    I've found the best way is to use Resource Hacker 
<http://www.users.on.net/johnson/resourcehacker/>.  You need to use it 
on the straight executable - firefox.exe can't be UPX packed before 
hacking it in this way, and I have had problems with it losing it's 
status as the default handler for html after use.  However, it does work 
rather nicely, and we use it to modify Firefox for our Firexplorer 
project.  The other thing you might want to look at is the iconpacks, 
but once it's been modified wth the Resource Hacker you shouldn't need them.
