    There is probably a better way than this, but you could open your browser and go to the desired website, bookmark it and place it on the bookmarks bar and then drag the bookmark to the desktop.

    Right click on the new desktop shortcut icon, then click on the shortcut icon and navigate to usr/share/app-install/icons and select the firefox icon. You can also rename the shortcut to suit (or leave as is). You don't have to do this step, just makes it look better.,

    Glad you got what you needed.

    What I mean by clicking on the shortcut icon is shown in the attached image, I have highlighted the shortcut icon with the colour red so you can see where to click.
