Unexpected behaviour when downloading HTML files

Shian Su
Hello,

After updating my local Galaxy instance to the latest stable release,
I've noticed that clicking the floppy-disk download icon on a history
item of html type no longer downloads all the files in the relevant
directory. Instead it opens up the html page with broken links. However
upon going back into the Galaxy page and clicking download for the
second time it reverts back to the old behaviour of downloading the html
directory in a zip file, from the second time onwards it maintains this
behaviour. Is this how it's intended to work? If so then is there
intention to remove the ability to download the html directory?

Regards,
Shian Su

Hi Shian,

I can reproduce the behavior on the public Main server (usegalaxy.org)
as well. It is unintentional to my knowledge. I have opened a bug ticket
to track the issue, and you can also follow it here:
https://trello.com/c/Y0K7C7ay

Thanks for reporting the problem! If there is more to share, our
development team will add more to this thread, and/or to the ticket.

Take care,

Jen
