Remote Admin Window Auto Closes Since Upgrade

I was able to access my opensuse 11.0 server remotely using the firefox browser (IP plus port 5801). There were mouse trails on my terminal’s browser window, but the connection worked fine.

Immediately following the upgrade to 11.1 I can no longer access the server remotely from the same terminal using any browser. The opensuse remote desktop loads in my browser, and a dropdown control (which is new with 11.1) appears with all of the users defined on the server. Then the connection immediately terminates and firefox informs me that the “remote side closed connection”

My guess is that the implementation of the dropdown control has somehow been done in a way which “kills” my connection. Any suggested workarounds?
