Question K shortcut for FireFox


Hi,

I installed FireFox and "*firefox" ended up at "file:/usr/share/firefox/firefox-installer".
If I "browse" to "file:/usr/share/firefox/firefox-installer" and click on "*firefox" it runs OK

But how do I get a "shortcut" on the desktop and/or into the "K" "start" menu ?

Thank You
