Wouldn't it render your system root-vulnerable to some malignant

   of course, but I try to avoid URLs I don't know.

A URL you do know might possibly be owned (hacked into).

   the only one I really use is youtube, but anyway, I found a much
   better solution:
   - when I need sound, I use iceweasel (ffx version 52), and current
   ffx version (now 59) otherwise.
   Can anybody answer these 2 questions:
    - why, with ffx 59, the sound works for root and not for a normal user,
      even with pulseaudio?
    - why these damned firefox guys so obviously ignore the user's needs,
      and removed a feature wich worked from the origin to v52?

best regards,
