Yesterday, I was using Firefox. Today, it disappeared from my dock. I can't find it to use it.

Posted

I downloaded Mozilla on my Mac yesterday, and it was working just fine. The icon was in the dock, and I just had to click on it to browse. However, when I tried to use it this morning, I couldn't find the Firefox icon or the program. I checked my launcher, and it wasn't there. What do I need to do to make sure I don't lose it every time I close my computer.
