    On my Transformer Android tablet I'm connecting to a wireless video camera on my home network. The browser bundled with the tablet won't display images from the camera, but Firefox will. Now i'd like to create a desktop icon for the Firefox connection to the camera, but i can't figure out how to do it. Suggestions much appreciated.

    Thanks Daz but that's how to get an icon for Firefox. i want to get an icon for a particular webpage accessed using Firefox. The built-in browser has a menu option to do that (Add Bookmark, then Add to Home Screen). Firefox doesn't, or at least I can't find it.

    So further suggestions would be great!

    Do it like Daz suggested, but make the homepage for Firefox the webpage you want to check. Then whenever you open up Firefox it will go right there.

    That also makes it easy to switch back to the camera view as well, as the page will just need you to go to the browser home.

    just another point, I would use dolphin for tab or opera mobile - much better than firefox.
