Exporting X for firefox-1.0 really slow

I know this is maybe rather OT but I'm just wondering if there are others who 
shared the same experience.

When I tried to start firefox from a remote server (ie. ssh to the server and 
type 'firefox' at the console), firefox-1.0 starts really really slow 
compares to older version (ie. ver. 0.8). 

On a 100Mb LAN, firefox-1.0 takes about 1.5 minutes to load on my screen if I 
start it from the remote server and then export the X back to local desktop. 
The same server and everything, firefox-0.8 takes only 3 seconds. 

After it starts, it works pretty find though, but just the start up time is 
really long. If I walk to the server room and start firefox-1.0 there, it'd 
start just fine (no slowness in startup). 

Anyone experiencing this?
