Shortcut/ Web link Opening Home page instead of shortcut page??

Just recently I noticed that if I click a desktop shortcut or email link, it opens Firefox to the home page. The only way a shortcut will open the specific page is if Firefox is open already. This happens if I select opening a link in a new tab or new page. Again, this never used to happen until very recent.

Also, this only happens with Firefox on my Mac. On Windows, Firefox doesn't need to be open already in order for the shortcut to open the specific page.
