That is a known issue, also commented here in the forums:
This happens to many applications. Firefox and Thunderbird are but two. The fix is to edit the lauch icon properties by right clicking on the icon, clicking on “advanced” and disabling the “enable launch feedback” button. Many applications provide no launch feed back to KDE, including Firefox and Thunderbird. But, KDE will continue to display the bouncing icon until it times out because it is waiting for launch feedback that never comes.
