    I installed firefox using apt-get install firefox

    But when I run firefox in tightvnc it gives me this error

    Error: Cairo does not yet support the requested image format:
    Depth: 8
    Alpha mask: 0x00000000
    Red mask: 0x00000007
    Green mask: 0x00000038
    Blue mask: 0x000000c0
    Please file an enhancement request (quoting the above) at:
    http://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=cairo
    firefox-bin: /build/buildd/libcairo-1.2.4/src/cairo-image-surface.c:155: _cairo_format_from_pixman_format: Assertion `NOT_REACHED' failed.

    How do I change that

    I see in tightvnc options a check box for 8-bit color but it was unchecked

    EDIT: vncserver -depth 16 :1 command fixed it
    Thanks donvito
