I believe the root powers have been enabled and I don't know how to turn them off. Here are the conditions that make me think they are on:
- I booted and signed in as a non-root user.
- I started firestarter and had to type my password.
- I started terminal and got the firestarter process number.
- I shutdown firestarter by closing it's window and went immediately to top and tried to kill the firestarter process, but top said that process didn't exist, so I assume it really didn't exist.
- I tried to start firestarter again, but it didn't prompt for a password. I shutdown firestarter several times after this, but it never asks for a password.
It doesn't make sense that I would need to type a password to sign into a user account, then type it again to run an appliation. I mean, how would I get in in the first place?
Does this mean I am logged in as root then when I turn on firestarter? If so, since it is not requesting a password when restart it in the same session, does it mean I am logged in as root in some way?
