Re: Skype and CredReadA

every time I start Skype it forces me to sign out and then sign in again. Then I have click on "skip" for the setup process and finally the app starts. It appears that the app's settings are stored in protected storage also, since it never remembers what I select. Are you sure that this has to do w...

Hi Peter, if it was me, I would switch to the new profile
That's exactly what I did now (during all the last hours :? ), against my initial intentions. :wink: It was a terrible lot of work but at the moment with the new profile all seems to work o.k. I hope it will stay so.

Re: Slow loading of the starting page with Firefox 58.0.1

Thank you once more, Barb. I created now a new profile in Firefox, migrated more or less all the relevant parts of the old profile and compared all entries in about:config (where I could find no relevant differences). That means: The new profile should be more or less identical with the old one. Nev...

Re: Slow loading of the starting page with Firefox 58.0.1

Hello Barb, both are not very attractive solutions: Then you may want to go back to your previous profile to see what's in it and add changes to the new one, one at a time (say one extension at a time, , one about:config setting at a time, and so on) to see if that helps finding out the culprit. Tha...

Re: Slow loading of the starting page with Firefox 58.0.1

Thanks Barb. According with the above described issues I tested with 2 scenarios concerning the modifications in about:config Scenario A: - security.sandbox.content.level : value reduced from 4 (= default) to 2 - browser.tabs.remote.autostart: true (= default) ---> Effect: delay when loading the sta...

Re: Slow loading of the starting page with Firefox 58.0.1

PS: I have to add something: With the above method unfortunately the problem is not resolved completely. Indeed the starting page loads without problem now but when changing from there to another website there is now (often? / always?) a remarkable delay - not when loading it (as far as I can say) b...

Re: Slow loading of the starting page with Firefox 58.0.1 [SOLVED]

Hello Barb and thanks for all your support. The advice from the first linked thread did not help. (Reducing the value for "security.sandbox.content.level" brought back the sound but did not fix the issue with the delay in loading the starting page.) Nevertheless I found (indirectly) the solution in ...

Re: Firefox 56/57/58 sound not working when sandboxed

Thank you, APMichael, for your reply and thank you, Barb, for the advice. Yes, indeed, the sound in Youtube is back when switching the value for "security.sandbox.content.level" from 4 (as it was in my case) to 2. :D Alternatively, the method described by bo.elam and Geordy in the other thread works...

Re: Password change

Vielen Dank, APMichael. :wink:

Yes, the linked post clarifies the situation. Indeed today it was the first time after a longer period that I logged in again. (Usually no troubles with Sandboxie and therefore no need to login. :D )

I ask just to be sure that this was no phishing attack or something similar by some third party. :wink: After logging in into the Forum some minutes ago I was required to change my password to a new (more complicated) one. Is this something officially decided and required by the Forum team? Thanks i...

Slow loading of the starting page with Firefox 58.0.1 [SOLVED]

Here the second problem I have to report concerning Firefox 58.0.1 : The starting page loads extremely slowly within the sandbox since the update to Firefox 58.0.1: It takes about 15 seconds! (With the previous version of Firefox [57.0.4] it were about 3 to 4 seconds.) The problem obviously is not c...

No sound in YouTube with Firefox 58.0.1

Just a quick report:

After updating Firefox to the latest version 58.0.1 the sound in YouTube does not work any longer.

Outside of the sandbox the sound in YouTube is o.k.

Windows 7 Home Premium, 32 bit
Sandboxie version 5.22

Thanks from a very satisfied user

Time for me too to say thank you for this excellent software. Since a couple of years Sandboxie has become for me an indispensable security measure. Especially surfing in the Internet is something that I could not imagine any longer without Sandboxie. :D

Re: Antivirus/Anti-malware|SBIE v5+[working/not][Updated 8/2]

Like stonerd in his above posting I would like to give a positive comment for the combination of Sandboxie with a Norton product (+ Firefox): The positive experience I had described about 6 months ago ( posting from December 27th ) is still valid. No conflicts any more all this time. :D This applies...

Re: Antivirus/Anti-malware|SBIE v5+[working/not][Updated 8/2

I am slightly optimistic that the latest version of Sandboxie ( 5.16 ) could be compatible with Norton Internet Security + Firefox. :D I made the Sandboxie update at 19th December - more than a week ago - and since this time Firefox started in Sandboxie always with the first attempt and always witho...
