[lubuntu] How do I create new a launcher in LXDE panel

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi My question relates to Lubuntu 13.04. I simply want to add a couple of new quick launcher applets into the panel. E.g Firefox but I can't seem to do it. I can drag firefox on to the desktop but not to the panel. I tried looking in panel proerties etc and while theres the option to add applets Firefox is not listed. I suppose I'm just missing something obvious but can't see it. Also how to get a trash icon o the desktop? Thanks everyone! (Hardware)
