Please explain

Can you explain a little more. What distro are you using, and why do you need to sudo to use firefox. It should work for anyuser. If you need to add yourself to sudoers you need root access and then edit /etc/sudoers to add yourself to it (it explains how to use the file inside).

If you need sudo and its remotely controlled you wont be able to access firefox until you have root or are given permission.
