I am convinced this is overkill, but it works nicely. (First install the policycoreutils-sandbox package:- yum install policycoreutils-sandbox) mkdir /tmp/myweb ~/myweb sandbox -X -T /tmp/myweb -H ~/myweb -t sandbox_web_t firefox Then you can download any content, setup bookmarks ... and the sandbox will not remove them when you are done. If you later run a command with the same sandbox homedir and tmpdir, the content will be there. (From Dan Walsh site) Just replace firefox with whatever eg. gftp, opera etc. The saved stuff will be in ~/myweb (Posting here in case you didn't see it in SL forum) Edit:- The -i flag. sandbox -X -t sandbox_web_t -i /home/user/.opera opera Copies the contents of the .opera directory into the sandbox. Probably not a great idea if passwords are not removed beforehand.
