You want the animated gif to function. The default file association for gif in Windows 7 is the other installed apps for viewing photos, like the Live Photo viewer, and others like the Office Viewer. If you want the browser to open them by default, you must reset the .gif entension.

Control Panel/Default Programs/'change a file association or protocol'/Scroll down to .GIF, and hightlight it, to then click the "Change" button, and choose the browser, (like Internet Explorer.)
