Re: Allow direct access to Firefox session management

I've done a google search for "Firefox session management". Here's my summary: After shutdown or crash, allows you to completely restore your browser configuration. Each tab will be in its correct window, and show the correct content. Chrome has the same feature, and a similar SB configuration dialo...

Re: Allow direct access to Firefox session management

.
Yes, that's the correct dialog.

For most of the checkboxes, the link in my OP gives advice on whether or not to check the box.

I'm looking for information on "Allow direct access to Firefox session management", and advice on whether or not to check that box.

Thanks.

Firefox not saving some visited links

. I use SB 5.26 (64-bit) with Win 10 Pro. I normally run any internet-facing prog in SB. So I run Firefox with SB. I'm been doing an online course for a few days. I need visited links to be persistent, so that I know which pages I've visited. But I've noticed that some visited links are not persiste...

Re: Beware of keyloggers while banking within Sandboxie

. With SBIE, in a clean computer [my italics], thats all you got to do to protect yourself against keylogger. Bo Having a clean computer before I start is obviously practical - but impracticable. MalwareBytes takes 1 hour, Windows Defender takes 3 hours. So the combined time is just over 3 hours. Qu...

Re: Always ask for sandboxie run when opening .exe files

Hi Derivates, If I combine the contents of your first post with the contents of your second post, I think I now understand how you're using SB. - You download an EXE file from the internet outside SB. - You are concerned that the EXE file might contain malware. - So, for safety, you want to install ...

Evernote- Some program icons have no "Run Sandboxed" in context menu [SOLVED]

As mentioned in another post, I've been experimenting with running Evernote sandboxed. To avoid balls of spaghetti, I deliberately did not mention that the Evernote icon on my desktop does not contain the shell context menu option "Run Sandboxed". Every other desktop program icon - with the exceptio...

Re: Always ask for sandboxie run when opening .exe files

. If you open your program from an icon, I think you can edit the icon's Properties. For example, to run Notepad in SB, place a Notepad icon on the desktop. Then change the current Target in the icon Properties to: "C:\Program Files\Sandboxie\Start.exe" %windir%\system32\notepad.exe Maybe you could ...
