With the release of macOS 12.3 in March, Apple deprecated kernel extensions used by cloud storage services like Dropbox and OneDrive, which prevented users from opening online-only files stored on Dropbox or OneDrive in third-party apps after the update.

In the meantime, Dropbox users can continue to open files online only on macOS Monterey and later by double-clicking them in the Finder app.
