Opening existing animated GIF in Fireworks CS6

When opening existing animated GIF in Fireworks CS6, it always flattens it, opening it in its first frame. All other frames (states) are lost. What am I doing wrong?

    Is there a particular GIF that's giving you trouble?


    Normally, the frames of an animated GIF should load into the States panel. Each state has its own Layers panel content, etc.

    That's perplexing. I haven't used Dreamweaver in a while. Even though Fireworks is listed in Preferences as my primary image editor, I'm seeing Photoshop on the Edit button, at least with an animated GIF on the page. If I ctrl-click on the image, I can choose to edit it in Fireworks, in which case it opens normally, with all the states preserved.
