Not much new from a webmaster perspective, but the beta includes pop-up killing, auto form-filling, and some other fun things. :)
[It's a beta, so things may change between now and the final version. Let us know what you think at toolbar-beta at google.com though. ]
Here's why I think it would be a good idea for Google to spread the wealth to us Mozz people: we're the early-adopters and trend setters. If Google wants to be identified with pushing the envelope on web technologies, then wouldn't it make sense to try to appeal to the people who lead the wave and teach others what's new on the web?
A note about pop-ups: With Mozz I only get popups on one site: The New York Times. (Okay, I don't get out much...) But they're using Java to overcome popups and Flash to overcome the "image" blocking feature. I hope the next version of Firebird/Mozzila provides the means to block Flash or any other media file for that matter--not just images. Or, if Google is seeking to get ahead of the browsers on features that take the headaches out of surfing, perhaps they could find a way to help us block those other media before the browser folks do. That's my $.02.

I don't know if this is what you need but there is an extention for Firebird/Mozz that replaces flash objects with a button you must click in order to play the animation.
I use it. Damn Flashy Objects ;-)
I just encountered some buggy behavior... It involves highlited words increasing in size, and continuing to increase in size if you click highlight off and then back on again. It doesn't always happen, but seems to happen in titles, maybe in H1 tags? not sure... and hope this helps
PS - I can give specifics on recreating this, but didn't want to post urls, or search words.
