http://www.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/guide/get-started.html says: "If you have a previous version of Mozilla installed Before installing a new version of Mozilla, you should uninstall your previous version first. If you have a third-party extension installed, particularly the spell checker, you should also completely delete your Mozilla install directory before making a new install. Do not install over an old Mozilla version. Following the uninstall instructions in this document should not affect your profile data (unless your profile files are in a custom location)." The last section is too broad, because now it says that ANY custom location is affected by an uninstall.
