Dropbox history shows incorrect content in browser viewer

Helpful | Level 5

I have an Excel file that is identical across all my devices. When I look at the file history in a browser and click on "current version", it shows the wrong content. I'm usng Windows 10. I've tried it in FireFox and Chrome, same results.

What's wrong?

... in fact, all the previous versions show the same content in the browser. But if I click on the download button on the current or an earlier version, it's correct.

Just one thing to check @blearyeye, could you try and do that in an incognito / different browser? Just wondering if its a cache issue. 

If it is still the same possibly try logging a ticket and asking for help ( to do so and to track). I do wonder, however, if you only see the version which is currently in Dropbox rather than previous versions.
