Tutorials and Howtos should only relate to Pale Moon, and not to third party applications. e.g.: Don't post a Howto for configuring your firewall.
If you have a question how to do something, you should use one of the support boards, not this board. It is meant for people to document and post instructions.

Dropbox - what to do when you can't press the upload button anymore

As the topic says, here the solution for everyone who is having that issue too.

Dropbox needs a new user agent override, the built inside one in Pale Moon (native one) creates issues.

1) go into about:config

2) search for: general.useragent.override.dropbox.com

3) double click it

4) change the upcoming entry into: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

or

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:3.4) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/99.0 PaleMoon/27.8.0a1

Enjoy :)

Patches welcome to make this an override update in our code.

THX Sajadi,

the first override worked for me in Pale Moon 27.7.2 Win-32.
With the second one (which I tried first) the sign-in page was without mouseclick function; not even the cookie notification could be clicked off.
