Actually, you can use X with no window manager at all.  It's weird and
awkward, but it works.

But you've already started tweaking your fvwm config.  That's how it
works.  In a couple of years yours will be just as ornate as ours.

BTW I recently learned that the way to control Firefox is to call it
Gecko in Style commands.  It's a PITA because it ignores the standard X
command line arguments such as "-geometry", tries to be "clever" about
placing itself, and uses its title as a message window.
Style Gecko IgnoreGravity,  !UsePPosition
seems to beat it into submission.
