take a look at the save page We extension. I think this is the ticket.

There used to be a Firefox plugin called “Deskcut” that worked really
nicely.  However, it seems it is no longer available.  If someone knows
where to get it, please reply!  With Deskcut, a context menu choice was
added to the applications key (shift+F10) “save link” that put a
shortcut onto your desktop.  It worked like the IE “send shortcut to
desktop” command.  I have not found a similar Firefox substitute.  If
anyone knows of a good substitute, please reply!

Thank you very much Brian. I would have expected a somewhat friendlier
way for us blind people, as I have found with chrome, but not with
Firefox so far.

                                             Take care,

The "Method One" documented here,
https://www.intowindows.com/how-to-create-website-shortcut-on-desktop-in-windows-10/,

will work to create a desktop shortcut that will open under your default
web browser in Windows 10.

If Firefox is not your default web browser, and you want to use it as an
exception case, things get slightly more complicated.  For the moment I
will presume it is your default.
