Same problem. Business Account. It's a real pain in the ass to have to relauch finder all of the time and then try to sync files locally just to preview a simple .jpg!

 

Please fix Dropbox!

We have this problem as well. As a design agency, this is extremely annoying, since we depend on image previews a lot. And we can't seem to figure out how to fix the problem. Turning Dropbox finder integration off/ on does not always work. This problem occurred after the Mojave update. Any information about how to solve this problem is highly appreciated.

I'm just testing Dropbox for business and ran into the same issue. Highly annoying because it affects the whole computer, not only Dropbox files.

Hi all, just a brief update here.
 
We’ve received some reports from users that updating to the latest Mojave update, which can be found here, appears to have resolved this.
 
If any of you get the chance to do so, please let me know if this helps or not!

Nope, the Mojave update doesn't fix it . Still annoying thumbnails. So frustrating... I had this problem also with High Sierra.

I'm experiencing the the same thing but it is just JPEGs. 

Both quick look and the right preview pane in the Finder just show the spinning loader. 

I have seen suggestions on how to fix this including removing the DropboxQL.qlgenerator file from ~/Library/QuickLook. Neither of those locations exist on my install and I checked on an installation with HIgh SIerra. Not there either.
