Mozilla Firebird presents a a fast and convenient new way to browse the
web - now you can open several pages in one window in separate browser
tabs. Open links in the background while you read a web page,
then continue to the links when you're done - pages are available when
you need them, making the web feel faster even over slow connections.

recent years. Mozilla Firebird shields you from unwanted popup
advertising. It also gives you control to allow certain sites to open
popup windows, if required to operate.
