Firefox 35 -no-remote on Fedora 21 (via SSH -X) just hangs

Firefox 35 opens on the local console for each of several machines all running Fedora 21 just fine. If I "ssh -X" from one machine to one of the others, then run "firefox -no-remote", the Firefox window does not open anywhere. Usually, the command just hangs. Once it crashed with the message, "###!!! ABORT: X_ShmPutImage: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation); 12 requests ago: file /builddir/build/BUILD/firefox-35.0/mozilla-release/toolkit/xre/nsX11ErrorHandler.cpp, line 157". In that one case, it offered to restart Firefox but the restart did not occur.

$ uname -a Linux 3.17.8-300.fc21.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Jan 8 23:32:49 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux $ rpm -q firefox firefox-35.0-3.fc21.x86_64

I tried to look for the error source here:

However it just gives a runtime error.

What technique makes it work? run: firefox -no-xshm

Does any infor come from ssh debugging?

systemA runs "ssh -X systemB", both are F21 with FF35. In the resulting session, systemA runs "firefox -no-remote" and gets no response, must INTR to recover. If instead, system A runs "firefox -no-xshm" or just "firefox", a new FF window from systemA opens. My objective is to open a new FF window from systemB, displayed on systemA.

What kind of SSH debugging do you have in mind?

Where can I report this as a bug? The Mozilla "support" site does not seem to offer a Bugzilla or similar system.

Not having seen an answer, I presume it is a bug...
