Default Help! ie shortcut to website while firefox is default

Okay here's my problem: I'm running Vista home premium, and firefox is my default browser. Now I want to create a shortcut for a few websites and have them open in IE not firefox.

Is this possible?

Thanks for any help.

The short answer is no you cannot do that. What you can do is install a plugin to Firefox called IE tab (here) open the link in favourites or bookmarks and select the page you want then hit the open page in IE icon. This will open the page in a IE instance within the Firefox application.
