    I have a lot of URL shortcuts on my Desktop from Firefox, but instead of displaying the page title, they all show the URL of the site, so I can't tell exactly what they are.

    How do I make each URL shortcut I put on my Desktop display the page title and not the address?

    Yeah, I shouldn't have to though. When I drag a shortcut from Firefox in Vista, the shortcut is named the title of the site. In Mac OS X, it's the URL of the site (forums.offtopic.com), not "OffTopic.com - Mac Shack" etc.

    I know it can be done, because I haven't had the problem on my other Mac. I just can't remember what I did.

    soooooo...why don't you use bookmarks then? You can manage those and keep your desktop clean.
