Firefox now running as "superuser" after firecfg

Release 4.7 64-bit
Kernel Linux 5.4.0-1parrot1-amd64 x86_64
MATE 1.22.2

So I’ve been using parrot for some time now and I absolutely love it! However i do have one quick question, when i first downloaded and got the OS running I decided to configure Firejail mainly so I can browse safely, I used the “sudo firecfg” command, now when i open Firefox at the top of the widow it shows " Mozilla Firefox (Sandboxed or as root)" fast forward 1 month I update parrot is see that the firejail config was disabled, so i went ahead and enabled it again using “sudo firecfg” but now at the top of the firefox window it shows “Mozila Firefox ( as superuser)”.
Is this normal? I’m assuming seccomp is running in between my OS an my browser.

thank you in advance for taking your time to answer my stupid question :smiley:

Hey Swiftie :slight_smile:

while firefox is open run:

ps aux|grep 'firejail'

to see all processes with firejail and username running under at left.

my example output shows rtp username running firefox under firejail:
rtp 2434 0.0 0.0 4320 2656 ? S Jan27 0:00 /usr/bin/firejail /usr/bin/firefox
rtp 2437 0.0 0.0 4328 2548 ? S Jan27 0:00 /usr/bin/firejail /usr/bin/firefox

To see if any firefox instances are running as root try:
ps aux | grep 'firefox'| grep 'root'

to show processes containing lines w/both root and firefox… if you see none, you have no root firefox processes open.

Let us know what you find out and we can go from there.
