SSH, firefox, and X



ssh to another host on the local lan. I tried running firefox from the CLI, it starts then crashes. Other apps work fine gthumb , xchat, emacs. I thought I might need some special incantation and have found several floating around but no joy. I have also noticed that when I 'exit' from the remote host after running say gthumb or attempting to run firefox that I have to ctrl-C or I don't get the prompt back, however if i log in and don't run any graphical apps it logouts without a problem. Makes me think I am forgetting an option but I have tried various things with firefox and i get the same results.

 Another thing about the logout hang is that it doesn't occur when I have used only emacs but if run gthumb or something similar then it will hang on logout and require a ctrl-c.

 I haven't to the best of my recollection ever tried running FF(or any other graphical app) on a remote host thru ssh, not generally what I use ssh for but I decided to try it out. Is it broken or have I not properly mixed my dog hair and bat poop. I get the following no matter what recipe I try:
