How to always launch Firebird in a new window

I converted Patrick to Firebird recently.  Firebird 0.7 came out this week, and I mentioned a peeve of mine was that it reuses its window when launching URLs.  To which Patrick said:

To always launch Firebird in a new window, put this stuff in your user.js file.

 user_pref("advanced.system.supportDDEExec", false);
user_pref("browser.always_reuse_window", false);

If you haven’t come to enjoy the wicked fast speed and elegant simplicity of Firebird, now is your chance.

Better yet, you can install the Tabbrowser Extensions and configure it to launch URLs in a new tab.
