    I've been searching for a way to uninstall mozilla firefox but there's no uninstall and I can't find it in the add remove either. This didn't help
    http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/edit#profile A bunch of gobbledy goop for me. I want to update firefox. Can I just install the updated version without uninstalling old?

    Thanks,
    Marianne

    I've already tried what you suggested. The profile folder is empty there's no unstall in the add remove in windows control panel. I cannot remember how I originally installed firefox so I can't go that route. I guess it was installed the beginning of last year. My question is how do I get rid of firefox and install an updated version. Will simply dumping into the recycle bin cause a problem. There is no uninstall program for firefox anywhere in my computer and the profile folder is empty.

    What version of Firefox do you have? The newer versions will update over an existing one.
    Click on Help> Check for Updates and follow the prompts.

    If you mean Firefox 1.5.0.4, just run the automatic update.
    If 1.0.4 and you can't uninstall it from Add/Remove, then download the installer for 1.5.0.6 and run it.
