Eclipse freezing on loading workbench

When attempting to launch eclipse remotely when forwarding X11 via SSH, the eclipse splash screen will load, ask me which directory to use as my workspace, then continue loading until the bar is about 75% loaded and then it just stops. I've read about issues similar to this that seem to have something to do with firefox, but any changes I've made (short of removing it completely, have not tried) don't seem to have affected my ability to run it. Eclipse 3.8

mint@mint ~ $ ssh -Xl <user>

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Reinstall fixed. Still no clue why it was freezing. New version is superior anyway
