First you need to know the command of the application you want to start or the location of its binary. The command of the application is usually its name. For example, if you type firefox into a terminal it will start Firefox.

To make Firefox start on startup, open "Startup Applications" from the dash. Click 'Add' then fill out the 'Command' field with the command for the application, in this case firefox. Or, if you know the location of the executable file, click "Browse..." and navigate to the file. The 'Name' and 'Comment' fields are optional.
