Hi Rick, 

did you try to drag and drop URL icon. 

I just did that, it created URL link on a desktop. 
Closed browser (Firefox).
Click on link and it was opened in Firefox again. 

Logged out and back in, icon is still there and works. 

The desktop setting is Plain Desktop, on openSUSE 11.1.

The Konqueror had problem to open even Google site with results, but that is 
another problem, with file associations. 
It is fixed in:
Main Menu> Configure Desktop > Advanced > File Associations
by pushing Konqueror on the first place in the list.

Before change Firefox was first in the list which with another setting in:
Main Menu> Configure Desktop > Default Applications > Web Browser 
that was set to open web page in an application depending on content of URL. 

Content was html and default was Firefox, so Konqueror obediently offerred 
download or Firefox. 

Regards, Rajko
