    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What do you mean by "remotely"? Do you mean you are in one place and the system where you want to run FF is elsewhere? If so, then there are two ways. One is to ssh with the -X (X11 passthrough) from your local machine to the remote system, and then start FF on the remote system - the output will show up on your local system (I do this all the time). The other way is to enable VNC (Virtual Network Computing) on the remote system, and connect to the console, or a virtual console (GUI) on the remote system from your local one. My preference is for the first option - it is more secure.

    Ok... ?

    What is your local system? Is it Linux, or Windows? Step one: can you connect to the remote system using ssh (command-line from Linux, use Putty if from Windows)?
