Windows 7: Two Firefox versions

Two Firefox versions

I am currently running Firefox 3.6.18. Is it possible to download the latest version and run it separately, without its overwriting 3.6.18? I'd like to test the latest version and don't want to lose 3.6.18.

Thanks.

Try the portable Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition 5.0 Beta 7 | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives and extract it to a new folder and put it anywhere you like. You can pin it to taskbar or start menu. That's is how I went to FF5. It's a great way to test addons and the layout.
