Dropbox create a new homepage on my browser

Hi -

Last week I created a Dropbox account using Firefox on my Arch linux machine and from what I can see it all (Dropbox) works as advertise, except that now, when I boot my machine and fire up the browser, I am immediately directed to the Dropbox login page.  I looked at my Settings and see my previous selection. So I have to ask if this is a user error (I don't think so), or something intentional, behind the scenes with the Dropbox app.  Any thoughts about how I eliminate that are welcome.

Hey @rsv869, welcome to the Dropbox Community.

 

Not really sure how that might have happened, if I'm honest, as Dropbox doesn't have a feature that would allow this.

 

Can you perhaps clear your browser's cache, to see if that helps?

 

Let me know what you find.

thanks for the reply.

Turns out that the Dropbox app had inserted itself into the Autostart.  Not sure how or why, but it's fixed.

thx
