I had one of the worst upgrade installations to Firefox than I've ever had. I had a second profile accidently created in Firefox 0.8, and unfortunately, 0.9 migrated the wrong profile. So I had to fish my way into the bookmarks editor to merge the correct bookmarks list into the new Firefox, and even with that, I have to find all the extensions & themes and install them manually.

Since I installed each version of Firefox in a new folder, I've noticed that you can't launch Firefox 0.9 while 0.8 is running (or vice versa.) If you try, you get another window of whatever version is already running.
