I set up my first mac this week and downloaded 2 programs, sorry, applications. NeoOffice was fine and I ended up with a NeoOffice icon on the dock and one on the desktop. I trashed the desktop icon and the dock NeoOffice icon worked as it should. Firefox also had an icon on the dock plus an icon on the desktop. If I trashed the desktop icon, then opened Firefox with the dock icon, a window would open showing I needed to drag/drop to the "applications" symbol. That would open Firefox but would add the desktop icon again. When I kept both of the Firefox icons then Firefox would open normally when I clicked on the Firefox dock icon. Is there anyway to get rid of the Firefox desktop icon and still open Firefox with a click on the dock icon?
