hehe, yes, it should. it's a mac-specific bug.
WorksForMe using Firebird/Mac/2003-05-16 (0.6).
heh, okay, thought i was going crazy there, but i've got more detailed reproduction instructions. (home works fine for the first window that comes up which is probably why it works for you guys.) having set a different homepage: 1. launch firebird 2. close initial browser window/close all browser windows 3. open new browser window 4. hit home button or select home menu item i swear i'm not making this up :)
Confirmed using Firebird/Mac/2003-05-16 (0.6) following the steps in comment 4.

I am experiencing this problem with the Windows version of the official Firebird 0.6 release, i.e.: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6" This means it actually isn't a Mac-only bug. :-)
what are your steps to reproduce on windows? i use firebird on windows as well and haven't run into this bug there. (and obviously, you can't close all firebird windows on windows without it quitting, so my steps to reproduce won't work.)
OK, I just figured out what I did on Windows to get this behavior. I had removed bookmarks.xpt from the components directory (don't ask, experimenting...), which didn't seem to have any effect at the time. Copying bookmarks.xpt back into the components directory makes the problem go away. Is that a clue to what could be happening in the Mac world since the symptoms are the same?
reassigning mac bugs, sorry for the spam.

In the first window that opens at the startup, The Home-Button and the links in the toolbar work without any problems. When opening a second page, the Home-Button leads not to the given URL, instead it leads to http://www.mozilla.org. Links in the Toolbar don't have any effect in this second window!
there's a workaround: if you close all browser windows, the first window you open will be busted (this bug as well as bug 206752 occur), but if you open another browswer window (while this busted one is open) the new window works properly.

Fixed 20031024 Firebird/0.7+ (see bug 223331). Needs to be set as fixed or duped to that bug.
