That's normal. One will be the .html file, the other is a folder containing objects needed to display the page correctly, like gifs or jpgs.

If you save it as a web page you will get 1 shortcut.
If you save it as a web page complete then you will get the shortcut and the folder.

What do you have the "save as type" selected as when you do your right click?

When you Save Page As, a Save As window opens. At the bottom of the window is the Save As Type selection.

Yes, that should do it. I suspect FireFox changed the default in one of their recent updates.
