Firstly, you might like to try the latest version, which has been 
renamed firefox.

Now to get the shortcut, just navigate to the installation directory, 
which for me was
"C:\My Documents\downloads\programmes\MozillaFirebird\MozillaFirebird.exe"

find the programme,
right click on it and while keeping the right mouse button pressed, drag 
over to the desktop,
let go of the mouse,
you should have a little dialgue box,
select "create shortcut here".
Then select the shortcut, press F2 (function key labeled F2) and edit 
the label for the shortcut.
