Try downloading CCleaner and using the Fix Registry tool. Fix all errors it finds. Reboot and try to install again.
Yeah I've done that, and it still says the same thing.

Could I have a screenshot?

Also there isn't supposed to be a message, it's supposed to automatically install over the old version (v14+)

Sure. Yeah I know, it doesn't make any sense.

Have you tried deleting it manually?

There shouldn't be any registry entries anyway. Also, are you running as admin?

Yes, and neither option worked.

Time to contact installer support. I'll get back to you on this.

 

EDIT: Have you tried:

 

Solution 1: Try using the Microsoft Fix it wizard. 

The Microsoft Fix it wizard is available at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971187. The wizard updates the Windows registry so that you can usually uninstall previous versions of the program, or install or update the current version successfully.

 

Or you could install the version you had previously installed.

I had an odd occurrence with the installation program as well, but I fixed it real quick it didn't seem like a big deal to me. After seeing @Dcy post I had similar issue where when I went to uninstall FF14 in Revo Uninstaller it looked as if it was uninstalling, until I saw how many files and registry entries were left on my system. Although I probably would not of come to that conclusion immediately if I couldn't see what transpired. So then I tried using normal uninstall w/ the plan to use ccleaner after, except it just kept popping up to repair every time I clicked uninstall. So after about 2-3rounds of this, I just deleted the directory structure and ran ccleaner, let it fix the issues. Then I was able to install WF 15 w/o issue.

I'm also having the massive memory issues. Open up waterfox, its fine for around 30 seconds. The first time I noticed my system suddenly slow down. Task manager reported physical memory at 96%, but nothing in the processes tab was using anything near that much, it was still on a couple of hundred megabytes. So I loaded up the Resource Monitor, and saw this:

As it is, waterfox is totally unusable, so I have just reinstalled Firefox, still using the same profile, and it is completely fine. Waterfox was running fine this morning, it was version 14, then I updated my graphics card drivers to the AMD Catalyst 12.8 drivers for my 6870X2 graphics card and rebooted. Thing is, I thought I'd been using waterfox since the reboot with no issue, at least for a couple of hours before this reared its head. Tried updating to waterfox 15 with no luck as well.
Still, hope this is of use to someone, and that it gets fixed! For now, its back to Firefox for me.

Edit: Firefox had a similar problem afterall, and it looks to be a known issue:

Disabled hardware acceleration and Waterfix works now.
