    Double-clicking a disk image will launch the Disk Utility application and mount the virtual disk on your computer.

    Some disk images contain a double-clickable installer, but most enable the user to drag the application from the image directly to the applications folder.

    Firefox does not have the double-clickable installer, so simply drag the icon on the left to your finder window while the applications folder is open.

    I haven't heard of many double-click installers. Can anyone think of software that has that feature?

    I gave remain rep for that when you linked it, and tried to give you rep for linking to it, but I apparently love you too much already, and I couldn't give you anymore!

    Off the top of my head, Microsoft Office comes to mind. I believe Parallels also has an installer and Boot Camp definitely does.

    So basically the ones that have an uninstaller are most likely double-click install.

    Typically, yes. I have run into a few programs that came with an installer program, but not an uninstall utility. Sometimes running the original installer program will perform an uninstall.
