Firefox works as Root --not as user


Any ideas on this one

If I'm logged on as Root Firefox can access Internet sites --no probs.

As User -- Doesn't get connected to any sites.

Also in both cases NO PROFILES menu appears --where can I get into the menu to set up a Profile

(kde Konqueror browser works fine -but I'd like to use Firefox as it is the best browser around --when it works).

Cheers

-K
