I think I've found a hole!

I don't have X forwarding enabled and can see this by trying to run

I'm using the 643 kernel with everything updated. I'm not sure if this

This could be a serious problem and I want to be sure before putting it

You mention 3 different machines 'this box', 'work', 'sons box'. -
don't quantify any of them correctly. (which OSes do they run?)
Older ssh by default does 'X11Forwarding' (so firefox should
work). New version of ssh on FC3 requires '-y' option to do the same.
If you ssh into FC3 (from a different machine with older ssh) - you
can run firefox. If you ssh from FC3 into any other machine - you
need 'ssh -y' for it to work.
Note: this is ssh client side option.
