Question How to install firefox icon back on desktop??

I want to put another Firefox icon on my desktop (it is on task bar).
I did a search and did as it suggested and it did not give option to put on desktop.

Also do I do the same way for Ie too?

Thanks so much!

If you want to add a Firefox tile to the Start screen, with the Start screen showing, just start typing the word "Firefox." When it appears in the list in right-hand Search pane, right click it and in the menu that opens, left click "Pin to Start."
