Re: webpage shortcuts using Firefox
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I am running Windows 10 and Firefox, and use much the same process as you. I had always deselected whatever item was the default selected before creating the new shortcut. I thought that was likely the different. However I tried your step by step without the deselect and it worked fine. When you finish your process, is there a new Icon with the correct name on your desktop?
Guess this was not of much help.

I don’t know why the way I do it in Windows 7 won’t work.
I go to the page, and go to the address field, with alt + D.
Then I do the copy command, control + C, it’s already highlighted.
Then I go to the desktop and I usually unselect whatever is there, but I don’t think this is necessary, with control + space bar.
Then I tap the applications key and arrow to new and open that and enter on shortcut.
Then I paste the URL I copied before, with control + V.
Then I enter and give it a name and I’m done.
It took a lot longer to write this out than this procedure takes.
The default method is drag and drop, which is not particularly convenient for screen reader users.
