  1. Open the page you wish to make a shortcut to.
  2. 2. Press control+l to open the address bar.
  3.   Copy the address to your clipboard
  4.   Go to your desktop and right click (numpad *)
  5.   Press w for new
  6.   Arrow down to shortcut and enter
  7.   Paste the URL on your clipboard and tab to next and enter
  8.   Give the shortcut a name and enter.

Hello, I think it’s the same as with chrome. You have to find an empty spot on your desktop, which you can do using the external numeric keypad, select the link in Firefox, and then right click the desktop to make a shortcut.

When you select the shortcut option, there are a number of fields that you can tab through. One of them will ask you for the half, and that’s where you put the link. Then the next box asks you to name the shortcut.

There is no need to do all of this in Chrome.

Simply bring up the chrome menu, then more tool and then create shortcut.

This puts a shortcut on the desktop with the  name of the webpage as the default title.

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.
