Web Interface Doesnt Open Folder

New member | Level 1

I can connect to the web interface but when I click on any folder it doesnt load. If I type the search bar the files will show up, but once again when I click on an item nothing happens. It doesnt show any message other than Loading.

Does it still happen when you try another browser?

Hi @RichR! Tried firefox and it worked. But it is not my deafult browser. I use Chrome, what should I do?

It seems that Chrome has been the common denominator lately with the browser issues. If it's not a browser addon that's blocking the page, then it could be something that Dropbox needs to look at. You might try disabling all addons in Chrome and see if it works then.

Disabling the extensions worked. Thanks!

Chrome opens dropbox.com and sub folders for me on a Windows XP sp3 system. Also SeaMonkey(firefox) works perfectly.

Why doesn't dropbox produce "strict" HTML code?
I postulate that the errors in the dropbox code make Chrome screw up:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dropbox.com%2Fhome&charset=%28detect+automatical...

And that is "transitional" HTML which lets IE and SM do whatever they please with the HTML thus leading to browser bloat.

Dropboxers, use "strict" HTML and the code will do better on more browsers, etc.

Just saying,
