I have Firefox on my windows XP computer. I previously used Internet Explorer 6 (which was a lot easier to use). On Firefox when I am on a web page and want to save that web page to my Desktop, I click file, "save page as" and then click save. But two icons of that web page appear on my desktop. How can I save a page to my Desktop in Firefox with only one icon of that page appearing on my Desktop? Thank you very much. murrar

I recommend for you to upgrade to Internet Explorer 8. That way your actions can remain the same as in IE6 (as far as not being confusing), and also you will be a lot more secure and the newer version is a lot faster.

Install unMHT addon in Firefox from : https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8051

This would enable you to save a web page as web archive MHT file - a single file for the whole page. Just select File > Save as MHT
This MHT file can be opened using Internet Explorer, Opera and also Firefox.
