If I select to "link & share" a folder I am sending to Client A, can all my other clients (with links to their own folders) also see Client A's folder? (even though it's nothing to do with them!). Clients don't always have Dropbox on their computers so I "link" them.  It's just a security question I was worried about.

I had to open the console, import jquery, and have it click all the links for me. This will have it click "x" and the confirm button every second:

var jq = document.createElement('script');
jq.src = "https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.4/jquery.min.js";
document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(jq);
// ... give time for script to load, then type.
jQuery.noConflict();
setInterval(function(){jQuery('.remove-link')[0].click();setTimeout(function(){jQuery('.button-primary')[0].click()}, 500);}, 1000)

Thanks James. Quite stupid dropbox can't implement a real solution.

Update:

 

Open your browser's debug/dev console and paste this:

var jq = document.createElement('script');
jq.src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.4/jquery.min.js";
document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(jq);

Hit enter, wait 2 seconds and paste this:

jQuery.noConflict();
setInterval(
	function(){
		setTimeout(function(){jQuery('.mc-overflow-button')[0].click();}, 500)
		setTimeout(function(){jQuery('.delete-link')[0].click();}, 1000);
		setTimeout(function(){jQuery('.button-primary')[0].click();}, 1500);},
 1000);

Hit enter and wait for it to finish.

This was tested 2017/04/15 on Firefox, but should work on Chrome as well.

I just tried it on Chrome.

 

I did get the error you described, but it worked anyway.

Please be careful as it will delete all your shared links! You have been warned! Works in Chrome (61.0.3163.100) maybe firefox and internet explorer but no links to test Open the browser's console window (right click anywhere and select inspect or control+shift+i) while in the shared links page. Paste the following code in the console command line, click enter and it will delete all shared links. 

 

Due to secure http loading jquery (as suggested by other post) does not work, so this option is fine with vanilla javascript. The script below simulates consecutive mouse clicks: 1. click the three dot button next to the link, 2. click the delete link button in the drop down, 3. click the delete link buttin in the pop up dialog box. Note that it will take a minute to execute all those but in the end the list shall be clear. Hope it save you some trouble... and again be careful

 

for( var index = 0; index < 1000; index++ )
{
   var dots = document.getElementById("bubbleDropdownTarget-" + index );
   if( dots == undefined ) continue;
   dots.click( );
   document.getElementsByClassName( "bubble-menu-item" )[0].click( );
   document.getElementsByClassName( "button-primary dbmodal-button" )[0].click( );
}

Hey @ProblemSolved, thanks for your contribution & posting your workaround here!  
 
I’ve accepted it as a Solution, as I had as chance to check it myself & the Javascript code worked as expected. Of course, I’d urge caution in using it on one's own Dropbox account (just rephrasing in case someone hasn’t noticed your initial warning)! 
 
Again, thanks for sharing & I hope you have a great rest of the day!

This worked for me in Chrome. Oddly it looked to not show anything happening. Ilet the window just sit there for 5 mins, came back, and copied the Links URL in a new browser tab. Now, all the links that were there are now gone, and I've confirmed I'm no longer sharing any of the links from a massive list I had. If I need to reshare, I'll do so from a new URL, but now my old boss cant steal my work from my past time with him.
