    I'm probably not the best to be offering advise since I'm a new mac user myself, but I think you are having the same confusion I did, and wth Firefox no less. Basically I didn't know how to install it the right way.

    When that splash screen pops up, that's the prompt to install the program. Open your HD and drag the firefox icon to the applications folder. Then, open the apps folder and drag the firefox icon to the toolbar. Then, you can eject the virtual cd on the desktop and delete the dmg you downloaded. Then its installed.

    The other part, unistalling, from what I've read is just drag the icon from the applications folder to the trash, that uninstalls.
