Two Versions of Firefox, How Does One Uninstall the Older Version?

  • No replies
  • 5 have this problem

When I go the Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features on my Windows PC, I find listed FireFox 7.0.1 (x86 en-US) and Firefox 18.0.1 (x86 en-US). If I attempt to use the uninstall feature, the pop-up window makes it appear that it will then uninstall everything that has to do with Firefox, rather than just the "old" version. I assume that the version 7 is superfluous. How do uninstall version 7 while leaving version 18 intact?
