    The newer builds shouldn't change anything if you've installed the plugins into your profile directory (as opposed to the application directory). If you have plugins installed into the application directory you'll have to reinstall them. Go here for the extensions if you need 'em .

    I couldn't find where to create a profile so put the extensions in the application directory. Any ideas where to do this?

    From http://zdnet.com.com/3000-2356-10208564.html:
    Note: You should create a new profile for Mozilla Firebird 0.6. To create a new profile, start Mozilla Firebird by running MozillaFirebird.exe -p and click the Create Profile button. If you don't want to delete your old profile and are willing to incur the risk of new bugs, you should at least delete your profile's downloads.rdf file. You must also delete your old Mozilla Firebird directory rather than just overwriting the files there. Not doing so will result in problems and you should not file any bugs on Mozilla Firebird unless you've first done a clean install and tested on a new profile. As Mozilla Firebird stabilizes more this will not be necessary, but until then, these steps are absolutely necessary.

    Mozilla Firebird is a very cool browser...the reason why I have not made it my default browser yet is because installing the Java Plugin and is a pain! I still haven't figured it out til now. Did you encounter this problem too?

    Nope... In Windows you run the JRE installer and the plugin installs automatically.

    In Linux you run the JRE installer and it asks for the path of your plugin directory and it installs.

    So when you launch a new tab is there a way to get it to load the current web page that you launched it from (ie. like when you press Ctrl-N with IE)?

    If you get Tabbed Browser extensions, you can Duplicate tab. Or you can go to the address bar and hit Alt + Enter.
