    This application is showing in my Applications Folder in my iMac. I just downloaded Firefox and it came with it. And the other day installed itself in my MacBook Pro.

    I am deleting it and uninstalling it. But first time I see something like this! And is just after installing Yosemite yesterday.

    It isn't packaged with FireFox, provided one downloads said program directly from the Mozilla site. Double-check the link you used.

    Make sure to look over the link CricketGirl provided. From what I have seen on here, it isn't easy to get rid of on your own.
