In my registry under the Mozilla tab I have entries for all past Firefox downloads from 3.5.1 to 3.6.9. I am now using 4.0. Can I delete these older entries and why were they not deleted when updating .Thanks

Yes, you can remove all those orphaned entries under the Uninstall and the Mozilla registry key and only keep the key for the version(s) that are still installed. It happens a lot that when you update Firefox that the updater doesn't remove the old entry, but only adds a new entry for the new version. If there is only one entry to the Firefox program folder but with a wrong version then leave that entry or edit it to reflect the currently installed version.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mozilla HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla Firefox (????)
Thanks for that. Will do :}
