Well, as far as I know, they have replaced Firebird by Firefox. So Firebird is no longer available.
As I used Firebird, ansd now Firefox, I could say Yes, it's pretty much the same thing.

Bye!

Firefox is simply the latest release in the Phoenix/Firebird line - they had to change the name twice for legal reasons - check below for the reasons:
