Mozilla and Nautilus are completely separate programs, AFAIK. Installing or upgrading either of them shouldn't affect the other. The only possible problem I can see with what you want to do is if you have other installations of Mozilla. It is possible that one installation may clobber the configuration files (~/.mozilla) of another. However, in my experience, there are no problems as long as you upgrade to a more recent version and never "downgrade".
