    Default Firefox 3 shortcut

    Hello!

    I tried to install firefox 3 on a different manner (copy the files to its directory)
    I would like to create a short cut of firefox on my desktop and at the start menu, because i run my firefox in the shell like: ./firefox

    Thanks

    If you're on KDE4,

    Desktop shortcut:
    Just drag the firefox icon from file manager and drop it onto Folder View plasmoid. A small menu pops up. Select "Link here"

    Menu shortcut:
    Right click on start menu icon --> Menu Editor --> select a category/sub-category --> click New Item in the top menu --> Give a name and put path/to/firefox in Command field. Click Save.

    Once done right click on the icon in start menu and click "Add to Favorites" to make it appear under favorites list.
