Windows 7: Change desktop icon when dragging a url to desktop

Change desktop icon when dragging a url to desktop

My default icon for a url shortcut that I drag to my desktop is a blank page with the shortcut arrow. I would like to change that icon system wide. I use Firefox so if I could find a way to have the url shortcut to be a page with the Firefox globe and then make it so it is the default for all url's that I drag to desktop as a shortcut.

I know how to make a customer icon I just don't know how to make it so the icon is used system for url shortcuts on my desktop.
