Dropbox not opening on Mac Snow Leopard after latest update (July 2015)

Did you tried installing the older version as my post says?: <link removed by forum moderator>

After I installed this older version, the update still went through automatically, but the issue did not persisted. All the files were synced.

I now have Mac OS X 10.7 and I haven't experience this issue again.

I have a Mac 3.2 Intel core i3 running Snow Leopard OSX 10.6.4

The minimum system requirement to run Dropbox is OSX 10.6.8

I didn't click on the old versions site because it pops up with Malware warnings. Will upgrade to 10.6.8 first, before I try anything more risky.

cheers though.

Indeed it does, accordingly the link has been removed.

A salutary reminder of the dangers of acquiring software from unauthorised sources.

I'm having the same problem 10.6.8.  Dropbox opens but won't show me any files or allow me to upload

If you're referring to the Dropbox website, then you need to use another browser. Older versions of Safari no longer display the website properly.

That solved such a huge issue. Thank you.  I was using someone else's computer.

Dear All,

My old desktop runs with 10.6.8 and the new dropbox update doesn´t work with. After reading previous comments this appears to be a common problem - is there any solution to it?

The dropbox program simply doesn´t start after installation...

Thanks, Rui

Ps. I have a very expensive application that will stop working if I upgrade my OS.
