Say you wanted mozilla, and/or nearly any other application to load and be waiting for you when you log in. Probably the most flexible and global way to do this is to create or modify your .xinitrc. This is a script that is executed when X is started and is located in your home folder, so regardless of which desktop environment you use (KDE, GNOME, Fluxbox, etc.), the application will be launched.

From Suse I know it has a lot of docs in the script. For other distroś I don't know, but you can google for .xinitrc.
