Dropbox bug? on M1 Mac/macOS 11.2x/Dropbox 118.3.448.
Each finder windows/tab starts a new DropBoxFinderExtention process that takes 60meg memory. Since most Mac users do not reboot computers you can after a couple of days have 200+ dropbox processes that take over 60 meg each. Over 12 gig of real memory.
Even if I quit dropbox, dropbox will create a new dropboxfinder extension process for each finder window.
For example. I have a finder with 5 tabs = dropbox thinks it's fun to create 5 processes. I close the finder and open later a new finder window with 5 tabs. 5 more dropbox processes. Total 10.
Is this intentional? And how do I stop dropbox from creating new processes for each finder tab/window? (the same "bug" exist on other sync application, so maybe a new process per finder tab is required thanks to macOS sandboxing. But why cant dropbox kill its process when a finder window is closed/the extension process not needed.
