FWIW, I've had few problems with remote Mozilla from Solaris and Linux
with some random stability issues on HP-UX. This was with Mozilla 1.7.2
and GTK1. YMMV.

Try starting a local mozilla with DISPLAY set to the long form including
hostname, forcing mozilla to run with a "remote" TCP X connection to the
local machine. That way, you can rule out if it's a problem with the
remoteness or some other configuration on the remote machine.
