The mozilla build from 5/15 has an issue with the installer, using the linux self-extracting installer. If the custom option is used, and a directory such as /usr is select (by action or accident) the installer will properly install to the /usr directory. However, if the user realizes the mistake and reruns the installer (so that it may remove the previously installed files) instead of only removing the files that the installer installed, the installer removes EVERY FILE AND DIRECTORY UNDER THE INSTALL point. This has serious consequences for those who accidently select a directory such as /usr or /usr/local Fortunately, it only erased my local MP3 collection and my /usr/bin directory before I stopped it (it was taking FAR too long..)
