This is very confusing for new users to Firefox. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Mount disk image Tells you to drag to Applications You have to manually open Macintosh HD and then apps, then drag into applications. Actual Results: Moves app into applications Expected Results: The mounted disc image picture of the applications folder should be a live link, so you can drag it from the same window as the Firfox icon. Adiumx does this perfectly and I think it should be done this way. Please check out how Adiumx does it's installer. http://adiumx.com
This is discussed at length in bug 283598 and bug 305717 - the /Applications directory is not named the same thing in localized versions of Mac, meaning that a symlink won't always resolve correctly, and that it can be confusing for users to see their entire hard drive appear as a link on the DMG.

There is a universal shortcut in Mac command + **** + a that in finder will take you to applications. Can you have the DMG run this finder shortcut as it mounts to bring up applications?
