Try to start firefox directly, without putty.
Or start firefox from nohup, screen or tmux so that when the tty goes
away when your connection is closed, the application won't lose its
controlling tty. ie with the latest builds you can do:
xpra_cmd start ssh/username:password at serverhost:sshport/ --start=firefox

If you still experience issues, then maybe you're hitting this bug:
Please add your details there (OS, version, steps, etc.)
