Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

I login a remote linux server by "ssh -X user at server". I try to run
Firefox in the server. But the local Firefox is opened.  I can tell this
because the Firefox has my local bookmarks and it can not access the
remote filesystem on the server but only my local filesystem. But if I
tried to run gedit or other X-window application, the gedit was not my
local gedit because I could access the remote filesystem.

When I use ubuntu 9.x, there was no this problem.
