Found this via Google... I am really not an absolute beginner :), I am more somewhere close to the midpoint between between absolute beginner and a kernel hacker.

Anyhow, I am having exactly same problem. I'll try to post the answer if I found one.

Ok, found the answer:

1) You need to edit file /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop with root privileges (sudo gedit...) and change the line that says Icon=firefox-3.0 to Icon=firefox.png

2) Go to command line and do

sudo cp /usr/share/icons/nuoveXT2/36x36/apps/firefox.png /usr/share/pixmaps/

3) Logout and log back in
