What's up with spellfire in a post-spellplague world?

It does still exist, and it co-exist with the Spellplague. In fact, they seems to be the same thing seen from different sides of the coin. The Spellplague is just more darker in tone, and more virulent in its effects, but the two have the same kind of power.

During the years when Mystra was "dead", the Spellfire survived the destruction of the Weave by being stored within some powerful individuals. The one who had the most Spellfire within herself was the Simbul (that's why she went nuts in the end), but other Chosen of Mystra, such as Elminster, Laeral, Larloch or Manshoon, also had a lot of Spellfire within themselves.

After the Second Sundering and Mystra's return, the Spellfire returned to normal. And yes, it still co-exist with the Spellplague.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

get creative - why not have "spellplague-fire" :P - a combination of both caused by the conjunction of a spellfire wielder and a spellscar

I would try to get my hands on the 2nd edition Volo's Guide to All Things Magical or the 3rd edition Magic of Faerūn suplements.

In those there are rules about spellfire.

In 5th edition I would probably use the Warlock class to describe an Spellfire wielder.
