The interesting part is that the actual firefox window with all buttons, menu, URL line and everything is visible for a very brief moment after which it disappears and you get the above mentioned error message.

One more note here:

Josh Boyer verified that it works perfectly on a local machine, my tests were done from a RHEL-6.1 x86_64 machine via ssh -X to the PPC box and thats when i got the error.

Thanks & regards, Phil

OK, seems that something with my local x server seems to be fubar, it works nicely for others over SSH.

Closing as notabug then and i'll investigate where my local x server issue comes from.

Thanks & regards, Phil
