Trash bin and Recovered Files issue

Mac Os 10.5.4, Firefox browser. I am having an annoying problem with the trash bin and saving pictures from the net. I believe the issue has something to do with Firefox 3.0 because this problem didn't occur until I switched from Safari. Every time I drag a picture into iPhoto, the trash bin fills up with duplicates of the recently imported photos under a file called "Recovered files". Deleting this folder does nothing to the originals in iPhoto. I have to delete them almost every time I import pictures and it is getting on my nerves. Any suggestions or people with the same problem? Is this a normal Firefox/iPhoto thing?
