The standard mechanism until the 1.1 release of Firefox in August/September time frame this year is to uninstall Firefox (current installed version), and then install the newer version - i.e. not install over an existing installation of Firefox.

If you have any subsequent problems with Firefox it may be due to installing version 1.0.5 "over" 1.0.4 without first unintalling version 1.0.4.

Since 1.0 came out, I have been installing FF with out first uninstalling the older version.

I have had no problems, myself.

I'm sorry - I got a little confused over something I just read this AM.

With the Firefox 1.1 release, it will essentially allow you to update without downloading the entire release, i.e. incremental changes will get patched.

However, unless there are any other versions before 1.1, I plan to continue uninstalling the current installed release prior to installing the new one.

I simply uninstalled .4 and installed .5, everything went fine. All the profiles and extensions are saved so that you don't have to redo all that, there's really no reason not to do it the uninstall way except laziness.
