.swf issues

My web browsers have suddenly decided they can't open up .swf that are saved to my flash drive. Works just fine if the files are embedded on a website, and my flash players are all up to date, but it still won't open them--all it does is pop up a save option asking me if I want to save it to the hard drive or open it up with a program of my choice.

Why the hell is it doing this and how the hell do I get it to stop?

What if you open the file directly from the File menu item in the browser?

It's likely that your file associations were changed somehow. If you get the prompt to open it with a program of your choice, you can choose the browser from the list. Does that fix the problem?

Still does it. I've since had to get a flash player just to open them again.
