Every time I restart my Mac, I lose Firefox and have to re-install it.

I recently purchased my first Mac Book Pro (the 15 inch base model, if it matters) and shortly after tried to install Firefox. I installed it no problem, however, whenever I restart my Mac, it is completely gone. Not in Finder/Applications. I can't seem to figure out what is going on. Help!

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.
