Just FYI - I was setting up IP Scanner today and enabled the feature to sync custom names via Dropbox, which opened a window in Safari.
Note: Safari 13 (on Mojave) was just installed automatically last night.
I was signed into Dropbox already, and it asked me if I wanted to authorize IP Scanner. When I clicked allow:
1. The folder on Dropbox _WAS_ created at ~/Dropbox/apps/IP Scanner/
2. Safari prompted me to ask if I wante to allow the web page to open IP Scanner. I said yes.
3. Nothing was added to the folder on Dropbox.
I restarted the app several times.
It kept opening the same page on Dropbox asking me to authorize IP Scanner app.
I checked and un-checked the "Sync custom names via Dropbox" item several times.
Finally I changed my default browser from Safari to Google Chrome, and did the whole process again. Google Chrome also prompted me to allow the web page to open IP Scanner.app, BUT this time it actually worked and a "MACAddressesByNetworkSegment.plist" file was created in the Dropbox folder.
