Dropbox not working from Windows App
I wonder if this is similar to the existing question about Dropbox not working from the MacOS app?..
From the web interface, I can click to add a note, choose to upload a file as a note, then choose Dropbox as the source location. A popup window lets me navigate my Dropbox account to look for a file.
However, in the latest Windows app (188.8.131.52), I click on the link to choose Dropbox, and a popup window asks me to sign in to Dropbox. So I click on "Sign in", and a window opens in my web browser (Firefox, in case it makes a difference). The URL is https://www.dropbox.com/dropins/login_popup. A red message appears at the top of the page that it cannot find the parent window. There's a sign-in space on the right, but logging in with my Dropbox credentials just leads to another message that "There was a problem completing this request", and the page then refreshes to give me the same login prompt again.
It seems, but I could be wrong, that the app is handling Dropbox authentication as if it were the web interface. It tries to open a jquery dialog to sign in to Dropbox. However I'm not in a browser, so the dialog URL is passed to my default browser instead. However by this point it's lost any DOM connection to the calling "web page" (the app), so can't log me in and pass data to the app.
