Hello everyone, just wanna ask simple question : is there any chance to delete all widgets on dashboard or restore Dashboard GUI to it's original state? coz I'm not sure I did something wrong on the dashboard but I failed to delete some widgets; like thermo and installed packages widgets are stuck (the 'x' sign doesn't work). I don't wanna reinstall my pfsense just to make it right again. Any clue or enlightment would be very very appreciated. thanks.

Very dangerous territory to play around in if you are not experienced and if you don't have a configuration backup, but you can fix the problem by hand-editing the config.xml file in /conf. So before you do anything else, go to DIAGNOSTICS > BACKUP AND RESTORE and create a configuration backup.
The pertinent section looks like this in the file: (note that yours will be different as you have different widgets enabled)
The code deciphers as follows – you have the widget name followed by the column it resides in on the screen and then a value to indicate if the widget is "open" or "closed" (visible or hidden). The fields for a given widget are delimited by colons, and the widget entries themselves are delimited by commas. Fine the errant widgets, delete them from the <sequence>element key, and then save the edited file.
