I installed Mozilla, Firefox, and Thunderbird from tar.gz into /usr/local.
I'd like to know what permissions I should set. I'm tempted to do this (workstation, not home network, dial-up connection):
owner: root rwx
group: group1 rwx ("group1" has another name and includes root and me as user)
1.But is this set of permissions an obstacle if I need to install an extension which downloads and installs on its own -- there's no other way I don't think.
Is this impossible on a mail client?
In other words does the rest of the world need any permission on a browser or email client.
2. Is it dangerous or stupid to include me as user in a group which includes root as superuser?
Thanks from a learning newbie -- or maybe I shouldn't have jumped on this forum, and should stick to the Newbie forum, please let me know.
