Platform: OS X 10.11 (15A178w) Darwin 15.0.0 I just installed Mac OS X El Capitan developer preview and noticed a weird Firefox startup bug. It seems I cannot start Firefox with the icon but if I run the firefox command from terminal it launches okay. Steps: 1) Download Firefox and put it in Applications 2) Open Finder and go to Applications 3) Double click the Firefox icon to launch > "Firefox is damaged and can't be opened." (the same occurs if launching Firefox from Spotlight) (the same occurs if launching Firefox from the mounted dmg) 4) Open terminal 5) Run "/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox" > Firefox starts as expected This bug only seems to reproduce in Firefox 38.0.5; Firefox Beta, Aurora, and Nightly open fine from the icon-based launchers.
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: nominating to track simply to increase awareness of the issue. This may end up being an OS X bug that will be "fixed" in a future update.
