I do something almost exactly the same, and it worked fine without
much extra wrangling. I am using OpenSSH 4.3p2 and OpenSSL 0.9.8a on
One difference is that I use a password to log in with PuTTY rather
than asymmetric keys... but if you can get a command line when you log
in with PuTTY, I can't see how that would affect the port forwarding.
I can post my PuTTY and Firefox settings tomorrow if you want. (My
sshd seems to be stock, with no extra command-line or sshd_config
options). I followed a simple tutorial that was very similar to this
Perhaps something in there will fix it for you.
