Firefox 70 popup blocker icon has overwritten the URL drag and drop icon. Means I can no longer drag urls to desktop.

As it says above. Worked before update and there was no popup blocker. If I want to create a desktop URL shortcut I first have to put it on the toolbar and drag that. Real pain.

Hi Chris, if you want to drag from the left end of Firefox's address bar to the desktop to create a shortcut, you can drag the lock icon. You're right that dragging the new "shield" icon positioned to the left of the lock doesn't create a shortcut.
