Hi,lets try it this way if i download F/F5 and put in new folder does that mean
that when get the option of where i want to put it I.E. new folder type folder
name and that is where F/F5 will go then if i do not like it i can go back to
F/F4 OR F/F3.6. Did not get answer from other post so i thought i would try this
because not being 100% PC makes it hard to figure out what to do and where to put
things so you do not lose them as i have seen in the past,THANKS

You should be able to install Firefox 5 in a different folder and thereby have both Firefox 4 and Firefox 5 installed. Only one will run at a time, though.

it's ok to keep it in the same folder if you only want to upgrade and not have 2 programs.
the shortcuts in your start menu will still be pointing to the same place, so when you click
firefox, it'll open the new version in that folder. let us know if you need help setting up firefox,
since you're probably worried about everything working in the new version.
