There are numerous ways to do what you want depending on if you want control 
over which virtual desk the app appears on and its frame and other options.
ksystraycmd --help-all    and
kstart --help-all    for some ideas.

But the simplest way by far is to simply right-click on your K-menu button and 
choose menu editor. Then select any app in your menu tree hierarchy on the 
left and on the right pane you will see where you can set/change its icon/ 
command/ description/ comment etc as well as further options like; start in a 
terminal/ run as different user/ PLACE IN SYSTEM TRAY.   This is all you 
really want for firefox then just click its tray icon to disappear/appear it. 
If you exit the app it will also leave the tray.
