Dropbox "problem completing this request" issue

  • Whenever I log into Dropbox from Opera browser I get the error message "there was a problem completing this request".
    If I open private browser window, it works.
    If I disable all extensions and turn of adblock, it still does not work ... I don't know what else to try.
    (Except use a different browser.)

    My issue looks similar to this (which was closed, no shared solution):

    Version: 46.0.2597.57 (PGO) - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 10 64-bit (WoW64)

  • Dropbox working normally here. Iā€™m always logged in on Opera desktop browser.

    Desktop program installed is version 31.4.24.

    Win10-64. 46.0.2597.57 (PGO) Norwegian.

  • Stopped working here sometime the last day(s)/week ...

  • So ... any hints on how to reset opera settings? Works like a charm in Opera on Linux. So why the issue on Windows? Seems like previous posts/threads had no luck solving this. To bad, as I'm quite happy with opera as main browser.

  • any hints on how to reset opera settings?

    Rename or delete the profile folder.

  • Interesting ...
    Moved away the Opera Stable folders from both AppData\Opera Software\Roaming Profile and ...\Local.
    Then opened Opera and accessing I was directly logged in,
    but the same error message
    "there was a problem completing this request"
    was still shown at the top of the screen ...

    Then if I log out, I'm unable to log back in ...

    Weird stuff ... no extensions installed.

  • And ... tried again, this time just emptying the Profile and Cache folders (instead of moving them away), both at the same time. And now it works again, no error ... Interesting ... šŸ˜• šŸ˜Ž ā˜•
