Re: HTML file doesn't open anymore, as instead browser suggests to download html file

HTML file doesn't open anymore, as instead browser suggests to download html file

Maris S.

I have HTML file in my Public folder. I shared this public link to make HTML file available for everyone who access it through dropbox link. So far it worked perfectly, even CSS formats were loaded from x.css file, which also is located in same Public folder.

Today I noticed that this link doesn't show HTML page in browser, but it's offered to download it as file. In my opinion that's a bug.

Dropbox announced at the start of September that they would be discontinuing the rendering of HTML files as of October 1st due to abuse.

Its not a bug, its deliberate - HTML files now download rather than get displayed in the browser.
