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 sounds good. Whatever you do, please don't make a normal windows style installer though. When I moved from Windows to Mac one of the things I really liked was not having to use an installer, and just being able to drag and drop stuff where I want it to be. I really don't think windows style installers have a place on the Mac.
