if you're using KDE, you can right click on an empty spot on your desktop, and select "create new" and "link to application"
from there, it's just a matter of filling in the boxes...the first box you can name Firefox, then go to the application tab, and fill in the "command" line, which will be the actual command to fire up firefox, such as "~/firefox-installer/firefox"
(without the quotes), then click ok and it will create the icon on your desktop.
to make the icon a firefox icon, right click on the new icon you created, choose properties, and on the general tab, click on the icon box, and it will open up a selection of icons you can use.
after that you can drag the icon to an empty spot on your taskbar for a quicklaunch
