Should an application run with one click or two on it's icon on the 

I just installed 12.04 sometimes I can run a program with one click and 
other times it takes two.  Usually the first thing I open is Firefox 
followed by Thunderbird.  They require two clicks while the terminal

Firefox one click will open it.

What are the rules regarding this?

Thanks,  Jim
