Cannot open exported text in safari

Whenever I use the export-function in the course presentation in Safari (macOS Sierra 10.12.1) I just get a textedit-document, which is impossible to open. In Chrome (on the same computer) it exports as a .doc-file. I haven´t tested it with other browsers. 

Can this be fixed?

Hi, have you tried right clicking on the document and pressing 'Open With' to open it within text edit?

Hi, thanks for the reply. There´s no option for right clicking and downloading - only the usual "look up, google it, copy, share etc."

Hi, have you tried right clicking after downloading?

Tried it now, only options is to open in textedit or one of my browsers :p So that doesn´t work either.

I've tested it on my side and I'm able to open the exported documents with textedit. Would you be able to send a screenshot of what you see when you try to open it with textedit?

Jesus Christ I´m so stupid. I CAN open the TextEdit-file. I thougth i couldn´t because it automatically opens online, within a new empty tab. So. But - the problem still stands. Is there any way I can download it in .doc in stead of TextEdit (when using Safari)?

Not that I am aware of. You may have to rename it manually :)

That´s too bad. Thanks for your help though :-)
