Hi Donald, when you add the item the tick box next to it in the list
of menu items that makes it visible may be unchecked. If you want to
add an item to the panel (the bar at the top with the menus and icons
on) then right click and 'add to panel'. Personally I'd keep the old
launcher for Firefox around in case you hit problems with the beta.

As you posted this to the accessibility list I wonder if you there are
access issues with either of these methods like lack of key access
(I'm on Windows right now so can't check)?
