right click on your desktop, choose create new link to application and you can set up new launch applications there....
if you click on the box with the icon, you can choose from different icons to use for it.

If I remember correctly (it was only my first time doing it), but there were some options that you could choose from if you right-click on the desktop. One of them allows you to (I think) look in the folder where FF is stored and there is the icon there. At any rate, it wasn't part of the normal icons that were supplied. Just snoop around and you should find it.

There are really good firefox and thunderbird icons at kde-look.org. Unfortunately it's offline for some reason, so when it's back up, use the search function to look for firefox under the icons option.
