How to find firefox in Mac OS X?

I bought a Macbook Pro yesterday and installed firefox. I used firefox a few times, but now I can't find it. How can I find where it is?

"Something else that might have happened is that you ran Firefox directly from the DMG instead of actually ""installing"" it.

Firefox comes in what is called a DMG. DMGs are basically virtual disks that hold data, and then when you double-click them they essentially ""plug in"" to the system, and look just like another drive. What you may have done is run Firefox directly from the DMG, instead of ""installing"" Firefox. Then, perhaps after a reboot, the DMG got unmounted (essentially ""unplugged"", no longer looking like a drive) and so you couldn't find the icon any more. It's an easy mistake to make.

To actually ""install"" something from a DMG in Mac is really easy. Here's how."

"You can find it in the /Applications folder.
Anyway, install QuickSilver to launch applications quickly by typing parts of their names."
