Same issue here but for video which is where this issue gets so bad that I can no longer open older project files that reference offline content. Essentially Premiere pushes Dropbox to sync the data (which can end up being hundreds of GBs!)
Wish Adobe could pay attention on this issue.
Whenever Adobe products activate file browsing function such as "Open, Export, Save or Save As...", Adobe will trigger Dropbox to recall all the online-only files in that folder. The more online-only files in there, the longer we have to wait until all the files finish recalling.
I've contacted Dropbox's technical service and they said there is nothing they can do for helping stop Adobe from "scanning" files which will trigger Dropbox to recall those online-only files.
It has become an annoying daily process as long as I use Export or those functions above.
Hope Adobe could help us deal with this issue.
I found a solution for this.
In Illustrator you can do this:
Go to Preferences>File Handling and Clipboard>Number of Recent Files to Display (0-30) and change the value, either 0 or 1 if you want to have the recent file screen to show at all, 0 will show you just a black screen.
This should fix the issue.
