Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but when you downloaded Firebird, did
you copy the bundle icon from the disk image folder to your application folder,
and then drag the copied version to the dock? You didn't copy the icon to the
dock directly from the disk image, did you? :)

Doesn't mather, but forgive me my stupid answer ;-) 

A bit more detailed "steps to reproduce" then:
1) I copied the (bundle) icon to my browsers folder (/Applications/Browsers). 
2) Then I started Firebird from the finder at /Applications/Browsers
3) The Firebird icons appears bouncing in the dock (indicating it's loading)
4) Then the bouncing stops and an triangle appears below the icon (indicating 
it's loaded and active)
5) 1 or 2 seconds later the icon disappears from the dock
6) Now I only get the first message in my console, mentioned above.

I tried moving the the bundle to the /Applications folder and start it from 
there. Same result.

I did not move the bundle to the dock.

I got this version from the frontpage, say, a week ago. So I 
didn't trust it, and just now I downloaded an other copy. On the frontpage, 
it's identified as Mozilla Firebird 0.7 and the URL suggests version 0.7.1). 
Same behaviour, but the first bundle is 31.8 MB and this bundle is 27 MB. The 
finder reports for both bundles Version 1.4a.

Weird. Sounds like something's causing it to crash during loading.
Ok, couple more questions:
1. If you click and hold on the icon in the dock, then select "Show In Finder",
does it bring up the correct copy of Firebird in your Applications folder?
2. In the Library folder in your Home directory, drag the folder "Phoenix" to
the trash. Will Firebird start then? Your current profile may be corrupted.

Deleting the ~/Library/Phoenix does the trick. It's running now: my problem is

Great to hear! Your old profile must have been corrupted or just incompatible.
It's usually recommended to remove your old profile when installing a new
version of Firebird, because it's a new and rapidly evolving piece of software.
I just rescue my bookmarks and that's about it.

Looks like a dupe of Bug 205769
