How to get rid of confirmation dialogs? They return…

How to get rid of confirmation dialogs? They return…

At some point the dropbox client asked me about a deletion confirmation dialog (pretty annoying, when working from the command line) as seen in https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Installation-and-desktop-app/How-to-get-rid-of-confirmation-dialogs/... but I cancelled it and it never came back.

 

Today I just had another dialog popping up, and I'm not on a beta, I'm running version v55.4.171. Why do these dialogs come? Since I'm using dropbox to sync files between computers, now I'm going to have to go to all the remote machines and click again to no for the deletion confirmation or they start misbehaving and files won't get deleted.

Hi there, it’s possible that the app updated and forgot the previous settings for the pop-up dialog.

Do the prompts still appear when closing it and choosing to not appear again?

Not now. The first time it happened more than a month ago, so I guess the client updated and decided to ask again just for the sake of it.

Oh well, that didn't took long, got another popup today. It feels like pretty much random, since I was doing other changes earlier and didn't get the popup. Worst of all there is no global setting to disable this annoyance.

If you click ‘Don’t ask me this again’, do the prompts re-appear?

I did check it the two previous times. I checked it again now. Let's see how long it lasts.
