On OS X how do I get rid of this bar forever? I don't need this huge bar open in every Finder window that I've got open to my Dropbox folder, but the only option in Preferences I can find is to turn off Finder Integration and I don't want to lose all of the functionality just to get rid of this thing.
At the bottom of my list of folders, I have to collapse the bar if I want to get into one of these two folders. A UI element that impedes access to files in a program who's entire reason for existing is to access files is bad UX.
How do I get rid of that floating "Share Folder" button? (Thanks to "Scott Ashley K." above, for saving me from having to figure out how to attach images - his screenshots are EXACTLY what I'm talking about.)
Even turning off Finder integration doesn't make this thing go away.
Seriously, who thought that adding something this intrusive would be a good idea, ESPECIALLY without providing a way for people who don't want it (which I suspect is more than 90% of your users) to disable it?
I am not sure what has happened to Dropbox, but slowly it is looking and feeling more and more like a virus or Trojan horse. These hacks into the finder have me increasing worried, and this latest floating bar seems to be just the latest on a long list of issues. Seems to me that Dropbox has absolutely no respect for their users and thinks they know better.
i have been a longtime pro user but I am most likely going to cancel my account in the next day or so, unless Dropbox makes a statement on how they are going to corrrect these issues that have eroded their user base trust.

This is such a painful step backwards in terms of usability, it feels so janky. Please remove it, or make it easy to turn off, all of this functionality is already available from the right-click menu.
Why not work on useful features, like improving the ui for selective sync?
Alexander, here's another user giving a big thumbs down on your new floating share folder button. Can't say I disagree, it's a ghastly idea.
