Error: File type must be text/x-bibtex

When I (try to) upload my .bib file, I get the following error message: Error: File type must be text/x-bibtex. The .bib file I use is one generated by JabRef to contain my publications only. How do I fix this error?

This seems to be an issue with your browser, since it is the browser who determines the mime-type based on the file extension. Which OS and browser do you use?
I am getting the same error with Chrome and Safari on MacOS.
Hi Mark, could you send me the file you are testing with?
Yes; where do I send it?
Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get it. Thanks.
We were able to debug and resolve this. The issue was that MacOS doesn't seem to recognize the extension .bib as bibtex files.
