hey jakedavidoff,

I think this will work for you.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe" /s
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall\helper.exe" /s
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\uninstall\helper.exe" /s
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\uninstall\helper.exe" /s

While not usually recommended, firefox and TB are self contained. You can remove both from at least version 1.0 by

%programfiles%\Mozilla Firefox
%programfiles%\Mozilla Thunderbird

This will remove your plugins however!

the registry isnt usually required to be removed
the plugins should be rebuilt or can be simply copied to the new version

There was also an issue moving from version 2 of firefox to version 3 where user profiles sometimes had to be rebuilt, cannot remeber the circumstances
