Launcher for mozilla

I would like to create a launcher for mozilla. It has been installed in: /usr/local/mozilla/ directory. Can anyone tell me how to make a launcher? Im using fedora core with the GNOME GUI.

if you want to be able to click the launcher to open a new mozilla window even when one is already open, make the launcher link to a script that looks like this:

mozilla -remote "ping()" &> /dev/null
if [ $? == "0" ]; then
    exec mozilla -remote "openURL(about:blank,new-window)" &
    exec mozilla-firefox &

Don't worry about it. We all were once and some (like me) are apparently eternally so. Just a general tip though - when you answer your own question, no matter what, go ahead and post it up. Some people might come across your thread searching for a solution to the same problem and say 'Ah ha!' if you do whereas now they'll just think 'What did you DO!?'
