Do I need to uninstall 0.9.x before installing 0.9.3?

If I uninstall 0.9.x before installing 0.9.3, will it keep or lose my settings, bookmarks, extensions etc?

I installed it yesterday over my copy of 0.9.x and all the settings look to be the same.

Even if you uninstall 0.9.2, your settings are still retained. However, if you have extensions installed and you've customized them, you may want to find their .rdf files and save a copy of those. They'll be under Windows->Application Data->Mozilla->Firefox->Profiles->[profle_name].glg in Win98.

I believe the various versions of 0.9 can be reinstalled over one another. In fact I think the goal is for all future versions of FireFox to be upgradable that way. Personally, I prefer fresh installs anyway; makes it easier to compare and see about new or missing features.

I think they do recommend removing previous copies before installing, at least while it's in beta.

Uninstalling for this particular upgrade is not needed, I've already done it to a few pc's without any complications.

Rule of thumb is when .x changes, yeah uninstall. When .9x changes don't worry unless they strongly caution it.

Other than the critical fixes what exactly is new in .3? I don't see anything different in the release notes.
