Cannot login to dropbox

Cannot login to dropbox

I have a macbook pro and I cannot get dropbox to login to my account. I have used dropbox on this computer for a long time. I have tried all re-install/terminal command suggestions on the forums and nothing works. It says: "waiting to be linked to a dropbox account" and in Preferences>Account it says: "This computer isn't linked to an account". And I can't get the login/sign-in window to pop up so that I can type in anything...what do I do?

Hi C. Howard,

 

Thanks for the response, at least I'm not the only one with this problem! If you find a solution, please post it here, I have a feeling that a lot of people are experiencing the same thing. I even tried downloading an older version of dropbox and I actually got a login screen, BUT, as soon as I typed my login and password it blocked me saying: "You have an older version of dropbox, install the new one" which didn't work. Please include this thread if you contact them
