Can't sign in using Opera browser

Can't sign in using Opera browser

Ursus M.
New member | Level 1

I can sign into my Dropbox with no issues when using Firefox.  I am trying out Opera browswer on my desktop (NOT Android).  It will not allow me to sign in.  I am manually entering the correct email and password (quadruple-checked) with no luck.  When I manually enter the same exact email and password using Friefox, everything is fine.  Other log-in's for other sites work with Opera.  I am puzzled.  I don't want to have to maintain a separate browsr for a single site.  Any suggestions?

Same issue here. Its annoying to need a separate browser just for dropbox.

I'm having the same exact issue.  It is SO annoying that I have to switch to the Firefox browser just to access my Dropbox account!  It's not a password issue; in fact, I can't even click on the field to have a password change email sent to me in Opera.
I wonder if any of the Opera devs are actualy reading these help forums?  I see it's been months since this issue was raised with not even any suggestions of an answer.

Has there been any further information on this issue? I'm not able to access my Dropbox files in Opera either.

Hey there (@MarionGC), while dropbox.com is fully supported using the two latest versions of most modern browsers (eg. Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Safari), I can also make sure to pass your interest along to the development team for future reference. Happy Friday!
