After reading everyone's excellent answers, I'm left curious as to what
adding the ".jpg" extension will do. Some (many) of the cached files
will be html files afterall.

My boss likes to check the jpg files in the cache of each account on a regular basis. Firefox doesn't use the file extensions in the cache but if you tack a .jpg at the end, the files that are actually jpg's will show up as thumb nails on his xp box.

Ahhh, so an innocent student (or maybe not so innocent) browses to some nasty site, caches some image based malware, and your boss's WinXP computer happily gets infected??!!
