    Like ordering from a Mexican menu on your 1st visit, it can be confusing. Same with a new browser like Firebird. Thus BlackDiamond! Link>

    Black Diamond is a Moz.org project to create a distrubution of Mozilla Firebird with many of the popular extentions added. I comes as a self-extracting zip file. No need for plugins with this Mozilla Firebird 0.7 package. It does a registry search for all available plugins. Pre-installed is a popular theme (ie skin) and 7 or so of the most popular 'extensions' like tabbed browsing, a must have for moderators jumping from post to post! (i think there are about 114 available).

    Just d/l and unzip! Enable all Java applets (under tools>options). See the following for a link to the main Firebird site for more helpful links!

    I just downloaded black diamond and it seems to work better than regular firebird. (could be my imagination). But I could't get some plugins to install on regular firebird but they seem to work on the black diamond version

    Yup. BD is a Nov 7th build and will stay so till its updated. If u d/l FB zip u get the most recent nighlty build (unless u dig deeper and select an older build).

    I think the BD version got lucky . . . the forum werd is that it is a favorite right now for stability.
