Cookie persistence does not work. Porteus 3.7.0 (solved)

Post#1 by Kerschensteiner » 11 Jun 2018, 18:23

I am a newbie and installed porteus 3.7.0 (32 Bit) with the following configuration

Code: Select all

connection=wired
network_interface=eth0
dhcp=yes
browser=Chrome
additional_components=uefi.zip
timezone=Europe/Berlin
persistence=full
disable_private_mode=yes
scheduled_action=Monday-20:00 Tuesday-20:00 Wednesday-20:00 Thursday-20:00 Friday-20:00 action:shutdown
rtc_wake=Monday-6:30 Tuesday-6:30 Wednesday-6:30 Thursday-6:30 Friday-6:30
whitelist=mywebsite.de
homepage_check=Nice try
autohide_navigation_bar=yes
primary_keyboard_layout=de
secondary_keyboard_layout=de
homepage=https://mywebsite.de
I want to show up a website, which generates a cookie and an entry in the local storage (with encryption and decryption information) when visiting for the first time. But unfortunately the above mentioned configuration does not make the cookies persistent. If I close and restart the browser all saved information are lost.

I did find the other thread But I did not find the quick erase option in the wizard.
Besides I tested Firefox and chrome. Both of them do not save cookies persistently. I spent several hours in trying to rearrange the installation configuration order and stuff like this, but now you are my only hope (obi wan porteusobi ;-) )

Persistence was introduced in kiosk 4.1.0:

For kiosk 3.7.0 you should only use options available in 3.7.0 wizard rather than from our 'Parameters' page which applies to latest kiosk release:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html

If you need persistent cookies in 32bit kiosk you may use kiosk customized builds service:

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
