Well guys....seriously! I am Impressed with Firebird!!!......I wasnt able to figure out the executable file as there were 3-4 files with the name starting with Mozilla......However, this is the best browser I've seen for linux....faster than opera, Mozilla sure rocks!..However, I'm yet to test it with different far it does feel great...LQ seems like a brand new site with this one!!

I am however getting a small error on launching Mozilla

Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate loadable module in module_path: "",

Can someone suggest me what to do to cure this error?

I downloaded firebird 0.7 almost 2 weeks ago and it's great, working flawlessly. Now I'm not sure if Opera is still my # 1 browser.

There is another issue with firebird this time....It says that it cant open a new instance with the same profile name (default). This is not fact none of the other browsers need to be given a different profile name everytime a new instance is to be opened!

Is there any way to get over this?

instead of trying to run the executable again, try "Control+N" for a new browser, or "Control+T" for a new tab. (Inside the open Firebird window, that is).

I'm not sure why you can't run 2 instances on one name at one time; there must be a reason, but I don't know what it is.

Hope that helps
