When I open up the Firefox browser and go to a web page icon and drag the web page icon onto my desk top the icon is a Firefox icon and not the web page icon. How do I set the setting to have it show the web page icon on the my desktop instead of the Firefox icon.

You can drag the favicon on the left end of the location bar onto the desktop to create a shortcut.
If you create an internet shortcut that way then that shortcut gets the icon of the default browser.
If you want a different icon (favicon) then you have to assign that icon yourself to the desktop shortcut (right-click: Properties).
You can usually get the favicon if you append "favicon.ico" to the main domain of a website (e.g. http://www.mozilla.com/favicon.ico ) to display the favicon in a tab and save that image to a folder or see if you can find it in "Tools > Page Info > Media".
