    If it is already in the Applications folder, than drag that firefox icon on the desktop (it's called a disc image), to the trash to eject it, and then delete that .DMG file, and you'll never see it again. :)

    drag them to the bin to eject them, you'll still have the apps, but those dmgs will be gone
