    This is a problem in Firefox only.

    Not able to drag web addresses to the desktop or any other folder and save it as a shortcut. What I am writing about is the little icon to the left of the web address in the Firefox address bar. When I drag it outside the browser, I get a circle with a diagonal line, indicating this is not allowed. When I release it, nothing happens.

    This problem started today.

    Got it fixed. I disabled Controlled Folder Access. I don't know how it got enabled as I disabled it long, long ago.
