why does firefox keep creating new profiles when I fill in forms

If I use autofill, I have no problem (I double click in a field and get the 2 profile choices I have set up, click on one and then the form fills). But if I have to manually type into a profile field on any site Firefox creates a new autofill profile. I have to go into settings to delete the extras. There should be an option for "create new profiles automatically" that I can turn on or off.
