Instead of placing the shortcut to that folder, try dragging and dropping it directly to the taskbar ( make sure  quick launch is unlocked)

chek if placing the cursor over the internet icon on quick launch or right clicking it show you a link to if yes then you have to draggin and dropping a shortcut in order it to appear, the problem is that your shortcut of a website opens with internet explorer, but there is an internet explorer quicklaunch by default... bill gates ideas...

meaby you could dragg it  from the quick launch itself and then drop it on the place you want to have it, it it does not work you can try by opening another web browser(like chrome or firefox) and after load dragg and drop from the favicon and drop it on the taskbar.
