Windows 7 upgrade advisor, from Vista, says that Firefox must be uninstalled before upgrading and that I won't be able to reinstall it, is this true?

I am currently running Vista, 32-bit. I am considering upgrading to Windows 7. I ran the Upgrade Advisor Report and it says "Mozilla Firefox 20.0.1 Must be uninstalled before upgrading to Windows 7. You will not be able to reinstall it after upgrading to Windows 7." This appears to be inaccurate info, based on the Firefox website, but I want to verify what I should do before beginning the upgrade. Leave Firefox installed and in place when I upgrade, or uninstall and then re-install after the upgrade?

I'm trying to remove a search engine I installed. I deleted the XML file, but when I try to remove it via Manage Search Engines, the window doesn't do anything when I click OK, and can only exit it via Cancel or the X. Can someone help?

EDIT: Never mind, figured it out; go ahead and delete or close this or whatever.

I just updated Firefox after putting it off for quite a while. When I re-opened it, I noticed that it had reverted back to the default theme. So I went into Add-ons and tried to enable the theme that I'd been using before (fractal wonderland) but it said that the theme was already enabled. So I tried enabling another theme, but it had no effect. I tried restarting Firefox and even restarting my computer, but no matter what I did the theme wouldn't change. I really, really miss my old theme...is there any way that I can get it back?

I have a problem with Firefox 20.0.1 under Windows 7 with Shockwave flash 11.7.700.169. When I access a web site / web page with some content that requires Shockwave (usually videos) I can view the video, however, when I exit Firefox, it will crash with "Firefox encountered a problem - check for a solution ...". I also have a web site "MyHeritage" that when I access a family tree I repeatedly get a message "Video driver stopped working - NVIDIA driver ... has successfully recovered". If I disable Shockwave, Firefox will not crash in both cases, unfortunately, I cannot watch any video content. I did go to the Adobe web site and updated what I thought was my version of Shockwave, unfortunately this installed Director for netscape V12.2, I have disabled this plug-in. BTW - running Firefox in safe mode (add-ons disabled) stopped my NVIDIA driver from crashing and also stopped Firefox from crashing when exiting.

from homepage, I can access a bookmarked site...but when I try to switch from that site (any bookmarked site) to my Hotmail bookmarked site (which is my homepage site), it always "times out" and doesn't complete the connection back...this did not used to be a problem. Restoring my computer to a previous time when it still functioned as desired, does not solve the problem, either...

Regardless of where I right-click on a displayed webpage (NOT the menu bar at the top of the screen), be it highlighted text, a blank spot in a webpage, or anything, the context menu for a hyperlink pops up (with the options for opening it in a new tab, window or private window, bookmarking), and none of the options actually do anything even if it is a hyperlink I'm clicking on. Using keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl + clicking work fine. I haven't installed any plugins recently, and it only started a few hours ago. Wat do?
