I'm not sure about the other sites but with Gmail, you need to use a URL like this -- the address where the browser comes to rest after logins and redirects:

https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox

If you set the shortcut to an address that has to redirect to get to that address, Firefox won't save the icon.

@jscher2000, They are not redirecting shortcuts, they are exact links of final End Points

I'm having this problem too, but only on my laptop. It works fine on my desktop.
