I just downloaded Firefox to my Mac. Now there is a permanent icon of Firefox on my desktop. Not the Firefox icon though, it is a blue diskdrive icon with a white fox on it.

Also, when I open Firefox a window opens up that has another firefox icon with an arrow beside it pointing to my Applications folder. This happens everytime I open firefox.

How do I get rid of these?

I am using a Mac OSX 10.6.8. & Firefox 5.01. Certain pages have overlapping text which sometimes results in partialy covering some click boxes. If I use Chrome or Safari they are ok on same pages. The example below will show a little of what I mean but on this site in particular when I go into it further the problem increases and I cannot for example access my account because the button I need to click on is covered over with text

Some complex web sites such as Huffington Post dot com home page load slowly . When they finally load and you attempt to open a tab, several refuse to load. The blue circle just keeps going round and round in a clockwise direction. The prompt box at the lower left of the screen says " Waiting for " or "Reading" or "transferring from" and the name of another web site that apparently contributes to the page. But nothing happens for several minutes. The most common one 'hanging up' is something called pixel.quantserve.com. Multiple attempts "Reloading Tab" do not help. This problem is not present in Internet Explorer itself. Have run AVG anti-virus multiple times and no viruses have been found.

I recently downloaded something from a website and it of course showed up in my download list. For some reason I wasn't paying attention and downloaded it a second time. After opening the download I realized I didn't even need the download. I can't remove it from the list. I don't want to hit clear list because I still want a record of the items I have downloaded. Please help if you can.

I was trying to copy/cut a link from my Address Bar, and I must have hit some really obscure keyboard shortcut and messed up how the address bar shows webpage URLs. Now it shows them over to the right side instead of the left. Here's a picture of what it looks like:

http://oi51.tinypic.com/123w8yf.jpg

This absolutely bothers me and I want my URLs to be back toward the left. How do I fix this? What weird CTRL or CTRL+SHIFT command did I hit?
