How can I start Gmail (and other google applications) when I'm offline?

Using Gears, I can download my mail, calendar, etc. from Google Apps and when I disconnect from the net while the application is opened in the browser, I can still access my data. Google also places icons in my Desktop/ folder which I can use to start firefox on the correct page, but they link to "google.com" which is not available when I'm offline. Is there a way to keep a local copy of the google apps so I can start the appliactions in offline mode?

Not sure about Firefox. I read my mail with Chrome, and I created a shortcut on my desktop (using the link in Mail - Settings - Offline - Other options). And when I click that shortcut when I'm offline, it brings me to my mailbox.
