How do I make some applications to start when I start up my MAC? I would like to know how do I make the apps like Firefox, Mail program to launch as soon as I start up the computer. And how do I disable it again if I changed my mind to not have these apps to launch upon start up?
Thanks.

For OS 10.0 - 10.2: Just open the System Preferences, click Login (it's listed in the first row), click the Login Items tab that appears, click the Add button, select the application in question, and click Open.

For OS 10.3 - 10.4: Just open the System Preferences, click Accounts (it's listed in the System row), click the Startup Items tab that appears , click the [+], select the application from the file dialog, and click Add.

That's it!
