locked Re: creating internet shortcuts with firefox


What follows, and was offered this morning by Robert Doc Wright godfearer, is the correct answer to the question posed.

That being said, this topic is now locked, as it is not, and never has been, about NVDA.  The question is about creating an desktop shortcut for Firefox and the answer is completely screen reader agnostic.   Sticking "with NVDA" on a question that involves NVDA in no specific way does not make it on-topic for the main group.  This is precisely the sort of question that belongs on the Chat Subgroup.

It's also not a "compare and contrast" with Chrome, either.  So offering how this is done in Chrome is doubly off-topic.
