Lets say I have firefox running on a server. Can I ssh into the server and display the firefox windows on the client? I don't mean open new windows or a new session from the client, rather I want to display and modify the 3 windows I left running on the server. Or would I have to use VNC instead?

SSH with X forwarding doesn't work that way...that is unless you use
To display and modify any programs that are open to the current user that is logged in via a graphical windows environment on the machine you would have to use VNC. I would suggest TightVNC.
