I can do that just fine here.  Right-click on desktop, "Create New->Link 
to location".  I enter "" and there, I just 
created it.  I double-click it, Firefox opens up google/linux.  You 
select the icon, press F2 and can rename it to whatever you want (you 
don't need to keep the ".desktop" suffix).  You can also right-click and 
in the properties select another icon for it.

This is with vanilla, unmodified KDE 4.2.0.
