new install not remembering password/login

In my script to backup my Portus changes I have this section:

Code: Select all

#                  -- Network files --
#                  touch /var/lib/dhcpcd/dhcpd.leases
cp -a --parents    /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/*       /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents    /var/run/NetworkManager/*                      /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents    /var/lib/dhcpcd/*                              /tmp/mod/
cp -a --parents    /etc/hosts                                     /tmp/mod/
I believe the touch command only needs to be done one time which is why I have it commented out.

Kiosk is locked down so none of your advice will work.

IMO: this is a webpage issue (could be an incompatibility with certain browser version) and not a kiosk system problem.

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

I've tried using firefox, and although the password is working there, the website the kiosk serves becomes unusable slow
