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.
