Mozilla doesn't work for user-profile
Newbie Alert! =)
I'm new to this forum as a posting member, although I've read a lot of useful tips here in my attempts to leave windows behind. Thanks for sharing all the time and information!
However, I couldn't find a topic dealing with my current problem. I'm probably just being thick, but anyway, here goes...
I'm only able to start Mozilla as root, which I realize is not a good idea when using it to surf the net. As a normal user, it doesn't come up.
Here's what I did:
I installed Slackware 9.1, logged in as root and fiddled around with the configuration (X, iptables, sane etc.) to get everything cosy. I started X and, among other tings, launched Mozilla 1.4 (comes with Slack9.1).
Then I created my user-account and logged into it. Mozilla worked fine at this point, but I couldn't install any plugins. So back to the root for installing mouse gestures and prefbar.
But after that, I wasn't able to get Moz going for the user. I tried to fiddle with the Moz-profiles, but to no avail.
Can anybody remove the tomatoes from my eyes? What am I overlooking?
Thanks in advance,
