When I attempt to play or stream music from a web site, I no longer have the
options of "open, save, cancel", I only have the options of "save" or
"cancel." The dialog box indicates that "m3u" or m3ulist" files are an
unknown type.. This wasn't always the case, at one point things worked just
fine.

How do I get my computer to recognize and "open" these files without having
to "save" them and play them from the saved file? Once saved, they will play
in Windows Media Player.

Thanks.

Media Player/ Tools menu has an Options item, with a filetypes tab, Check the MP3 audio checkbox.
