It does NOT work that way for me. That's why.

I've tested on two different computers, one opensuse leap 42.2
the Other Manjaro.

Launching firefox and opening a file ALWAYS opens the file
from the ssh server. It never opens the file from the ssh client.

I don't have two opensuse machines to test with to see if this is
just
some basdardized opensuse feature. Nobody else compiles it that
way.

Would you like me to send you a movie Carlos?

to run the firefox instance on a remote opensuse machine:
ssh to remove box
firefox -no-remote
opening /etc/hostname returns hostname of remote box


this also works:

add

MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1
export MOZ_NO_REMOTE

to your profile.


Maybe John has that sort of stuff in his profile, that would explain why
his setup reacts differently. I can only confirm the behaviour Carlos
has described, even across widely varying openSUSE's. To get a remote
firefox, I had to use '-no-remote' which gives me a much slower
firefox, the host machine is also indicated in the windows
title "Mozilla Firefox <@office34>".

Exactly.

And it has been that way for ages. I found about this "feature" the
first time I tried, expecting to get the server machine Firefox, and I
had to ask here about this strange thing, and I was told that Firefox
works that way, and to use "-no-remote" to disable.
