• I installed uBlock Origin recently which might not be relevant but it's the only change I can think of that I've made to my browser. Now the SWF files on pages will go straight to downloading when opened, instead of opening in a tab.

    • Try to change the settings to stop it from blocking SWF files (possibly considered a 3rd-party extension), or try to temporarily disable uBO to see if this problem only occurs when it is enabled.

      If none of these help, check out this superuser reply to a similar question. If nothing works, try uninstalling adobe flash player and installing it again.

    • If you're using Google chrome, go to chrome://plugins/ and tick "Always allowed to run" for Adobe Flash Player. That worked for me when the same thing happened.
