I have solved this part of the problem. The "BadWindow" error was just
temporary, it did not show up on successive tries.
But I do notice a strange behaviour. If I have a local Firefox instance
running, the remotely started instance attaches to the local instance.
This means that any requests fired from the remote instance are in fact
fired from the local instance. As the primary goal was to connect to
services only available in my mothers local network (the admin interface
of the router), I have to close all local firefoxes before I start the
Strange behaviour )-:
Thanks to those of you who replied.
