Flash no-longer playing in Confluence 5.4.4

We upgraded from 5.1.5 to 5.4.4 over the past weekend. We have several pages with flash files attached to them. These files appear as links on the pages. In the previous version, a user would link the link and it would load in the same window and start playing.

After upgrading, when you click the link, it does not load in the window but instead it downloads. Then we have to drag and drop the downloaded file into a new window for it to play.

What changed here? What do we have to do to get back the old behavior?
