Firefox unexpected urlbar search engine change after localisation

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Firefox unexpected urlbar search engine change after localisation

Post#1 by SaLMoN » 14 Apr 2020, 08:25

Hi,
I'm trying to customize Porteus Kiosk 5.0 ISO. Change of firefox search engine without language pack works fine (via search_engine config option), but when language pack is loaded, it automatically changes to another (default? first on the list?) - in my case (PL) to Allegro. It looks like the engine switches over a moment after the browser is loaded (I can see the desired search engine in the bar for a second). I tried to hardcode values at prefs.js (user_pref browser.urlbar.placeholderName) - no results. Any another way to achieve great success?:P
