Flash Updater - unwanted desktop icon

Sep 8, 2012 5:14 AM

Tags: #flash_player

I updated my Flash via Adobe's updater and have a new icon in the upper left corner of my Mac desktop. It belongs to Firefox 14.0.1 which means that it goes away when I quit Firefox, but it remains at the forefront of my desktop at all times when Firefox is up.

 

I can't access, move, or get info about the icon. It has two mouse-over actions but nothing happens when I click.

I am operating Mac OSX 10.6.8.

 

I posted a query on the Mozilla forum but no one has responded.

 

Here is a link to a screen capture of the icon:

Thanks,

Dale H

    Hi Dale,

    I haven't seen this icon before.  Do you have any password utilities installed (like 1password)?
