Launch DropBox Website opens Dreamweaver - WTF? - 11/06/12 02:08 AM

I just installed the latest DB app (1.5.45), and when I select Launch Dropbox Website from the drop-down menu, it launches DW instead of Safari. I checked prefs, and they're set properly. Any idea how to fix this?

Locate one of your .HTM and .HTML files. Do a Get Info on each and tell them to open with Safari instead of Dreamweaver, click the Change All button on each.

Of course then when you want to open one of your website files with Dreamweaver, you'll have to do a Control-click on them and do an Open With.

That's what I was thinking and not that big a deal, since I can just drag a DW file to the dock icon and it'll open properly. But I wonder why this behavior would suddenly pop up in DB. Oh well... 10Q2much. wink

Actually, screw that. I'll just bookmark the DB site 'til they fix this bug.

I just got a reply on the DB Forum. It was suggested that I check my Safari prefs to make sure it was set as the default browser. I was (and always has been), but just for giggles, I reset it, and that fixed it. Go figure!
