Opening a local browser and a remote browser over X to Solaris 10, causes two browsers to opened locally
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20080716 SUSE/22.214.171.124-0.1 Firefox/126.96.36.199 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20080716 SUSE/184.108.40.206-0.1 Firefox/220.127.116.11 If I open a local browser on SuSE linux, then ssh into a remote Solaris 10 server with X forwarding enabled. When I issue the command /usr/bin/firefox, it causes another local browser to open with my default login page for my workstation. This browser is actually running on my local workstation not remotely and not X forwared. This only happens with Solaris 10 as the remote OS, and with the version of Firefox that ships with Solaris 10. Connecting to a remote version of SuSE, RedHat and Solaris 9 did not behave like this. They all behaved as expected and ran the application on the remote machine, and just displayed the result back to me over X. If I do not have a local copy of Firefox running when I ssh into the remote server, the behavior is as expected and the application runs remotely and displays over X to my local machine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.On my local machine run /usr/bin/firefox 2.ssh jump4.wmich.edu (X11 forwarding is turned on in /etc/ssh/sshd_config) 3.on remote machine run /usr/bin/firefox heynigc@ucc-112:~> ssh jump4 Last login: Tue Jul 29 13:16:39 2008 from ucc-112 -bash-3.00$ showrev Hostname: jump4a Hostid: 84ec853a Release: 5.10 Kernel architecture: sun4v Application architecture: sparc Hardware provider: Sun_Microsystems Domain: Kernel version: SunOS 5.10 Generic_127127-11 -bash-3.00$ /usr/bin/firefox --version Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168, Copyright (c) 1998 - 2007 mozilla.org -bash-3.00$ /usr/bin/firefox -bash-3.00$ ps -ef | grep firefox heynigc 2510 2457 0 13:53:15 pts/6 0:00 grep firefox Actual Results: Another Firefox window opens on my local workstation, with my local workstation preferences. Expected Results: Firefox runs on the remote server with the preferences fromt the remote server. I removed the Firefox installation that came with Solaris 10, and download the Solaris 10 version from contributed builds and the behavior was as expected.
I get the same behavior on Ubuntu 9.04. My desktop and laptop are both running this same versions of Linux and Firefox with Gnome 2.26.1: Linux grhp 2.6.28-13-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 2 07:57:31 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/2009060308 Ubuntu/9.04 (jaunty) Firefox/3.0.11 (Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu: canonical - 1.0) I do not need ssh's X11 forwarding as they're both currently plugged into the same 4-port switch. I'd wanted to open a session where I *was not* logged in to a particular server so that I could view some detail that changed based on login status.
