Joe, if you're familiar with git, submit a pull request to my repo. If not, please submit an issue and I'll have a look. Also please post back here with the LC bug report number.

I had some problems with the use of:
put it into URL ("file:myDownloadedFile.txt")
Your solution works fine, but for future reference, the issue wasn't in the Dropbox extension but rather in the use of "file:" as the URL designator. That only works with text files. If you need to work with binary files, use "binfile" :

"binfile:myDownloadedFile.txt"
