QED.


The fact that your firefox command came immediatly back to a command prompt
should have been a clue that you are NOT executing firefox. You've
got something else in your path that starts and returns to a command prompt.

Except by the fact that a firefox window pops up and displays
"http://localhost"; to my local Apache page where ssh client is running, not the
one from the server.



run /usr/bin/firefox in your ssh terminal,
or better yet run
/usr/lib/firefox/firefox

And a firefox window opens locally. The one from the local machine, despite
being called inside an ssh session to another machine. This has been this way
since ever. There is a known switch to disable this feature. You find it,
because it is documented.

This Firefox window that opens displays in "file:///etc/hostname"

Telcontar.valinor

which is the local machine, the client machine.


Why don't you give up and recognize the truth? You are simply wrong. It is
absurd that you insist.

But if you insist, I will shoot a video. Just tell me what command you want me
to run to capture the video.
