The answer is: maybe.  There's nothing which stops PostgreSQL from
being faster, and likewise there is nothing that stops it from being
slower.  YMMV.

Your route should be:
 * migrate most speed-demanding part to PostgreSQL
 * benchmark it, trying to emulate real-world load.
 * if it is slower than Firebird, post it here, together with EXPLAIN ANALYZEs
   and ask if there's something you can do to speed it up.
