    Default New releases of Mozilla Firebird and Mozilla Thunderbird

    Just a heads up to you that Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.1 is out now.

    Firebird is a browser and Thunderbird is the new stand alone mail/news client. They seem good so far to me.

    Okay ... back again

    Wee problem: I need to create a new profile for FireBird. I tried MozillaFirebird.exe -p in a command line, and the browser just opened up without offering me the option of creating a new profile.

    I know something is not quite right as my downloaded extensions have vanished, and when I downloaded one again it installed OK but is not listed under Extensions after restarting FB ?:|

    Is my lack of a new profile behind this? And how do I create a new profile when using the -p doesn't work?

    Thanks

    That is rather odd, maybe you've found a bug The -p worked in the previous version.

    Fixed it!

    No JM, I didn't have Firebird open at the time, however after exiting Firebird a quick peek in Task Manager showed MozillaFirebird.exe still listed in Processes. I killed the process (why hadn't it politely let go itself?) and tried MozillaFirebird.exe -p again and this time managed to only get the title bar of Profile Manager to open which wasn't terribly helpful. Decided to delete the directory, reboot the PC and then extracted a fresh copy of Firebird. The switch worked this time .

    Firebird.exe must of still been running the first time I tried this even though I had closed the program down several minutes earlier. Nevermind - all done now.
