HOW? Create your own icons for panel shortcuts (or use images from the web)

yeah, i have ubuntu 8.04 (pretty sure) will obviously be upgrading at the end of the month. im quite into 'the bleeding edge' of programs etc and have downloaded the latest firefox web browser "minefield" and when i put it my shortcut panel i want to make its icon the same as the minefeild logo. so as a former windows user i simply saved the image to a folder in pictures and then tried to use that minefield logo as the icon displayed in the panel.

MY METHOD: -right click on minefield icon
-change icon etc

however it then doesn't allow me this simple luxury, am i doing anything wrong or am i just a noob haha

If you are talking about this;
and you want to change to this icon that is a 128x128 png.
Just click on the old icon and browse to the new icon. When you get to the folder that holds the icon press open.
