I am using firefox on linux mint and when I try to preview .docx file on dropbox by clicking on it, it just tries to download and does not show a preview. Does this have to do with mimeTypes.rdf configuration? Or does anyone know how to fix this?

The file downloads immediately on chromium as well.
