There are many things you could clean up. The package cache (depends on
distro), The logs (It is better if you use logrotate to automate this).
The /tmp however need not be cleaned. /tmp is a tmpfs that works from swap
and memory. So you need not bother about that. You can clean up through
mozilla. You may also clean up .bash_history. This too, I think has a size.
It rotates once it reaches a size (Typically 1000 lines). Run an updatedb so
that your locates are zippier.
