Dashboard not updating when uploading new files and when creating new folders

Dashboard not updating when uploading new files and when creating new folders

Hi. I'm using the web version of DropBox and when I create new folder the dashboard does not update. I can see the notification that the folder has been created but cannot see it on the dashboard. I have to refresh the browser to see my changes.

The same happens when I upload files using drag  & drop and when I delete a file. The dashboard does not update.

I'm using Google Chrome browser Version 61.0.3163.100

Really appreciate your help because it is very annoying.

It's working fine for me in Chrome v61.0.3163.100. Have you tried clearing your cache/browsing history yet? Or disabled any extensions that may be interfering?

What are the types of extensions that may interfere? I've tried it on several different laptops, no extenstions and it still doesn't update the view.

Clearing the cache and browing history improved performance for me.
