Speed and Standards

Firebird is built on Mozilla's Gecko technology - giving you industry leading standards compliance and speedy page display.


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.

Popup Blocking

Popup advertising is one of the most annoying things to hit the web in 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.

Integrated Search

Mozilla Firebird makes finding things easy. The built in Google bar provides convenient access to the best search engine on the web. Simply click in the Google bar or press Ctrl+K, type some words and press Enter.

Efficient Navigation

Details are important to us. Sometimes it really is easier to navigate with the keyboard. Mozilla Firebird lets you open links by simply typing some of the text in the link - no mouse necessary.


Automatically download files to your Desktop or another location with the new AutoDownload feature. Downloading becomes much simpler without windows popping up asking you where to save, etc.
