Upload status box rapidly flickering

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Starting yesterday, and after restarting Dropbox, computer, etc., whenever I go to upload a file to Dropbox, the small rectangular box that appears at bottom of Dropbox window to let me know how much time is left for upload flickers very rapidly.  If I really focus, I can figure out what the greyed out time left is within the flickering box, and the uploading of 10GB files is not as frequently successful, but is still working somewhat. 

Any clues???

Hey all,

Apologies for not replying sooner - we did push a fix for this earlier in the week, and the issue causing the upload progress bar on dropbox.com to flicker should be fixed now. If anyone is still seeing this occur please let me know, thanks!

I've got the same issue. Had a large upload that was supposedly done but is nowhere to be found. The flickering is non-stop and I have not been able to find a workaround.

Exactly the same behaviour here ... in both Windows 10 and OSX environments. Extremely troublesome.

Hey guys, thanks for the reports!

As I've been able to reproduce this on my end just now on Chrome {Version 73.0.3683.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)}, I'd urge you to log a ticket with our team so we can investigate further. 

Let me know the ticket IDs here so I can follow up with you internally please. 

I'm merely asking as I'd like to bring this under the attention of a higher level technician and your reports will be extemely valuable in getting this resolved as soon as possible. 

You can log a ticket with our team through the following page:

https://www.dropbox.com/support

Make sure to include which specific browser you noticed this on and if you've already done some basic troubleshooting (like clearing your browser's cache, incognito window and/or completely other browsers).

If any of you stumble upon an issue while doing so, do let me know here and I'll reach out from my end instead.

Attempts to log a ticket were unsuccessful as the dialogue requires a device to be selected and the software would not accept any attempt to enter any of the devices shown. Unhelpful.

Thanks for pinging me on this one @Rat - I just sent you an email so we can look into it.

Take a look at your inbox (ticket with ID: 9103622) and we'll take it from there. 

On a side note to all affected users, our team is currently aware and we're already looking into this. 

I'll update the thread with specifics once I have more information to share. 

Thanks for your patience and cooperation too!

Hey all,

Thank you for this report! As Walter mentioned, we've been able to reproduce the 'flickering' behaviour internally, and the engineering team responsible for the website uploader have been notified to investigate and resolve the issue. 

I've also checked our debug logs for the Dropbox users who have posted on this thread, and I don't see any issue with incomplete uploads. From what we can see this is only a visual issue with the upload progress bar, however if anyone is experiencing problems with the actual upload of files then please log a ticket with our support team for further investigation.

I'll update this post once I have an update on the flicker issue. 

Thanks!
