When performing a search in my account online the results don't show correctly, any ideas?

New member | Level 2

When doing a search of my dropbox account in my browser, the search page is returned with results. When I move my mouse to hover over the file names that are returned, the page disappears.

I'm using a chrome browser on windows 10. I've tried clearing my history: no effect.

Re: dropbox browser page disappears

Have you tried another browser yet? Chrome is the most problematic for the Dropbox website. It works fine, usually, but can occasionaly choke.

No, not yet. But I just realised I can do a search in the desktop app—and that works just fine. So that sounds like my work-around.
