Yes - an explicit "all files will be deleted" pop-up would be (as near as is possible to) foolproof. Even a computer novice knows that "all files deleted" is bad.

At the moment, the installer seems to remember my last chosen install directory (C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Firebird - I assume this isn't the default), so this is really a new-users-only, one-time problem.

Are there any plans to add "create shortcuts?" checkboxes (on Windows)? If so, I suggest Desktop and Start/Programs Menu be checked, and Quick Launch unchecked by default. I think this is generally the norm among (the better) Windows installers.
