Not just Safari

The -f flag can also be used to pipe to other applications as well, including other browsers. Unfortunately open saves the pipe output to a temporary file with a .txt extension, which the Mozilla Suite and Firefox browsers interpret to mean a text/plain content-type.

I noticed this also. It i very irritating, it would be nice to be able to control the extension OSX uses for the temporary file. Some applications use the extension to determine how to handle the file.
