What steps should be taken to make Flamerobin compatible with OSX Mountain Lion?
I haven't found a dedicated Firebird admin tool for OS X 10.8, and Flamerobin is my only hope right now.

I'm very happy to report that I have managed to make Flamerobin work in Mac OS X 10.8.

All I had to do was download and install the lipo version of Firebird 2.5.2 for Mac OS X which contains client libs as fat lib (32 and 64 bits).

My quick testing has revealed a small problem though. When I select "Browse data" from the context menu I get this error message "Template "/Applications/FlameRobin.app/Contents/SharedSupport/sys-templates/browse_data.template" not found."

Alexei - did you get any further forward on this?
I've got a customer who is on Apple and I could do with getting him set up with
Flamerobin, but while I'm at home with Linux, the OSX variations need a little
more knowledge to navigate :(

Yes, in fact I did. I copied the missing files from the Flamerobin git repository to /Applications/FlameRobin.app/Contents/SharedSupport/sys-templates/ .
