I can not login to dropbox in accounts menu.

If I try to add a dropbox account it always hangs at the login form. I can enter username and password but nothing happens after I click on login button.

Just a loading circle is displayed.

Please use tags to reflect which device you are using. Dropbox is working fine on my Jolla1.

Check [release notes] 2.2.0/Mouhijoki known issues:

  • Trouble with signing in to Dropbox account sometimes.

In my case I would rephrase sometimes to always. I did manage to re-enable my dropbox account by restoring accounts from a recent backup (xperiaX device).

Can you backup your device to dropbox? I removed the dropbox account because I could not backup to dropbox. And now I can not add my dropbox account back.

Did you test your restored dropbox account?

I figured also small problems with dropbox on the Xperia X with 2.1.4 and 2.2.0 I could workaround this problem, to change my dropbox email to google email and than signin with google.

I have the same issue after changing my dropbox account password from my PC, I cannot update it accordingly on my Sailfish X 2.2 phone : after changing it in Settings/accounts/dropbox and clicking on log in, it waits forever. Before that, backup & restore to/from dropbox worked...

Eventually, I have the same issue setting up my facebook account on my phone whiles it worked on 2.1.4
