    I run Linux at home and at work. When I'm at home, I like to be able
    to ssh to work and have the firefox window appear on my home machine.
    That works fine, but then I cannot launch a local instance of firefox.
    When I try, my work computer launches firefox instead.

    I had the same problem with mozilla at one point. With their latest
    releases though, I was able to have mozilla run from my work and home
    computers simultaneously.

    This bugs the hell out of me. Does anyone know how I can use firefox
    the way I need?

    p.s. I tried to launch firefox from work after starting it from home
    and I got the following before it crashed:

    X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
    Major opcode of failed request: 20 (X_GetProperty)
    Resource id in failed request: 0x613027
    Serial number of failed request: 824
    Current serial number in output stream: 824
