Don't use grids. You also could consider placing a
clientdataset/dataprovider between your query component and the
datasource component. Fetch data on demand.
There are plenty of free or low-cost data-access components available
for Firebird: UIB (free), ZEOS (free), IB Objects (low-cost or free
under trustware licence), ...
