It is really annoying, and it is an astoundingly old bug in firefox. 
Apparently it's very hard to fix due to annoying details of the firefox 

It would be simplest for everyone if haskell.org was prepared to send 
out the files as text/plain (even though this is the wrong mime type), 
as I believe it used to do.

The browser plugins can help, though.
