Post subject:  Tip:: Don't run firefox as root

I was trying to update firefox so I thought that I would be a cleaver monkey and do a
sudo firefox

Oops it seems that firefox saves the ~/.mozilla/firefox/cookies.sqlite-journal and ./places.sqlite-journal on exit. So of course it saves the files with root permissions. easy enough to fix with a little.
 sudo chown mythtv:mythtv ~/.mozilla/firefox/cookies.sqlite-journal
sudo chown mythtv:mythtv ~/.mozilla/firefox/places.sqlite-journal.

Well I won't do that again.

Ah, thanks! I was wondering which files I'd managed to mess up the permissions on.
