    This should be posted in the "Mac Basics and Help" Forum..

    But if you need help completing the install on your mac you can look here:

    this is not a "driver" icon, it's a mounted disk image.

    applications such as firefox come packaged within a disk image. so you'll download a *.dmg file and 'mount' it by opening the dmg file. the image will show up on your desktop just like an external hard drive. you need to then remove the contents of the disk image and put it on your computer, then enject the image just like you would a cd, dvd external drive, etc... (drag it to the trash)

    No need to feel stupid.... I was in the same boat. My only issue was what do I do with the stuff after I have installed it. Didn't know what I could or couldn't delete.
