I had installed the 1.8 version and had the problems listed in the forums, so I followed the directions to revert back to 1.7.3. After that I can no longer drag and drop files from my computer to the webpage to upload them. I have to click the "upload" button to add the files. The webcam also freezes after a few seconds. If I reload the webpage, it will show again for a few more seconds, and then freeze again.
What did you already try to solve it?
Not sure what to try.
Have you tried running in safe mode?
Did running in safe mode solve the problem?
No, same issues.

Additional information about your setup
Octoprint 1.7.3, after downgrading from 1.8. Ender 3 V2.
I decided that maybe it just needs a fresh install. I wasn't worried about the plugins or files, so I got the 2022-01-28-octopi-bullseye-armhf-lite-1.0.0.img image from the downloads page. I used the Raspberry Pi Imager to install the image to the card and started the Pi back up.
Now the webpage won't work, and I get the " The OctoPrint server is currently not running" page. I ran the command given there and got the proper results, although "python" was in red at the end of the /home/pi/oprint/bin/python.
I did an FTP into the Pi and saw that the python folder wasn't there. What do I do now?
I have an update. For some reason, the page started working again. And I can upload by dragging and dropping the files onto the page. The webcam still freezes after a little while, which it didn't do before. It's not an expensive camera, it's just this cheap webcam.
For the record, that is an release candidate of OctoPi. I'd strongly recommend against using that unless you intentionally want to help in testing a future release. Instead, use the stable version of OctoPi, it is kept up to date and ships right with OctoPrint 1.8.0.
