Upon opening .swf files I get open or save as options. I have tried all the fixes I could locate nothing is helping. I have even tried to reinstall the flash player program. I can play the files from the site but after downloading them I can no longer play the files from my desktop without getting the open or save as options like it is trying to re-download the same file. This repeats non-stop. I have checked the options in tools however I can't seem to change or reset any of the things for .swf files. One of the options for the file targets shockwave flash, which I have installed but the other says always ask. I can't change it to firefox, if I set it to IE it repeats the open or save as options like it does in firefox. I can't seem to locate any program to open the file in firefox.
Before the last few updates I use to just be able to click on a .swf file and it'd open in firefox without issue. I'm not sure what has changed within the last few updates but now I can't open .swf files unless I do so from the site I downloaded the file from.
