The attached image appears on my desktop each time I launch firefox. How do I make this go away? It didn't do this on my old Mac.

Chosen solution

Make sure that Firefox gets installed properly.

Open the Firefox Disk Image file and drag the Firefox application to the Applications folder on your hard drive. You shouldn't double-click the Firefox application to run it from the Disk Image, but instead drag it out of the DMG folder.
