Moving Hundreds of Files on Web Doesn't Work

Level 3

I only use the web interface because I use all sorts of computers and devices to access my Dropbox account.

Can anyone confirm that moving a few hundred files (say between 500 and 1000) at a time doesn't work reliably in the web interface because that's what I'm finding.  Wondering if there's any "fixes", like using certain browsers, etc.  So far the only think that works for me is to do it in chunks of 100 to sometimes 200 files will work.
