Sometimes I have firefox running on a computer and then I want to access the computer remotely and see what text is written there and I can't.

Would be nice to know how to see the screen remotely without having to kill the program...

For tasks like this, the "x11vnc" program might be useful:

I never used it myself, but the description sounds quite like what you are trying to achieve. Note, that this is not a VNC server providing a virtual X display, but a server that allows access to a real X display.
