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
       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?

Just as an aside, how about switching to Seamonkey? Back when Firefox brought out release 29, I didn't like what they did to the user interface, and made the switch. Seamonkey is another fork of the original Netscape code which preserves a lot of the original look and feel, as well as (for me) reliability.
