Until I updated the browser this morning I would normally:

    Click the icon on the left of the address bar (where the URL is shown).
    While still holding the mouse button down, move the pointer to the desktop, then release the mouse button. The       shortcut will be created.

This no longer works. Any suggestions. Using Windows 7.

Thanks to each of you for your suggestions. I had disabled add-ons, tried key combos and still had the issue. Interestingly two reboots and a day later everything works as it should. Go figure!

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

I'm sure it's no consolation, but when I drag the "i-in-a-circle" icon on Windows 10, it is still working the same as previous versions (the mouse pointer doesn't show in the screenshot, unfortunately):
