In Mac OS 10.7, when I right click a file in Dropbox folder, there's a "Dropbox" option which could share files or get the URL of the file. Also there's a "Dropbox" button in Finder's toolbar.

But in 10.8, that feature disappeared.

How can I share files using Dropbox by right clicking in Finder?

What feature is missing? Right click on a file to share, or the button in the Finder toolbar? Or are both features missing? What is your Dropbox software version number? – Pro Backup Aug 4 '12 at 12:36
@ProBackup The issue is answered below (new version needed for ML). Happens with Dropbox on every major OS X update. – patrix Aug 4 '12 at 12:53
