I have read in a previous response that the red box with the white #1 means I have a notification. However, when I click on my DropBox icon it opens empty except for the movng grey squares that form the DropBox icon. I don't see anywhere anything that says notifications.
You are at the right place. Though I never encounter a situation like yours before. If you already tried to restart Dropbox, as well as your computer. You might wanna consider reinstalling the Dropbox client.
