    You just go to the Applications folder, grab Firefox's icon and drag and drop it in the dock, on the left side of the trash separator.

    Specs:
    17" Macbook Pro Unibody 2.66 Ghz and Powerbook G4 1.67 GHz 2.0GB RAM
    And if you want to remove it from the dock later, just drag it off of the dock and let it go onto your desktop, and poof.. its gone. But no worries cause its still in your applications folder if you want to put it back.

    Good Luck!

    Just to add to the above, anytime you launch an App/Utility that's not already in your Dock, whether you use Spotlight to find the app or launch it straight to your Apps folder, you can always keep the App/Utilities icon in your Dock by right-clicking it's Dock icon and selecting "Keep In Dock".

    How do I right click on the macbook pro so I can select the "Keep in Dock"?

    Press/hold Command as you click on the icon ... that's the equivalent.

    Along with holding Control while you click, you can set up your trackpad so that it allows a right click.

    System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Trackpad > Check the box that says "Clicking" and then also select that box that says "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click"

    Once you've done that, you'll be able to gently tap the trackpad with two fingers simultaneously and have a right click. IMO, it makes things much faster.
    Mac users swear by their computers. PC users swear at their computers.
