Opening PCAP files with Wireshark

Until recently, when I would capture a PCAP file from a device through the web GUI, I would be able to click on the PCAP (packet capture) file and it would open the file in Wireshark. As of this week, it stopped doing that and now only allows me to save the file and I need to look for the file and double click on it to open the file. I lose a lot of time doing that. Looked at the mime types already installed but there is no pcap to allow me to associate with Wireshark. I am running macOS Monte Rey on an M1 platform. I was working fine before.

Thanks

Using the procedure outlined in the link below should add that file type.

This did not fix my problem. I do not see PCAP as an option for the file and removing the "handlers.json" did not prompt for what to do with the file. I am not sure what happened because it was working before.
