animated gifs do not work on this site, but they once did
3 months ago

I use animated gifs to illustrate technical points and have always found that a useful technique. Back before the new and improved site editor and viewer was released, these worked inline.

Now, they do not work inline and they do not work in the slide show viewer either.

If I upload them to the site from my computer, they are completely disabled.

But if I upload them from my web gallery, they work fine when "original" is selected, as they are then displayed by the browser itself without the crippling effect of the editor.

Can we please get this fixed? It is obviously a trivial feature since all the browsers display animated gifs by default.
