Not sure if it's the same underlying issue, but I am experiencing the same behavior on Microsoft Edge (Canary) 79.0.309.71 using Mac OS 10.15.2.
Google Chrome 79.0.3945.130 shows the "Show in Finder" option as expected, but Edge does not. I am signed into my Dropbox for Business acount on both browsers accessing the same JPG file.
Hey there @jondotcom, I hope you're well today!
I just moved your post here and it seems like you're having a slightly different issue than the original thread you posted in.
As a first step, can you just make sure that you don't have any pending updates for your Microsoft Edge browser? From what I could find, 80.x should be the latest version.
Let me know what you find!
@Daphne thank you for moving the post into its own thread.
To answer your question, I am running the latest version of Edge.
When viewing a file on dropbox.com in Edge, either through the right-click context menu ("View on Dropbox.com") or via a shared link from a team member to a file that is stored in my Dropbox, it fails to show "View in Finder".
A few other details:
Microsoft Edge / FireFox / Safari
Thanks for getting back to me with those screenshots @jondotcom!
Can you let me know if you have Flash Player 10 or higher also installed for your browser? It will also need to be enabled for the Dropbox website.
If you're still having issues after this, can you try temporarily disabling any antivirus or firewall programs to see if that helps?
Keep me posted!
@Daphne I can confirm I'm running Flash, as evidenced by this Flash test provided by Adobe:
To enable Flash, I had to turn on the following setting in Edge:
Then after visiting the Flash test page on Adobe's site I was prompted by the website to allow the Flash plugin to run:
After I allow it, I get the confirmation above.
However, at no point am I ever prompted by the Dropbox site to allow the Flash plugin to run, and the "Show in Finder" doesn't show in my list of options on files on dropbox.com.
Lastly, I am not running any firewall or anti-virus software. I only have uBlock Origin (ad block browser plug-in) installed, though it's disabled.
Thanks for trying that out @jondotcom!
Can you let me know if you see the jigsaw icon appear in your address bar at all when visiting www.dropbox.com?
Are you able to specifically "Allow" the Dropbox website through the settings?
@Daphne I do not get the jigsaw icon or a prompt on the Dropbox website. Also, there is no way to manually add allowed websites to Flash in Microsoft Edge; they get added when you "Allow" the plug-in to run when being prompted.
Being prompted by www.google.com to run Flash in Microsoft Edge for MacOS:
Not being prompted by Dropbox.com to run Flash in Microsoft Edge for MacOS:
