Description of problem:

Two problems about the same thing:

1. When the default web browser (firefox) is opened for first time it shows the browser default page. I don't know if this change is intentional but it doesn't point to CentOS welcome offline page (provided by centos-indexhtml) anymore but Red Hat online homepage instead.

2. The centos-indexhtml package is there but the information it provides doesn't match the expected visual style.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install http://mirror.stream.centos.org/9-stream/BaseOS/x86_64/iso/CentOS-Stream-9-20211014.0-x86_64-dvd1.iso
2. Login
3. Open default browser

Actual results:

The browser default welcome page doesn't shows the CentOS welcome page.

Expected results:

The browser default page shows the CentOS welcome page, as it has been provided in https://github.com/CentOS/centos-indexhtml/releases/tag/9.1.

Additional info:

Visual evidence is attached.

The artistic motif shown is from CentOS Stream 8 instead of CentOS Stream 9.

Comment 2 Alain Reguera Delgado 2021-10-19 01:06:52 UTC
Please consider https://github.com/CentOS/centos-indexhtml/releases/tag/9.2 instead. It adds Chinese translations and the latest visual style. The twitter link was also updated here.

Best regards.

Comment 3 Carl George 🤠 2021-11-19 05:05:11 UTC
I've opened a merge request to update the package to the 9.3 tag.

After installing centos-indexhtml-9.3-1.el9 the browser default page looks as expected. Thanks.
