Chrome Browser Startup Tab

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I'm on Ubuntu linux 19.04 and Chrome browser Version 77.0.3865.75, and whenever I boot up Ubuntu/Chrome it adds a Dropbox tab asking me to log into Dropbox. I use Dropbox intermittently, not regularly, and I don't want this tab on startup. How do I get rid of it?

Hey there @gusz !

Thanks for posting about this. Welcome to Dropbox Comunity. 

Seems like your Chrome loves Dropbox  Heart

Restore your browser to its default settings and disable any browser plugins. 

This should do it! Cheers.

I have a Chrome bookmark for Dropbox but no Chrome browser plugin for Dropbox. The problem started happening recently, possibly due to a Chrome upgrade. I need a solution fom someone who uses Chrome on Ubuntu/Linux

Seems like there is a Chrome specific setting that could solve this. 

I found this official Google support post about this: https://support.google.com/chrome/forum/AAAAP1KN0B0b4VAGJCd59Y/?hl=ru

I also want to add that there are indeed no Dropbox Plugins but the issue you're experiencing may be the result of coockies, a security setting or another plugin that you have installed on your browser. 

If you haven't already you can clear your browsers cache: http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache.

Hope this helps!
