Apparently, the problem was with the MIME type used by the browser to open the files.

The workaround to resolve this is to

edit the

sudo leafpad /usr/share/mime/packages/

/usr/share/mime/packages/ file from:

<mime-type type="application/">


<mime-type type="application/x-shockwave-flash">

and then run:

sudo update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

Some users needed to reinstall the flash player as well.
