Why can't I share any folders on my account?

Why can't I share any folders on my account?

Dropbox has worked great for many years for me. As of today I cannot Share any folders and I can't figure out why.

It sounds like the browser isn’t able to render the page, or the connection is slow somehow.
 
Could you try switching browsers to see if this helps? 
 
Otherwise, use incognito/private browsing mode without any extensions running, clearing your cache and even resetting your browser entirely. 
 
Keep me posted with any updates!

Hi there, could you let me know the exact message you’re getting when trying to share a folder?

Thanks for your quick response.

I put a check mark next to the folder then hit the Share button. That usually takes me to a window where I can type in the address of the person I want to send the folder to.

When I'm in that window it will not accept an e-mail address.

At the bottom of the window I see the 3 dots darkening and lightening.
