Dropbox desktop app launching on its own

Explorer | Level 4

MacOS 10.14.5 on MBP (2017) Dropbox version 77.4.131

This morning, the desktop app has started launching on its own. I have it start up in background. It launches into the foreground.

I have quit it each time. The period seems intermittent.

I have not restarted the MBP for a few days now.

What has changed at Dropbox for this to occur?

Hey there @alitchfi, sorry to hear that.  
 
Could you please try rebooting your computer and see if that does the trick?
 
Let me know how it goes!

I have restarted but it had stopped launching into the foreground. I still don't know why the app did this. It has not done that before.

Thanks for writing back, @alitchfi

Could you please clarify if the desktop app is still launching in the foreground? Were you able to resolve your concern by rebooting your computer?

It had stopped launching in the foreground of its own "volition". Restarting will have had no effect in this instance.
