ssh -X from Ubuntu to an Ubuntu Server, on which I've installed X, x11-apps and Firefox. Running
xeyes shows the eyes, so I know that the X forwarding works. But when I try
firefox, nothing happens: no window pops up, and the terminal line isn't returned until I ctrl+C.
How to debug this? I don't have physical access to the server.
ps aux shows:
me 22016 1.0 0.8 53464 9076 pts/1 S+ 17:20 0:00 /usr/lib/firefox-10.0.2/firefox me 22018 0.0 0.0 0 0 pts/1 Z+ 17:20 0:00 [firefox] <defunct>
Update: After waiting for 8 min, a Firefox window popped up and worked fine, without lag or any other problems. So the new question is: why does it take so much time?
