Is it safe (if you take out the privacy concerns) to leave a browser window open.

For example, if I visit Facebook quite a bit within a day, and don't care to keep loggin in, but need to leave for an hour or two, is ther any danger of just leaving the browser open to this page (or any page, obviously ones that I know don't contain malware/viruses, etc)??

Can someone gain access to your system by you doing this? I have a dedicated cable Internet connection, and do run Firewall and AV software...

I've forgotten I'd left some Firefox pages open for hours on Yahoo, AudioKarma.org, Dvorak.org, etc, and I've never had a problem.
