The method is the same for Firefox, just drag the favicon to the desktop. If Firefox is your default browser, then they will now open in FF. You can also drag and drop items to the desktop from the Bookmarks menu and the Bookmarks and History sidebar to create shortcuts. A Guy

If you go into Firefox first and then create your shortcut, it will open via Firefox.
