hi Xavier

oBrowser is built out of chromium embedded framework (typically called CEF for short)

in config.json in the studio folder, there is a section for oBrowser, and withoin that a section for cefSwitches

in my example have none

    "obrowser": {
        "cefSwitches": [

        "clearCacheWhenLoaded": true,
        "clearLocalStorageWhenClearingCache": false,
        "defaultHtmlcontrolsFolderInDataFolder": false,
        "htmlcontrolsFolder": "",
        "locale": "en-GB",
        "logSeverity": 99,
        "messageTimeout": 60,
        "remoteDebuggingPort": 5989,
        "useLayeredViewsMacOS": false,
        "useOmnisTraceLogForConsole": true

however, I was trying to do some cross site stuff and when talking to Omnis support, they gave me some settings to try (per below)

so, I might suggest you start looking for CEF switches, of which I’ve given some samples.    I didn’t do an extensive gooogle search, but this seemed ot show the code for some


the other think that strikes me is the option in the oBrowser section above

 "locale": "en-GB",

and a google search of that yeilded this web site where the person talks about german.   https://magpcss.org/ceforum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17672

I have not tried any of this.        However, its what I’d start looking at since I know oBrowser is a wrapper on Chromium embedded and it responds to some of the config parameters consistently with chromium embedded.

hope that gives you a place to start.
