You've got me lost if a completely new shortcut doesn't work! However you still shouldn't need to be going anywhere near Google. Simply create a bookmark for Facebook and access it that way instead.

Are you aiming at the right page

right click on your link - go to properties and see if your address agrees with the one above.
It's probably simplest to delete your existing desktop shortcut to Facebook (via right-clicking on it and selecting 'Delete') and creating a new one.

To do so, go to UKB's link. Make your browser window small than full screen (by clicking on the overlapping squares at the top-right-hand corner). Click on the small icon immediately to the left of where the web address is displayed (which, since it's a secure site, is likely to be a padlock symbol) and drag it onto your desktop. Job done!
