I regretfully admit I've been a PC user for years, so go easy on me. Yesterday I tried to install Firefox, mainly because I can't seem to change the fact that Safari here doesn't automatically log me into forums or web-based email sites that I frequent and enter "Remember Me" when I log in. I find it strange that it doesn't, as I have cookies enabled. So I downloaded firefox and once it was done, one of those application bundles (or at least I think it was an application bundle) appeared for it. Now, I'm assuming at this point I made my mistake, because instead of copying it somewhere into the computer I just clicked on it. Nonetheless, firefox started up. I even used it for about 20 minutes. Then I restarted the computer. Firefox had now disappeared from that crazy menu at the bottom. I now figure that was normal because it seems that menu doesn't actually hold files, they're just sort of shortcuts that I'm sure can be edited somewhere that I just haven't discovered yet (am I right here?). Anyway, now there was a new icon below my hard drive, and it was some kind of Firefox and hard drive morphed together. Clicking on it didn't open the actual Firefox browser either. I dont really want firefox thinking it's its own hard drive that doesn't do anything. I just want a little icon thats always on the desktop or on that little menu below so that i quickly run firefox. Anyway, now I couldn't find the actual firefox browser (and I hadn't discovered the little search magnifying glass at the top corner yet, so I don't know if Firefox was actually gone at this point) so I restarted again. This time, the Firefox/Hard drive thing was gone, and now there is nothing left of firefox but a folder filled with a bunch of nonsensical configuration files, but not the actual firefox browser. I'm so confused! Has anybody got a detailed explanation for me?
