We use some old thin clients as digital signage boards that just shows a website (Firefox full screen). We recently introduced some web pages that are dynamic, where the content is updated every few minutes. Is there a way to have the browser auto refresh the page on a schedule?
I don’t see the option to refresh a tab but I may be missing it. Would `Restart` work instead?
Well, without using a separate Browser extension (igelcommunity.slack.com/archives/C8WEVHWH2/p1553590913063700) I would go for a Browser Idle restart:
Settings in Setup > Browser Sessions > Global > Settings > Restart
Thanks guys – I think auto browser restart may work the easiest.
I have this set on my kiosk but i when the browser does “timeout” the browser does not restart, only if I click F5 to refresh the page then the browser will restart. What im looking to do is have a browser restart every 2 hours.
Then I guess that a conditional command should help: kb.igel.com/igellinux/en/configuring-a-conditional-countdown-and-command-4237879.html kb.igel.com/igellinux/en/configuring-a-conditional-countdown-and-command-4237879.html
