This is almost always down to either a permissions or syncing [conflict] issue.

 

If you have setup syncing on two different Macs, you need to allow the the first one to fully sync out to Dropbox before attaching the other one to the same folder in Dropbox to prevent conflicts.

 

Try setting the sync folder to a different location in Dropbox and see if things save.

No luck yet.  I'm not using it on any other computer.  I changed folders, same behavior.  There is a Alfred.alfredpreferences file in the folder.  Any other ideas?

Could you try de-syncing... set the folder back to somewhere like ~/Documents (outside of the Dropbox folder)

Okay, did that, set it to a local folder, everything working fine.  Set it back to an empty unused Dropbox folder and same problem, changes were not being saved.
