Mac OS X There are several things which take quite some getting used to when switching from any platform to the Mac. There are things like the universal menubar, the dock, Expose, and many more. One of the things that often leads to confusion for new users is the installation process for applications. Mozilla developer Alexander Limi talks about the problems Mozilla runs into when it comes to Firefox' installation process on the Mac, and a possible solution. Update: A possible solution?

That's an unfair assessment of what I wrote. It says "lets", not "will".

We will never just silently set the browser — in fact, we have that as one of our core principles.

What that paragraph means is that we'll give you an option to set your default browser.

As for the sentence you highlighted, that's a different problem — if you don't start the application, some people forget that they downloaded it in the first place.
