Opening Word Documents

​Greetings all!

I am having trouble opening Word documents (specifically Word 2007 .docx​).
After saving to "Downloads" and right clicking "open with", several options
come up (including "document.XML" , none of which are able to open it.
Also, after opening Abiword and trying to access the document there, I
cannot open it.

The only way I can open these docs is by hovering over it in the Gmail
attachment and choosing "Google Docs" which then opens a new window in
Firefox, from where I can then view, and print, the document.

But I would appreciate being able to also open them in Abiword.

Thanks in advance for your help.
