Run Firefox as 'spot'

August 21, 2013 — BarryK
I have added the option in the Login and Security Manager to run Firefox as user 'spot'.

"The FirstRUN Personalizaton that occurs at desktop initial start has an option to Run Internet Apps as Spot. [b]Question[/b] Understanding that this turns [b][u]ON[/u][/b] system features to support Spot, if I re-enter FirstRUN and uncheck the box, will FirstRUN undo the prior setup? (that is, "Will it turn OFF the features allowing Root to dominate?") I am wondering if FirstRUN can be used a toggle for this system feature. FirstRUN is a great simple to understand tool for new users. Everyone I have had use Puppy from CD/DVD boot understand this without any assistance. Thanks

"Ticking the checkbox does not turn on Internet apps to run as spot, it only causes the Login & Security Manager to run, which can then be used to turn on or turn off apps running as spot.
