When I want to add my Dropbox account in the settings, I always get this error message. I tried several types of internet connections.

I am not 100 % sure that this is a problem of SailfishOS (v2.0.1.) But else, I have no problem accessing my Dropbox account, e.g. Cargo Dock.

Has anybody else encountered the same problem?

No problem here. Signed in first go, uploads correctly. All good. (Sailfish

Yes, I got the same error several times. I put the phone away, thinking I'll try it later on a different connection, but then later when I opened the phone again I noticed that it had eventually logged in; the dropbox account was working.

When is that error message displayed? Is it when you're trying to add the account (via Settings|Accounts) or when you're trying to share a picture to Dropbox via the Gallery? Or something else?

If it is displayed during the Settings|Accounts flow, is it displayed in the webview subsequent to entering your username and password, or is it displayed after that webview completes and the UI transitions to a native Sailfish OS view?
