I disagree with your last point: the launcher is there to launch the web
browser, not Firefox. If the user prefers to use another browser, then
it makes sense to have the launcher launch the other browser.

However the point about icons (in another mail) is interesting. I'm
pretty sure we could find a good solution to this.
