I assume you (like me) are using FBReader 0.8.4, because of its flexibility. The 0.8.14 version is significantly faster, but it does not have menus. It is possible to setup 0.8.14 as a replacement for MobiPocket Reader for DRM-free files, but it is complicated. See Update Settings for FBReader 0.8.14. You would need to modify the registry support and put all your DRM-free .prc files in individual .zip files, and in addition you would update ui.xml to use the "Times" font.

I have found that it is relatively difficult to unwind from 0.8.14 back to 0.8.4, and your 0.8.4 files may get deleted when you switch to 0.8.14. So at a minimum you should make a copy of _local/home/.FBReader on your Desktop computer. These will also give you clues about what to add to the 0.8.14 ui.xml, e.g. for your favorite font.
