    First Name:
    have downloaded Firefox to replace chrome and note that i do not get a desktop icon to use Firefox and the chrome icon remains on my desktop. within the body of my search it says chrome is not my default, but thought a desktop icon would be loaded.

    not a major issue, a minor distraction. is this normal?

    As I remember, generally you are given the option if you want that or not unless it's changed since I downloaded it. But it's easy to create one after the fact. Just navigate to the firefox.exe file which is in the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder. right-click the firefox.exe file and select "Send to" then "Desktop (create shortcut)"

    Firefox will not replace Chrome so it's normal the icon would still be there. You can have two or more browsers installed, you just have to designate one as the default.
