Hello, @Colleen76-18...

 

I'm not currently experiencing the problem so it's not happening to everyone.

 

Are you using the Web Interface or the Desktop Client?

 

Please post a screenshot or two so we can see first-hand what you're viewing (minus any sensitive information).

 

Thank you.

Its not an error I've ever heard of.

It is also going crazy on mine with 10 or 15 dropbox icons in the tray trying to open at once.

Do you by any chance have a screenshot (without any personal info) illustrating this? 

 

Keep me posted - thanks!
