This causes 1) The old entries to break. 2) Clutter and confusion. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install some version of Firefox. (ie: 0.9.0) 2. Install another version of Firefox (upgrade) (ie: 0.9.1) Actual Results: There are now two enteries (or more depending on your upgrade cycle etc) displayed in the Add/Remove programs control panel. This causes 1) The old entries to break. 2) Clutter and confusion. Expected Results: The old Add/Remove entry(ies) should have been purged from the registry so that only the latest entry exists. I've replicated this issue on Win2K and WinXP (Home & Pro). THis prolem has existed in all versions of Firefox that I've installed since 0.8.9 (IIRC that was my first) up to 0.9.3 which I upgraded to this morning. I'm very sorry if this bug has already been listed but I was unable to search the bug db to see if this was already found and submitted as our corporate firewall doesn't like something in your search process/pages (tried multiple).
