    Mozilla Firebird is a free, open-source and cross-platform web browser for Windows, Linux, MacOS X and other operating systems. It is small, fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web browsers, such as the tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up windows.

    Download

    Enjoy everyone!!! :D

    That's a zipped version of Firebird 0.7.

    Here's the same thing with a full-fledged installer...
    URL=> Firebird 0.7 setup.exe

    If you have a previous version of Firebird [or Phoenix] installed, then you should...
    1) Copy the following from the profile directory at Windows\application data\

    userChrome.css
    userContent.css
    user.js
    cookies.txt
    cookperm.txt

    2) Then...
    Remove the old profile, remove old firebird
    Install new FB 0.7
    Run new FB 0.7
    Quit new FB 0.7

    3) Copy backedup files from step #1 to the new profile.

    4) Restart FB 0.7. Re-enter homepage location & any desired extension in FB >Tools>Options.

    Thanks...

    That is quite a long thread. I will try to read through it this weekend and post a little. What I can say right now is that I was apprehensive when I first tried Firebird, but after a few hours with it tweaking it to my style I have never looked back. The only time that I use IE now is when I download critical updates and service packs from M$.
