Dropbox not working on 45.7.0 PPC 10.4.11

Since yesterday, march 2, I can't access my Dropbox through TenFourFox browser v 45.7.0 or any other version. Dropbox on TenFourFox will only show the first 25-30 files and folders in my Dropbox-folder and from there on I just get a spinning wheel in the buttom of my Dropbox webpage. It worked fine on march 1.

I have tried different computers, even OS X 10.6.8 on an Intel mac with Safari, and it is the same problem. Chrome on 10.6.8 seems to work with Dropbox though.

TenFourFox was the absolutely last shot at getting Dropbox on Tiger and now it is gone it seems. Thats a disaster.

Anybody else have that problem?

Kind Regards Mikael

    Mikael, I don't use Dropbox. Do you have a Dropbox site which is publically accessible and exhibits the problem? I would like to have a closer look at this and do some testing.

    Hi Chris. I actually solved it. After much frustration I cleared all my settings, cache, cookies etc etc in TenFourFox and restarted and suddenly it worked. I dont know why. Maybe some kind of setting was screwed up but I hadnt touched anything....
    But TenFourFox behaved exactly the same in Safari on an Intel-mac running OS X 10.6.8. Så maybe Dropbox thought it was an older Safari-browser trying to access their site on both computers? 
    And, no, I do not have anything public on Dropbox. And I do believe that in order to see the problem one should have a huge Dropbox folder with a lot of files.
    And while you are here I want to thank you so much for the good work with TenFourFox. Its a life saviour for me and the last browser that can connect to Dropbox and Facebook on a 10.4.11 OS X. Please dont stop develop it.
    And yes, I also use TenFourBird as my emailclient at my designstudio :-D
    Il very grateful for your effort.
    Have a nice weekend.

    That is, of course, the best possible solution to the problem. Glad it's working again. And: You're welcome!
