Whenever I launch Firefox 4, two Firefox icons appear in my dock. Why does this happen and how can I have just one icon launch? I'm using a Mac.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I installed Firefox 4 on my iMac

Same problem here. Same specs as everyone else.

iMac OS 10.6 I'm anxious to use Firefox 4 B1 but opening the second icon is too bothersome.

I've used Firefox since 0.5 and am a loyal user but that problem needs to be fixed before I'll use the Beta.

I'll stick with Opera 10.6 until Firefox 4 is fixed.

I have the same issue and it's the out-of-process flash running because if you kill it the browser informs you that flash has died.

me too. i think it is because of flash when you click on the other icon and click on quit in the dock flash will not run ..the pages need to be reloaded.hope it is fixed in beta 2. BTW i love the look of firefox 4 like opera+ chrome

I noticed the second icon only appears when my BOOTCAMP partition is loaded If I eject the Bootcamp partition, I only have one icon

Digging further, I uninstalled the Firefox B1 (windows) from the bootcamp partition and all id OK now, only one icon

I would suggest when we start FF 4 B1 on our Mac that it find something on Bootcamp FF 4 b1 and starts it

If I place a different icon on the FF application I get two icons in the dock - one old and one new - clue?

The second process is running Flash and Quicktime so that Flash crashes won't kill Firefox. This will be hidden in a future build but it was determined that it was more important to get the feature out there for beta testing rather than waiting until it was perfect.
