Firefox problems

I just switched from KDE to Gnome in Mandrake and whenever I open up the firefox file it always ask me if I want to Display, Run in Terminal, or Cancel. I clicked on Run in Terminal and it opened my homepage. It has not done this in KDE I dont know whats wrong.

Also, in gnome, how could I make a Firefox Icon in my desktop as a shortcut. I tried moving the file there but did not seem to open up.

And the same thing with Mozilla Thunderbird too.

Heres whats it doing:

Firefox is a executable text file, do you want to:

Display-Run in Terminal-Run-Cancel
