Oh, when I mean a server, I mean I work in a server, that is , it has no X windows system, so I cannot install firefox.

    One long-shot alternative is to run Firefox within a virtual X display, like xvfb provides.

    Another, even more long-shot alternative would be to try to compile Firefox without its display components.

    I never tried either, as I have a dedicated machine that runs just Firefox for automation.
