KDE Quick launch icon


I'm afraid this one is pretty basic, but I can't figure out how to do this.
I visit a few websites which are only running properly in firefox. I usually use Chrome to visit other websites, but for this I have to fall back on firefox (no, user agent switchers don't work). Because I have to visit these sites quite often, I would like to get something like the quicklaunch Windows has.
I figured I could do this pretty much like Windows, just drag&drop the firefox icon on my panel, change the icon so I know which website each icon opens, change the "command" field in the Icon Settings (at the Application tab), and it would be done.

Well, that's what I thought. Unfortunately, if I change one icon, the other one changes as well. And I mean every setting. It doesn't look like these are separate .desktop items, they are the same. And not only that, the firefox icon in the Application Launcher does the same. Can someone explain me how to get one icon for each website?

Thanks a lot

My KDE version:

henk@linux-bbdu:~> kde4-config --version
Qt: 4.6.3
KDE: 4.3.5 (KDE 4.3.5) "release 0"
kde4-config: 1.0

Right click with your mouse on your desktop => new => link to program/application

and configure it....

Then you surely have a separate .desktop file
