Sorry copy to root goes here. /root/.kde/share/applnk/Internet/firefox.desktop
If Internet directory is not there create it.
Make sure you capitalise the ' I ' in Internet otherwise it will create a new folder in menus.
Same for each user /home/"username here minus this and quotes"/.kde/share/applnk/Internet/firefox.desktop
Once done you can change the icon of the link under ~/.kde/share/applnk/Internet/firefox.desktop by left clicking the properties of the .desktop file and change the icon by click on the icon in the properties on the General tab and changing it to the one under file:/usr/lib/firefox-1.0/icons/mozicon16.xpm. Or where ever you created your firefox directory. The other one there might work better.
