No, but isn't firebird just the best?!?!?
I would try using the google and altavista image search maybe?

Hi SDP2006!

When you start Mozilla Firebird (0.6.1), go to Help > About Mozilla Firebird and ṿila! Hope this helps!

And cg9com: couldn't agree with you more! :thumbsup:

How come pages render differently in Firebird as compared to Mozilla? Things that look "right" in Mozilla don't always in Firebird.

Firebird is built from the trunk, while Mozilla is built from stable milestones. The means that sometimes there is a slight difference between the code bases.

Thanks liorean! I was just wondering because it seemed to handle my site I posted the other day differently than Mozilla or Netscape.

If it aint broke, don't fix it. Why mess with something like Mozilla that works so well?

Firebird above, Moz below:
1 2 3 4 5 6
| | | | | |
\---1 \---2 \---3 \---4 \---5
So, you see, moz forks out a new branch of the development at each major release, while fb always builds from the trunk. That means that either fb or moz will always be a bit behind the development, and fb won't be forked out so that the code can be stabilised for each release they make, while moz freezes checkins just to be able to straighten out bugs.

However, most of the time the changes on the trunk doesn't affect any trunk build negatively. Generally it's the opposite, unless there's been regressions in the rendering or parsing engines.

Either way, we are still dealing with 2 browsers superior to ....
you know that other one. :rolleyes:
