I have just slightly changed the description of the bug (favourites->favorites) - before I reported the bug, I had searched the database for quite a while, because I didn't believe that it hadn't been reported before, but apparently using the wrong keywords.
Using the US english spelling might help.

I have some information concerning the bug:

The problem seems to affect only applications that have their desktop
files in the directory /usr/share/applications (like Firefox,
Thunderbird, etc.), while apps that have a desktop file in
/usr/share/applications/kde4 or /usr/share/applications/kde work fine.

I have watched
  .kde/share/config/plasma-appletsrc
and it seems, that the url given for the desktop files is broken. While for the working icons, the Url is
  Url=file:///usr/share/applications/kde4/ksysguard.desktop
for the inoperative icons it is
  Url=firefox.desktop

When I kill plasma, manually fix the entry in plasma-appletsrc, and
restart plasma, the icons work.

** Summary changed:

+ kubuntu kde4 intrepid kickoff menu, items added to favorites dont keep correct icon, generic gear shown
