this is just noob thinking and i didnt really know where to post this
but since there are firefox add ons and stuff that allow you to edit html, JS, cookies, etc. is there one to edit unix? if not would it even be possible to make an add on like that?
thanks in advance

My friend, welcome to the beauty of Linux!

The source is entirely editable, as long as you know how. This usually involved recompiling the kernel source from scratch. The latest kernel can always be obtained at the Linux Kernel Archives.

EDIT: I may have misread your post. Are you talking about a Firefox add-on that lets you edit your Linux distro? I would be VERY surprised if one existed. I am almost certain that's impossible, since giving a browser the capability to edit your OS would be a MAJOR security risk.

well i dont have linux and im not very knowledgeable about it so you totally lost me lol.
but what sparked my interest was the UNIX missions, where you navigate directories, and in firebug you can navigate (kinda) in the different stuff in DOM so i figured i would ask because i googled and didnt find anything about it a UNIX editing/directory traversal add on.

you confused as hell now? lol

btw yea im talking about firefox addons

Ahh, this makes more sense. Referring to the "cd" command?

Well, yea. It's probably possible to do this with an add-on. Not sure why you'd want this though. Two reasons:

1.) You should learn to use the commands if you want to continue learning
2.) It's not really that much of an inconvenience to type a few letters
