When I drag and drop an icon from the address bar to the desktop is does creat the shortcut but will not display the website icon, only the firefox icon, how can I display website icons?
When I drag and drop a website icon from the Forefox address bar to the desk top, the short cut is created but the icon that appears is the firefox Icon. I want to disply the icon from the website that the short cut refers to. I have checked all I can think of in my computer to no avail.

You have to assign the favicon yourself to the desktop shortcut (right-click the shortcut: Properties) after you have dragged the link to the desktop. You can usually find the favicon in Tools >Page Info > Media and save the icon there. Otherwise use the main domain of the website and add favicon.ico (e.g. mozilla.com/favicon.ico ) to display the favicon in a tab and save that image to a folder.
This was helpful thanks and I can now change icons. It is somewhat long winded and it would help if Firefox captured the Icon automatically as Explorer does. I guess there must be a good reason for not doing so.
Good reason? Obviously they're not as smart as Explorer. After a couple of years using Firefox, I'm going back to Explorer because I'm sick of all of my desktop icons looking like the Firefox globe. I want to quickly identify my shortcuts by their website icons. It's totally stupid that all my icons are the same!
