If you are talking about using a Firebird database created under Windows
on a Firebird on Linux, then you will need to backup the database under
Windows and restore it under Linux. Otherwise, for example indexes on
(var)char fields with collations might not work correctly.

If you are just talking about a client application connecting to a
Firebird server on Windows, the OS of the client is not important.
