FYI - this is not a "bug"... it's a design feature. I didn't design it this way, the people that wrote the Seamonkey installer did. The same function exists in the seamonkey installler. Eventually we won't need to do this, hopefully once we get a better extension install system in 0.9.

People should NOT be installling the firebird executable alongside other executables. That's just asking for trouble.

In the case of the seamonkey installer, the dialog is so poorly worded that there's a 50% chance you'll click the wrong button and delete everything. In Firebird I think these chances have been reduced through clearer wording.
