    Kay:

    Try using the Rounded Rectangle tool and then the Skew tool to widen the
    bottom of the rectangle.

    From the Fireworks MX Help:

    Drawing rectangles with rounded corners
    You can draw rectangles with rounded corners by using the Rounded Rectangle
    tool, or by using the Roundness option in the Property inspector to adjust
    the corner roundness of selected rectangles. The Rounded Rectangle tool
    draws rectangles as grouped objects. To move rounded rectangle points
    independently, you must ungroup the rectangle or use the Subselection tool.

    To draw a rectangle with rounded corners:
    Choose the Rounded Rectangle tool, located in the Rectangle tool pop-up
    menu.
    Drag on the canvas to draw the rectangle.
    Tip: You can adjust the corner roundness as you draw by pressing any of the
    arrow keys or the 1 or 2 number keys repeatedly.

    To round the corners of a selected rectangle:
    Enter a value from 0 to 100 in the Roundness box in the Property inspector
    and press Enter, or drag the pop-up slider.

    There used to be a great tabbed interface on ProjectSeven, but I don't seem
    to be able to find it now. This is kind of close to what you want.
