The Firefox icon (among others) is now next to the mintmenu on my panel by using the above method.
See the picture in my post in this thread and how I did it:viewtopic.php?f=175&t=99422
You right-click the panel.
click Add/remove panel items
Panel Preferences > Panel Applets
You click on the Application Launch Bar item in the list - which "contains" your Firefox icon
Click the Up button - and keep clicking the Up button until you see the Firefox icon moving to the left of the panel where you want it - near mintmenu.
You can move other items in the panel eg. the Digital Clock or Volume Control in the same way - click up or down buttons to rearrange as desired.
