Kiosk distribution with Pale moon

Postby hendry » Sun Apr 16, 2017 12:24 pm

Hi there,

After blogging about the difficult developments of Firefox https://webconverger.org/blog/2017/Is_i ... converger/ I was put onto Palemoon.

Webconverger is 10+ year old self-updating distribution (Debian derivative) with 4000+ deployments which is designed to be used in public / corporate / locked down environments, giving sane access to the open Web. It's opensource, though it just about sustains itself with a business side where it charges for a configuration management service.

https://github.com/webconverger/

Our "lock down" extension https://github.com/Webconverger/webconverger-addon appears to mostly work with Palemoon. Except the opening screen of Palemoon's links and our theme / logo not showing in the chrome and the tab things: https://s.natalian.org/2017-04-16/14923 ... 0x1408.png

Hopefully I can work out how to disable these things. Otherwise just wanted to say "Hi" and voice my intention to explore using Pale Moon instead of Firefox. If this a bad or good idea, would be nice to know.

Many thanks from Singapore,

If you intend to ship Pale Moon with a distribution like that with pre-installed add-ons and/or different configuration, be aware that you can't "just do so". If you want to do this, then we must agree to the terms of officially-branded binary distribution with your intended configuration. Please see: http://www.palemoon.org/redist.shtml

Feel free to get in touch via e-mail to work this out.

You run "palemoon.exe -jsconsole" in the Command Line:

Throws an error in Error Console:

Code: Select all

NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND: Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)
[nsIXPCComponents_Utils.import]
chrome://webconverger/content/wc.js

See:

Code: Select all

Components.utils.import("resource:///modules/CustomizableUI.jsm");

This file not exist in Pale Moon.
