The last update 15.01 did not remove 15.0 is it safe to remove 15.0?

After doing the the last update 15.01 a few days later as part of my regular maintenance I go to remove programs to check for anomalous or invasive programs. I noticed Firefox 15.0 is still there. Normally the program replaces itself and or removes older versions. I am assuming it is safe to remove 15.0

Hey, me too. I'm not inclined to touch either of them without someone digging through the Windows Registy and figuring out what the Uninstall button will do. If you like to experiment, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings folder (your Profiles folder) in case something goes wrong. See Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles. For example, you can copy your entire Firefox Profiles folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.
