Have you tried to download it directly to your computer, as opposed to the dropbox? 

That's how i do it. After you click on the download, it asks me If i want it to my dropbox, or to my computer. I choose computer and once it's finished download, which takes about 3 seconds for me, I then open it and it works.

Now, whenever i close it for the day, and want access later, I click on the open office icon on my desktop and on the bottom left there's an icon that looks like a yellow folder. It has a drop down menu and I simply click on whatever files i want. All of the downloads are stored there.

Open office is an application or a tool, not a browser. Unless I'm missing something here, meaning open office has a section that connects to the Internet. That would be a first for me, but then again, what do I know?  lol

You probably didn't, I once explained to someone how "find and replace" in Notepad could be used to exchange numbers in a wheel and they then asked me how they would use it to write a totally new wheel with different guarantees. Oogle

No, direct is the correct word, I just didn't remember the right word, so I said computer, same thing. Did you try by using the direct?

So are you telling me that I can access the Internet using open office? That's a first..lol

I wasn't aware open office was connected to the Internet, however this explains why I see open office refreshing itself from time to time. I just thought it was having hiccups.Green laugh

No, I've accessed the Internet from all kinds of documents including text and pdf files when they had a link in them, you just have to know what you're dealing with.
