I usually do this using QGIS. I load the kml layer, save as shapefile and add the columns that are necessary for rendering. Then I open a connection to my postgis database, delete everything inside the current view, and copy-and-paste the kml data into the postgis layer. I have created a separate bboxdb inside postgis for such cases, so my original osm ...

This might have to do with some browser security features in Firefox that block access to local files, that aren't present in chrome/IE.

Event layers may then be exported to a GIS layer (e.g. shapefile), and then you may run a spatial analysis interpolation tool or script to create the raster surface similar to your link example. Finally, these raster layers ...
