When I downloaded Firefox, an icon for a Firefox disc appeared on my screen, but there was no disc involved in the download. How can I delete this disc icon?
I cannot drag this disc to the trash to get rid of it because it says Firefox is using it, but that can't be the case since there is no disc. I want to get rid of the disc icon.

Is it the Firefox installer? What is the name of the file?
It is an icon that looks like a disc drive and is simply labeled "Firefox."
What happens if you open it?
Make sure that Firefox gets installed properly.
Open the Firefox disk image (DMG) file and drag the Firefox program to the application folder on your hard drive.
You shouldn't double-click the Firefox application to run it from the disk image, but drag it out of the DMG folder instead.
Thank you. I did what you suggested, but the icon remains on my desktop. I'd like to uninstall Firefox and start fresh.
It just says "Firefox."
Doesn't look like the installer. It just says "Firefox." I'd like to uninstall Firefox and start over but I don't know how to do that. Any suggestions? Thank you.

The problem solved itself after an automatic download of software updates from Apple. Maybe all I needed to do was restart my computer. Will try that the next time.
