The issue you are facing:

When I create a file upload link, the profile picture does not display, and instead it is a grey circle with a question mark. This appears when the link is viewed by someone who is not logged in. I have experienced this issue on Firefox, Chrome, and Safari on both MacOS and iOS.

When I am logged in, the picture appears as it should - but the point is for me to be able to send this to others who are not registered users.

This is how it should look:

I know it does not change functionality - just looks bad. Has anyone else experienced this?

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Share folder with file upload link
  2. View from device that is not logged in

I have just upgraded to 18.05 & I am having this issue now. Also when I try to upload a profile picture I get a ‘unknown file type error’ even if the file is a jpg.
