Firefox desktop shortcuts

How do I create a desktop shortcut in Firefox please to show as FF.
Just had to do a bit of maintenance and some of my shortcuts have reverted to IE.
Default browser is set to FF, but dragging the FF web address to the desktop in the normal way always gives me an IE icon.
Had this query before, but foget the solution.

You should drag and drop the icon to the left of the URL (i.e. such as the PCA one above) to the Desktop.

Thanks, but I knew that--it was just that when I did it I got an IE icon.
But problem solved, because silly boy had not made FF the default browser again after messing about!!
Thanks for your time. Will resolve.

You did say that you dragged the "web address"..:-)

Apologies--you are correct. Must be more careful.
