I'm running firefox 1.0.2 but in my add/remove menu all the previous versions of firefox are still there, same for thunderbird. Is it safe to remove these or should i just leave them alone?

You should remove these using the add/remove programs function. You will not loose your personal settings, which are stored separately from the two applications.
For your information, Mozilla always recommends uninstalling older versions before installing a new one.

Perhaps the best thing would be to remove all versions and reinstall afresh.
