In Firefox, You can use the view-source: psuedo protocol.
Enter into the URL address bar:
I'm not getting this from a server, which is probably part of the problem. I tried this: view-source:C:\[some local folder names]\direct-message.js
Got a listing of the .js source code again,

What about entering the location of the file from your computer in Firefox's Awesome Bar, and hit Enter? What happens?
I get the source code. I apparently need for the browser to execute the js to produce a formatted document.
Did you save the page as "Web page, complete" ?
Can you attach a screenshot?
- use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot
Twitter "support" sent me the media and some .js files. No html or css.
What instructions are in the readme file?
Hi jjr2, the zip file should contain a ton of content. Just to review what I did to test this -- I don't tweet but I have linked another site to my Twitter account, so Twitter has stored that -- here's what I did:
(1) Open Twitter settings, scroll to the bottom, use the button in"Your Tweet Archive" (screenshot #1, upper part)
(2) Launch the link in my email to get a download button, and save the ZIP file (screenshot #1, lower part)
(3) Extract the entire contents of the zip file to a new folder, which has a main index.html file (screenshot #2)
(4) Double-click the index.html file to open it in Firefox (screenshot #3)
Thanks for the help, guys. Finally harrassed Twitter support (after trying for around 2 years) into sending me a working archive. Don't know what that other mess was.
