Mozilla question

I read it on the Mozilla page last week that you do not have to uninstall Mozilla before you install Firebird.

You should not need to remove your existing Mozilla installation. If you downloaded an official build of Firebird (from or it will be self-contained. It will not interfere with other installations. Just untar it where you want it to live (I have created a /usr/local/ directory for Firebird and Thunderbird) and execute it.
