Probably only need a log out/in.

I'd think the entire GUI system would probably need a restart since Mesa is a fairly integral part of the graphics system. Not sure if just a logout/login is adequate as X (or Wayland) continues to run to present the greeter. I could be wrong there.

I have added a new service which starts a second httpd instance in fedora 19. The pid of the process is stored in /run/http-xxx directory, and my problem is that this directory disappears after each reboot.

How can I stop the system from deleting this folder in /run?

I upgraded to fedora 20 from fedora 19 using fedup. Everything went well except for some weird issues with Thunderbird. The latter is now giving me a pile of weird permission errors and disk space errors. There is 250GB free space, so I know that is not the problem. Obviously this has something to do with the permissions on the thunderbird folder, but I do not have the knowledge to rectify the problem.

Please suggest how to proceed?
