[solved]firefox doesn't remeber settings as non-root

I've also noticed that firefox spams "CRITICAL **: unable to create file '/run/user/1000/dconf/user': Permission denied.  dconf will not work properly." a bunch of times when running as non root, can't figure out how to fix this

I haven't had any issues with Firefox.  Has it only been doing this for you recently?

Re: [solved]firefox doesn't remeber settings as non-root

Firefox doesn't use dconf.

How are you running Firefox as root? Did the problems start after you started running it as root, or before?

Also, why are you running your web browser as root anyway? That's a VeryBadIdea™.

I used sudo, I thought It might be a permssion issue so I tried it in sudo without going to any websites to see if the issue was still there, but I can't find out what permssions are missing.

Check the permissions on your profile folder in "~/.mozilla/firefox/...".  Try renaming it in order to force Firefox to create a new one.

that was one of the 1st things I try, Firefox remembers some settings but not others, it doesn't remember what plugins I have disabled.

It is really helpful if you explain what you have already tried together with the results.  It enables people to help you.

Which you didn't mention either!  How do you expect people to know these details if you do not tell us?

I deleted the plugins in ~/.mozilla/plugins and uninstalled mozplugger and nspluginwrapper
