To enable root enter this in the shell:

Code:
sudo passwd root
That will then set a password for root and then you can use firefox normally (doesn't need to be started as root/sudo) and enter as login:
User: root
Pwd: the password you have entered above

Default thanks

Thanks for that i thought i had tried this........
But i will ensure i give it a go tonight.
What is really annoying, is that everything is supposed to be easy to set up but when i try nothing works. Being new to linux and not knowing the commands well, feeling like a blind man, its all frustrating. Makes me realise why windows has been so popular.
