Connecting to a different server for sshfs will be a challenge. The
reason for this is sshfs automatically mounted with LTSP5 local apps
support goes through the existing ssh tunnel used by X created upon your
ldm login. If you want anything different from this, it will be a
significant architecture problem that needs to be discussed on the
upstream ltsp-developer list.
BTW, how fast was starting firefox? It has been really slow for me on
first-run, but better on subsequent runs.
