I'd like to make the switch over to Firefox from IE. In the past, when
saving a web page using IE I have always chosen to save it using the
"Single File" option. That results in just a single file being stored.
If I save it as "Web Page" in IE, it results in both a folder and a file
being saved. That results in stored folders all over the place and
then I can't easily tell the folders I set up from those that IE

In using Firefox I can't a way to save files the "Single File" way and
the result is, again, a growing surfeit of saved folders again. Please
show how to save
web pages using the equivalent of the "single file" method in Firefox,
or be able to show that this option is not available at this time.
