That did it! I'd like to thank you big time for making this happen - it may seem like a small thing but for a lot of us (or speaking for myself, I) really like Dropbox's native functionality we've had til now - running along quietly up in the menu bar, integrated as a folder in Finder. I appreciate this. Thanks again.

I've never posted on this forum. But I've used Dropbox (currently Plus) for seven years or so and it's been nearly all good times. However, yesterday I discovered I somehow "opted in" to Dropbox's early-adopter beta program - I am still not clear how - and that the "File Browser App" version of Dropbox, which I have no interest in using, starts up whenever I reboot my Mac. This includes an icon in my dock. I have to manually kill the program, as many others here have stated, before moving on. Last night I told support I'd like to opt out; opting in wasn't intentional. The support person helping me was very courteous and kindly obliged. Problem is, the file browser and icon in dock both still fire up when I restart my Mac. Based on the lack of any response to my last email last night - explaining the change did not roll back and that I want the old functionality back - it doesn't seem like I'm on a path towards resolution. I can live with the current issue with Smart Sync on Mac OS running APFS (discussed at length on a different thread) awhile longer, as development to allow Smart Sync to calculate files in a way that aligns with APFS's calculations isn't a slam dunk. However, this "file browser launches at startup no matter what you do" thing is unacceptable. A checkbox somewhere in Preferences disabling that functionaling obviously would not be difficult. Since I now see how many others are having this same issue, I'n hoping somebody from Dropbox can help me truly roll back to a version that does not force this new "file browser" app to start up in the dock. I've already tried restarting the app after I was "rolled back." That didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
