Removing the Local Web Browser

Rationale

The local web browser may expose vulnerabilities to the Internet and can be an entry point for malware. If the browser is not needed, it is safer to remove it.

Do not remove the local web browser if you use Citrix StoreFront sessions.

Instructions

By default, IGEL OS has a local web browser (Firefox) installed, even if no web browser session is configured. To remove the browser, follow these instructions:

  1. In the IGEL Setup go to System > Firmware Customization > Features.
  2. Uncheck the Local Browser (Firefox) feature.
  3. Click Apply.
  4. Reboot the endpoint device.
