Why does Trello want me to save attachments when trying to open them?

What happend???

Now if I want to open an attachment while in the Trello app, it wants me to save the attahment.

Pdf´s and jpeg´s open in a view window (as it has been) but if I want to "open in new tab" it wants me to save the file! 

Excel, word and more just want me to save the file before opening it. 

This wasn´t a problem 2 weeks ago and it was a problem in the browser version too, but when I cleared the browser settings it was ok again. But I don´t know how to fix it in the app.

This was a problem for our workflow some time back as well. Has to do with security. So now you see basically a thumbnail of the actual pdf instead. This can cause some of the info on the pdf to be cut off or out of view. In order to see everything on the pdf you have to download it. And most recently we've found that the pdf's that use form fields will no longer show in these thumbnails and hope to find a resolution.
