Add DropBox Remote

I've verified that the https://rclone.org/dropbox/ and https://rclone.org/drive/ procedures worked on HiPerGator. Here's dropbox remote setup:

1. Start an Open OnDemand Desktop session: https://ood.rc.ufl.edu/pun/sys/dashboard/batch_connect/sys/bc_desktop/hipergator/session_contexts/new

2. Once the session starts connect to it and open a terminal by clicking on its icon.

3. Use 'New > Open Tab' menu option or 'Ctrl+Shift+T' key combo in the terminal to make sure you have two tabs

Tab1: module load rclone

Tab2: module load ubuntu firefox

to start a web browser.

4. Follow the https://rclone.org/dropbox/ procedure. Note that the ubuntu module has chrome and firefox browsers, so the web authentication part of defining a remote can be done by pasting the generated link into it.
