The Mozilla installation does not overwrite the old binaries by default. The default install is to:
/usr/local/mozilla

The command "whereis mozilla" should show you the directories it is installed too.

When you run you will need to convert your profile. You can change where the shortcut points to by right clicking it and selecting properties.

I afraid that such overwriting process is dangerous...

Hope it solves your doubts. I wrote it for another user and it worked for him (and me).
