09-24-2004, 05:35 PM #1adiliegroGuestSomething STRANGE just happened...
I downloaded firefox and when the download finished, I had the drive on the desktop and a box opened up with the firefox icon in it. I clicked it thinking it would open the program, but nothing happened. I then saw my dock and the little firefox icon would jump once and dissappear and it kept doing that like ever other second. I tried to stop it, but to no avail. Wouldnt let me trash the box or eject the drive from the desktop. I then tried to force quit it, but an error came back and said that firefox cancelled the forcequit. I ended up having to cold shutdown by holding the button on the back of the machine.
Any thoughts on why this may have happened?

OK, it probably wouldn't let you trash the drive because it was still an open window. I don't know why FireFox wouldn't allow you to forcequit it, that's pretty strange. If it happens again, notify Mac Forums. But I don't think it will.
Hope this helps.

that happened to me when I installed firefox too. I restarted my system, and the problem never occurred again.

Just let it do its thing, don't worry about it.
