do a search for persistent opt and persistent home this should answer you "where is my surf and cookie info stored" question.
As far as safe... The Only Safe Computer is turned off, with no network cables of any kind including phone wires, put this computer in a box and bury it in a location that you will never find your way back to...now its almost safe. J/K hehe
Now then all joking aside no firewall is ever a good idea imho, and yes there are firewalls available I am not the guy to ask about that though.
As for key loggers I suppose such a thing could happen to a linux machine, but I'd assume it to be more complicated to write a stealth installed keylogger, just be sure to disable scripting in FF, there is a very nice exension at the FF extensions site that prompts before running any scripts. Use same judgement for Java apps. Email is easy to lock down, us Sylpheed doesnt allow any sort of bunk to happen, just text and all binary is stored as attatchments.
Be sure to read the "Getting Started" guide that pops up everytime you load DSL it will answer a good deal of your questions as well.
