    Hey,

    I'm wondering how I can launch an app - like firefox - so that the x11 forwarding will work. Currently, when I run /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox, it just launches the application on host machine and does not forward any of the GUI to the remote machine.

    Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?

    Thanks!

    You cannot.

    Mac OS X uses the Aqua interface, and it is not X11. Only X11 apps can be forwarded to remote machines.
