    Hi everyone,

    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
    I've tried to grab a file in Safari and send it to my Dropbox, but I tap the "Open In..." button and nothing works.

    The problem happened both on my phone (3GS) and iPad (2). It only started once I updated to iOS 5.

    Help?
    Thanks.

    Thanks, but not really...

    I'm trying to locate a torrent in Safari and save it to a folder in my Dropbox (which, in turn - is being watched by Transmission on my Mac).
    I used to do it all the time before I updated, but now it's not giving me the option to save it in Dropbox...

    Same here. I uninstalled iCab and the button on the right-hand side defaults to Open in "Dropbox" and the generic "Open in..." disappears.

    Reinstalled iCab and the Open in "Dropbox" stays but the generic "Open in..." re-appears but doesn't work.

    So, for me, the default was "Open in Evernote" (god knows why I'd want to open a torrent in Evernote). I uninstalled Evernote, and it changed to "Open in Dropbox", and the generic is gone.

    Reinstalled Evernote and I now get an "Open in Dropbox" and an "Open In..." which doesn't do anything when I tap it.

    Yeah same scenario... seems that it's not coping when there's more than one option. Must be a bug. Guess it's worth reporting it...

    No, but what happens for me is the first time I try "Open in.." and then "Dropbox", Dropbox opens, and then when I tap the folder that I want to save it in, Dropbox crashes. I then go back to Safari, repeat the process, and the 2nd time, it always works. So there's definitely something going on between Safari and Dropbox. If I say "Open in..." and then "Goodreader" I don't get any problems.
