That is a good idea.
It is handy that FF allows you to install multiple versions, unlike a certain other browser.

It is worth doing that for any installers you download.
I generally keep a few versions of most installers (just in case).
I have multiple FF installers saved (3.6.13, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8).
It has proved handy.
My XP installation won't run any version above FF 3.6 properly (It did a few months ago).
Soon as I install ANY add-on or search engine, it crashes within a few seconds (even with new, clean installs).
Strangely FF 3.6 has no problems with new add-ons or search engines.
If you have to build multiple VMs, it is handy not to have to download multiple installers repeatedly.
If your friends drop by and need the latest version of something, you can just give them a copy, instead of them having to download it.
