Something that scares people of new Mozilla versions is that even though they unintall the old installed version, they get serious problems. Such as not being able to download files, Mozilla not starting at all, etc etc. Difficult to explain to somebody you recommended the browser that he has to go in the application data folder (that is hidden by default) to delete a certain file so the new version works. This also happends on MAC. Just helped somebody install the new version and he was not impressed when the browser didnt even start...
