I think that if you fire up firefox from inside ssh, it tries to run

Carlos, I know you know better, so I'm assuming you somehow tangled uo
that sentence. What was it you REALLY wanted to say.

I think you got two concepts conflated.

ssh client is the (local) machine, where you sit.
ssh server is the other (remote) machine where firefox runs.

X Server is the (local) machine, where you sit.
X Client is the other (remote) machine, where you launched firefox.

No part of firefox runs on the local machine. You don't even have
to have it installed locally.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
