As the title states, How come i can't save a web page as just 1 icon? It used to save it as just one icon before but now it saves as 1 icon and 1 folder titled "(name saved as) files". Here's a pic:

When i tried to send the web page through my email, i only sent the icon with the mozilla icon page on it. I didn't send the folder that has the files that go with each of their respective web pages. So when i downloaded the file from my email, i got the web page, but it looked really different in that the page was full of weird symbols and icons instead of actual words or pictures.

If it is unclear as to what i am aiming for, please just let me know and i will try to explain it further and as best as i can.

Thanks in advance!

I assume, you're talking about Firefox.
Don't save web page as "complete", save it as "HTML only"

Thanks

Complete saves the page itself and all page files (in separate folder). HTML saves only the page itself. That's all you need.
Do both saves and you'll see the difference.
