Office Macro forced downloading a file instead of opening it with Excel Edited

Hello there,


we just updated our confluence from Version 7.4.0 to 7.11.2. Since then the Office Connector macro for Excel is not working as expected.

Steps to reproduce:

- add an Excel file (.xlsx) to the attachments of the confluence site 

- add the "Office Excel" macro to a confluence site

- configure the correct file in the macro

- publish the changes

- click on the "edit" Button


Expected results:

- pop-up shows of which asks to open Excel

actually results:

- download for the attached Excel file started


Is this a bug or are there settings, we have to change to get the expected result?

We can't use the Companion-App, so we decided to activate the feature "Office Connector". Using the App is therefore not a solution to our problem.

We are using Microsoft Edge browser.


Thanks for your help.
