Bug: Dropbox gnome notifications

Bug: Dropbox gnome notifications

Nathanel T.
Helpful | Level 5

When clicking on the latest Dropbox notification that shows from the message tray on the gnome desktop, it triggers multiple nautilus windows to open if several notifications of the same nature had not been attended to and even causes gnome shell crashes.

Real life example: snapping multiple pictures while having the camera upload feature enabled will cause such a behavior.

Still an issue on Fedora 23 64bit using nautilus-dropbox-2015.10.28-1.fc10.x86_64 which seems to be the newest Dropbox version for any Linux (per the Dropbox download page).

This is a problem when someone uploads 50-100+ pictures and you have to either click to close all the windows or just kill nautilus. Is there a forked version anyone is using?

This is still a problem with Ubuntu 16.04, Gnome 3.20, and the latest version of dropbox.
