I have a MacBook (the newer version) I am having a weird minor issue that I figured I would attack and try to fix today, Whenever I download an application and drag it into my Application folder the application loses it's icon image. It will work just fine but the image would be a generic "no image" icon. This happens with many different apps and the only fix I have is that I would drag the image to my desktop then drag it back it. That's the only way the image will register, the computer is fairly new and this has been happening since I purchased it from Apple.

It's the way OS X is designed to work as part of its security features.

Here's a good explanation with a proposed action fix:

I only ever encountered this with the Apps folder on the dock.

Hope this helps.
