Great!  The directions on: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTSPLocalAppsJaunty got
me through the task of setting up firefox as a localapp.  The directions
include setting up other apps as well.  I'd recommend not making the
experimental chroot (steps 1 and 2) as it makes things more difficult.  You
might want to check out installing Firefox 3.5 as needed, though.  My
server's a bit messed up due to some other issues right now, but that page
was very helpful.

As I mention on the page above, you know firefox has opened up in the local
terminal because in the title bar of the window it will end saying something
like: ltsp 23 or whatever the address of the client is.  Good luck!
