Please clarify the situation:
In which directory does mozillafirebird.exe lie?
You mentioned that firebird is looking for xpcom.dll in c:\documents...
Where exactly?

Please delete the mozilla firebird folder and try it again with a nightly build
from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/nightly/latest-trunk/

WFM on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6b) Gecko/20031216
Firebird/0.7+

Not enough information to properly reproduce this bug...
Downloading and unzipping the nightly build and running the app worked normally..
