User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

The window directing the user to drag the Firefox icon into the Applications folder re-appears with each use, despite Firefox already sitting in the Applications folder.  Very annoying.  Often, this delays shutdown (it times out), requiring manual closing of the window. Also annoying.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the Firefox icon in the Dock
2. Window directing user to drag the Firefox icon to the Applications appears
3. Check the Applications folder--Firefox already there.
Actual Results:  
Appears every time Firefox is opened

Expected Results:  
What do you think?  Maybe it should self-destruct in 5 seconds?

The Firefox icon in the dock - how did it get there? Did you dragged it from the installer window (instead of of dragging it from the Applications folder) to the dock? Then you'll have a shortcut to the program in the installer window and not to the program in your Applications folder. Can you try to remove the icon from the dock and then drag the icon in the Applications folder to the dock? Does it work then?
