[gobolinux-users] OpenSSH SOCKS difficulty

Maybe I'm just being incredibly thick, because I can't find a single
other instance of this problem on Google: I Compiled OpenSSH 4.5p1 with
OpenSSL 0.9.8b and it's working fine. I'm using asymmetric keypairs (ie
public/private key). I'm connecting with PuTTY 0.58 on a Windows XP
machine, and there's no problem connecting. However, if I try setting
up a dynamic port forward (-D 8080) and setting Firefox proxy to
localhost:8080, it comes up with blank pages. It does *not* say that
the proxy can't be found, *or* that the page can't be found, it just
receives a blank page, containing no HTML at all. I've tried a couple
of other versions of OpenSSH, and also tried connecting from different
computers. Do I maybe have a library missing, or am I being silly?
Everything I've read indicates that it should work fine out of the box...
