I don't have any problem with these 2 sites. Maybe
it's your Java plugin that messes things up. Try
disabling it for a while (just comment out lines
in the java section in libmap.conf). I think 1.5.0
can still be very unstable.
As for running under root, I didn't mean in the
root login environment. Just startx as a user
then open xterm, type "su" (not "su -" or
"su - root"), enter pass and try firefox.
