If Firefox was dragged from the DMG straight to the Dock and the user subsequently chooses to install Firefox to /Applications using our prompt from bug 516362, the installation will result in a second Firefox icon being pinned right next to the first, user-created one. The first icon will continue to point to Firefox inside the DMG. The second one will point to Firefox in /Applications.

STR:

  1. Download Nightly.
  2. Open the .dmg
  3. Drag "Firefox Nightly" to the Dock.
  4. Double click the "Firefox Nightly" icon in the .dmg folder, or click the icon in the Dock.
  5. When the "Install Firefox" dialog appears, select "Install"

Expected results:
There should only be one icon in the Dock, pointing to the newly installed Firefox .app bundle in /Applications.

Actual results:
Two icons in the Dock. The first one pointing to Firefox inside the DMG. The second one pointing to Firefox in /Applications.
