Beginning on about 2/19 all custom folder icons ( folders in DB )disappeared and reverted to default icons. I tried to recopy and paste but it didn't work.
After much experimenting, I found this problem only occurs to folders in my Dropbox.
That is if I create a folder on my desktop (not in DB) and give it a custom icon. All is well. When I move the folder into DB the custom icon vanishes and reverts to the default icon.
I cannot paste a custom icon to a folder which is in DB, but if I darg folder out I can give it a custom icon. Once it goes into DB it is gone.

This should be fixed in v84, which is currently in beta. Thanks for the reports and let us know if you see issues:
here is link to QT movie demonstrating the problem.
it's not about custom icons syncing between computers. they never synced across computers, but i could make custom icons for folders located in Dropbox. i cannot do that as of a few weeks ago. they stopped showing custom icons and now i can no longer create them for any folder in dropbox. i can make custom icons on folders on my mac outside of dropbox. regardless, i made sure my laptop and desktop are both running the 70.4.93 version. please send an email ticket if you think that's appropriate. thanks.
