Why does "Opening Firefox 18.0.1.dmg" keeps coming up (trying to download the .dmg file) everytime I open a new firefox window?
I just downloaded the new firefox and this continues to happen over and over and over again.

Make sure that you haven't set the home page or new tab page to a page that downloads that DMG file.
Try to reset some preferences to the default with the SearchReset extension:
Note that the SearchReset extension only runs once and then uninstalls automatically, so it won't show on the "Firefox > Add-ons" page (about:addons).
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.
