Outlook Express is an email application, whereas Firefox is a web browser - apples vs oranges.


Even if the uninstall fails, as it may in some cases, continue on with the rest of the uninstall instructions.

   Delete the Firefox Installation directory located here, by default: C:\Program files\Mozilla Firefox ....
