Hi Jonathan,
Thank you for your reply. I am using Libreoffice on Microsoft Windows 10
and always update Libreoffice when one becomes available. I have seen
comments that say Java can be a problem, if you moved over to Firebird does
this remove Java. These are questions being raised by someone who loves to
experiment but does not have a clue when it comes to programming, I leave
that to the experts.
If I continue to develop my database(s) and a change from HSQLdb to
Firebird takes place what effect might that have?

1.  Is Base being supported or is it dead in the water.

Base is, and will continue to be supported.

The embedded database engine is in the process of changing from HSQLdb
to FireBird. This change has caused some users to be confused, and think
that the Base component is going away.

I am trying to assemble a small database but wonder should I continue if
it is not being supported.

Spend some time thinking about which database engine you want to use.

Base can be used both as a database front end, or as combined front
end/database engine.

I don't know Base well enough to answer the rest of your questions. :(
