This is such a newbie question, I know. How do you properly download applications to your mac? I just downloaded firefox. I got this strange box (after it was added to my desktop with an icon) that looked like the firefox symbol, an arrow, and then a folder with an "a". So clueless as to what to do next, I just dragged that firefox icon on the left hand side into my dock. Where it now sits. Was this correct? Everytime I boot up my mac, and click the firefox icon, the same icon appears on my harddrive with the firefox symbol yet again. Also, I'm getting the following message. When entering items in a yahoo searchbar, among other places in firefox: The information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party. Are you sure you want to continue sending this information? (Then a box with a "yes" or "no" option. Followed by a box that is checked off and the following: alert me whenever I submit info that is not encrypted. I'm using a secured WPA N Network, so that can't be the issue. So what gives? Can my info really be seen by others? My friend, a mac users, says to just click "no" for the reminder, that I'm mine, but I just want to make sure.
