If you locate firefox from Applications - Internet - Firefox, you can right click the icon, and create shortcut or add to launch bar. You might be able to drag the icon directly to the desktop.

I can't check at the moment as I'm at work.

Good luck

Just right click on the desktop, click on create launcher, then in the command line type firefox. Give it a name and save. Hey presto. Easy.
