How simple. The beta version worked like a charm. Thank you, Ed. You have far surpassed the quality of tech support offered by the company.

Installing the beta version worked for me too. Thank you!

My problem arouse after I upgraded from OS X 10.9.5 to OS X 10.11 and downgraded again back to 10.9.5. Reason for downgrading was a problem with signing in to my iCloud on 10.11. After the downgrade, Dropbox didn't work in the way Chris S. describes at the start of this thread.
