Does Firefox have a Send > Shortcut to Desktop capability like IE?

One of I.E.'s most useful capabilities is it allows me to drop a link to a website right onto my desktop when I'm looking at that website.   To do this in I.E., go to File > Send > Shortcut to Desktop.

I really miss this when I'm browsing with Firefox and I've tried to find the equivalent function among FF's menus but I've failed.   Is it there and I don't recognize it or is there some 'add-on' I can install that will give me this ability.

    I dont know of a menu entry, but I can click on a link and drag/drop it onto my desktop and achieve the same goal.

    You can also grab a whole tab and drag it to your desktop.
