I have a Yahoo Mail icon that opens with Internet Explorer, but I want a Yahoo Mail icon that opens with Firefox. Firefox is set as our default browser. How do I set up that icon?

Right-click on your desktop, select New, then Shortcut. In the location box, enter "http://mail.yahoo.com" (without quotes). Click Next, then name the shortcut whatever you wish. When double-clicked, it will open in your computer's default web browser.
