Your root will smell dirty with firefox presence :D perhaps in the bin, i mean [/recycle bin] would be better for FF.

Well, any one can call me a "sissy" or what ever, but I still only use
root privileges when absolutely necessary .
Actually it is not necessary very much, so for using 'su' and logging in as root when requested to is no problem.
After the initial installation of the system,doing any 'post install' configurations needed, and installing the packages I will be using, there usually never is any reason to be using 'su' or 'sudo', if that makes me a "sissy" so be it.
I would rather be a "sissy", then a "idiot" with a compromised system.
