The easiest will be to add it to the KMenu...

1. Right-click on the K and you will see an option for menu editor.
2. In the menu editor click on the section (left side of window) of the menu you want this to appear in (ie. Internet) and then click on the "New Item" button at the top of the window.
3. When asked for the name enter "Mozilla" or however you want to identify it.
4. On the right side you will now have a list of options... The only two options you need are command (enter "mozilla" here) and the Icon which you can change to a suitable icon.
5. Click apply and it will be in your menu.

Now if you have a program listed in your menu then you can easily add a link to your taskbar just by right clicking on the taskbar.

1. right click on taskbar
2. go to add
3. go to button
4. find the menu item to add and click on it.
5. It will then appear on the taskbar.

With the taskbar (called "kicker") you can also drag and drop programs onto it. This is also true of the desktop. You can drag an item from the K-menu to either the desktop or kicker and then they will be runable.

I hope that helps :)
