I want to setup a desktop with Firefox but do not know how to setup the large Icons that you press from the Firefox Desktop and take you straight to your pre-designated web site.

If your upload images worked I could send you a pic of what I'm taking about, Opera uses these pre-set icons for personal web site, like bank, travel agent, Modem, etc etc.

Are you trying to create a shortcut, or change the icon that is used?

Firefox doesn't come with such a set of predefined icons. You can set the icon of a desktop shortcut via its Properties and possibly use an icon from an Opera shortcut if you have one that is suitable or use the website's favicon.

Firefox has this pref that you can inspect and modify via the about:config page.
