    I really hope I'm posting this question to the right NG here. Basically,
    I'm trying to find out the functional difference(s) between Mozilla (the
    browser portion) and Firebird. Why would I want to use Firebird instead of

    Any help is appreciated.

    MozillaFirebird is cuter, smaller, faster, better.
    Also shinier, better smelling and just plain nice!

    I should know, I use both.
    Actually, I rarely use mozilla (proper), since firebird
    does all I want, except I miss the composer.
    I especially like many of the available extensions for
    firebird: I couldn't live without adblock, nuke-image,
    and flash-click-to-view. Great stuff.

    I'd disagree. Firebird is a major PITA.
    Hem. I've wondered what the point of adblock is. The ads still
    download and display, then they disappear and ruin the page's aesthetics
    in the process.

    THIS >>-------------------->>^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    is the point.

    The kinds of ads I'm talking about appear on
    web pages where aesthetics play a very minor rĂ´le.
    I particularly hate any that move/blink/thrust
    or otherwise distract my eye.

  5. To each his own, its my default browser.
    I've never used adblock. I do use Flash click to view, to get rid of the
    annying flash ads jumping around, and I wouldn't be without it. I also
    set animated gifs to loop only once, which is enough to let me know a
    gif is animted, and the it stops bothering me.

    I'm curious, you call FB a PITA, but give no specifics as to why. Its a
    little hard to discuss a problem if you don't let us know what it is.

    I became curious as a result of this post an downloaded Firebird and
    installed it. It works fine so far, however I detected trouble with the
    print function. Firebird would not allow me to print certain pages.
    That a known bug?
