I'm not 100% sure this hasn't been covered already (I searched a bit, but I had a little trouble filtering down to a useful number of useful results). Anyway, when I install R on Windows, the installer asks to set the default help type. For some reason, I can set it as HTML in the installer, but the results open as if help_type = "text" by default. I presume this is related to the new changes to the help. Calling help(help, help_type = "html") works as expected, so the HTML help works and I could manually fix this by setting options(help_type = "html") in a session or in my .Rprofile.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one seeing this, but for what it's worth, I also set SDI and Internet = Standard. I haven't experimented with different installation settings to see which ones work.
