Playing .swf files?

Hi, i was able to save flash games using firefox and they saved in .swf format. i used to be able to play them just fine from my desktop but after uninstalling Macremedia flash MX it seems they are not working anymore, they ask me to choose a program to open in.

What do i have to download to get this working, when i try macremedia flash player it downloads it so IE can play flash's, but still not my saved .swf files.

If you've downloaded the Flash Player, you should be able to drag and drop .swf to any Internet Explorer (or other browser) window and the .swf will play from there.

Thanks, good idea but why can't i play as i did before, without having to drag into IE?
