During installation, if Setup installs ontop of a previous Mozilla installation folder, it should be smart about removing the previous Mozilla's windows registry entries (both for the install and uninstall keys). For example, say a machine already has mozilla 0.7 installed, the following would be the windows registry keys created by the installer for the installer: HKLM\Software\Mozilla.org\Mozilla\0.7 (en) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla (0.7) If Mozilla 0.8 is installed to the same folder path as Mozilla 0.7, then the Windows registry would now have: HKLM\Software\Mozilla.org\Mozilla\0.7 (en) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla (0.7) HKLM\Software\Mozilla.org\Mozilla\0.8 (en) HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla (0.8) Setup needs to be able to detect that it installed ontop of Mozilla 0.7 and remove its obsolete keys. If it installed into a folder different from Mozilla 0.7, then it should not remove Mozilla 0.7's windows registry keys.
Patch will be attached to bug 66480 to eliminate duplicating patch attachments.
