Hello, I am new to Linux and I am trying to have some fun with SSH just to learn how it works. I configured my laptop to run a SSH server on Ubuntu 20.04 and I'm trying to use X11 Forwarding with another 20.04 desktop and it has been partially successful because I can open images and some applications like Nautilus just fine, but when I try to open videos and text files using xdg-open they do not open in the client computer but in the server. I also get these kind of messages when trying to open apps like Firefox and Thunderbird:


X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
Unable to init server: Broadway display type not supported: localhost:11.0
Error: cannot open display: localhost:11.0

I enabled X11 Forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
I'm using authentication keys

Anyone knows how to solve this?
