Firefox Won't Work as a Normal User
When I try to launch Mozilla Firefox by typing 'firefox' as a normal user, nothing happens and I am returned to the command prompt. Lately I have been launching it as root, which works fine, by typing:
'kdesu -c firefox'
However, I understand that running GUI programs as root can be dangerous. If this is true I would appreciate some help on how to fix this problem.
I did have the same issue with Mozilla Thunderbird, so I started to run that as root too. The trouble is, I have now discovered that Thunderbird does work as a normal user, so how (if this is necessary) do I transfer the mail and account settings in my root account into the normal user account?
