Since you are using Suse, I am gonna assume that you are running KDE. (Gnome does this in a similar way).
Same as Windows, right click on you desktop and select new>application launcher. Fill in the blanks. Name it. Click on the big square where the icon sits and navigate to the folder where the icon for firefox is. click on the executable tab and enter the path to the program (you can use ~/ as a shorthand for /home/whoeveriam).
Take about an hour and browse the KDE help file. Its well laid out and you'll find some neat and easy things in there.
