You are opening the application "Dropbox" for the first time. (El Capitan Public Beta 3)

New member | Level 1

Hello. For the past two days when starting up and logging in to my Mac, I receive the following message:

You are opening the application "Dropbox" for the first time. Are you sure you want to open this application?

Clicking Open opens the application without any issue, but it never remembers this. So every time I start up, I see this message.

Any thoughts or workarounds?

Kind regards

Aaron

Are you using OS X 10.11 El Capitan Beta?   Because I also keep seeing it after I updated to latest beta.

same issue here. affecting a few other apps too (reeder, bartender and fantastical). Only happens to apps set to start on launch. If I disable automatic start up they launch just fine manually.

It might be related to El Capitan, I'm seeing it since the last El Capitan update as well.

Yes, I am using the El Capitan public beta version 3. I had not experienced this issue in the previous two versions.

I also see the same during startup for Lockbox along with 3 other startup applications. I suspect the cause is the same for all applications. Also running 10.11 Beta 15A243d

This is just something I noticed in that forum, I have not tried the resolution, and cannot vouch for it. In short use at your own discretion.
