Disable new tab in Chrome allow to open the new site

Post#1 by Christian » 16 Jun 2022, 05:37

Hi all

This may be an easy fix - I hope.

I'm struggling with the fact that I need to allow the user to click between different sites, but some of them is opening in a new tab, and when that happens some of the other software I'm using as overlay will not work.

So I was wondering if it is possible to disable new tabs, but not blocking new sites? So the new site just opens in the current chrome tab, nonetheless of the websites settings.
My biggest issue is with pdf's, with automatically opens in a new tab.

Hope it makes sense and that it can be fixed

Chrisitan,

Is this issue related to Porteus Kiosk?
If yes then please test Firefox as its forced to open new links in the same tab when the navigation bar is disabled.

Thanks
