Confluence 5.2.3 does want to open flash (swf) attachment.


We have our old confluence server 3.5.17 that was able to dynamically open/play flash/swf attachments in browser window. Now that we have upgraded to Confluence 5.2.3 when I click flash/swf attachment. It always ask me for to save the file instead of dynamically opening the flash/SWF attachment in another browser window.

Just want does this feature still work in Confluence 5.2.3 do I have something turn off, or is there a work around so we can dynamically open flash/swf attachments.

Thanks for any advice
