration - students of the school (users) can drag any element of an open page (create a link) to the bookmarks panel by dragging it with a finger on the touchscreen of the kiosk.

Hi Funtik,

1) See here regarding Firefox upgrade:
Video screensaver, usb, redirect to home (Post by fanthom #72027)

Maybe Chrome would work better for you?

2) Please post your kiosk config (remove sensitive data like passwords).

Thanks

Just tested the bookmarks issue and seems its not possible to add new bookmarks only when you use Chrome browser with private mode enabled (default setting).

Thanks

Ok. Thanks.

You need to switch from Firefox ESR to normal Firefox.

This is used made customization so please do not ask me how to do it.
