it is optional, when you use the installer.

Mozilla is focused on making an internet suite, its the purpose of its existence.

if you wish a quick GUI (mozilla's GUI on fast computers can be just as fast as a native GUI) just use k-meleon.

if you want a good email app, use euroa, netscape messenger (4.x) or even Outlook (ofcourse, with scripting disabled, and file extensions enabled). i'm sure someday someone will come along and write a frontend for mozilla's email app using a native toolkit.

same goes for composer.. just use dreamweaver. there are god knows how many wysiwyg editors for windows.
