Why do complete web pages download as a file and a folder on macs as opposed to the single file downloads in safari?

Is it necessary to have both a folder full of files and a individual file appear whenever I want to download a complete web page in firefox. This is not the case in safari. It is inconvenient to have to keep two icons for every web page, and if I put the file icon into the folder of other files that download with each web page it is not a simple click of an icon to open the page offline. I have to go into the folder and find the file icon. Am I missing some setting to make this work as easily in firefox as it does in safari? Thanks.

Safari use webarchive format. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webarchive

Firefox doesn't include a similar feature, but a feature like that can be added via either the MAF extension or the UnMHT extension.
