Alternating between 2 web browsers as the same user = home dir gets messed?
Kernel 188.8.131.52, Slackware 12.0
I, user john, with home dir /home/john_dir, login as john, always running the xfce4 desktop, and run Mozilla Firefox. Some other time, I again login as john and run the Seamonkey web browser. Or, maybe, I, john, am running the two browsers at the same time.
As a result, what happens with directory /home/john_dir ? If I am a person who likes to do some settings not in the GUI but by editing the files user's home dir directly (those begining with a period), won't I find this dir to be a real mess?
And what is the way out? Any suggestion would be welcome. Thanks for reading.
