myDSL extensions are not typically thought of as upgrades. They are self-contained programs intended to expand the useability of DSL. If you are running a liveCD, frugal, poormans (which is probably the case if you're using myDSL apps), removing default programs requires either a remaster or removing them each time you boot. This really shouldn't be an issue, though, since applications are not loaded into ram until you use them (unless you use the toram boot option). If you're having trouble with the old firefox starting when you are expecting the new, try adding the path to the new firefox binary to the beginning of your PATH variable.
If using a harddrive install, I'd recommend using apt or dpkg to install your applications. If this does not upgrade, you can usually remove the old one manually and it will stay gone. Firefox is particularly convenient since it is a self-contained application. Last i knew it was located at /usr/local/bin/firefox/
Desktop icons are in /home/dsl/.xtdesktop/. Look at some of the *.lnk files to see how the icons are used. Adding and removing image/lnk pairs will add and remove icons on the desktop.
The slit (bottom right) applications are launched from /usr/bin/enhance, which is launched from /home/dsl/.xinitrc.
