Closing Down Individual Browser Tabs

Hi Sandboxie Team This "relatively" simple idea has been bouncing around by brain for a few days now and, I thought, may prove useful for the wider Sandboxie community. When browsing the Internet with my sandboxed browser, I have found that sometimes my browser gets high-jacked by a rogue program th...

Re: Firefox's Extended Service Release

Hi Bob

Cheers for that piece of information, which I did not know about beforehand, so I guess I'll stay where I am until I'll have to upgrade, at the moment I do not need to.

Once again, cheers.

Firefox's Extended Service Release [SOLVED]

Dear Forum Members & Sandboxie experts I am still a WinXP SP3 user, simply because it continues to works well for me, and I also use Firefox v51.0.1 (32 bit) as my "go to" browser, again because it's very flexible and works well. However, today I came across Firefox v52.x new "Extended Service Relea...

Re: Help

Hi aVeryLongUsername You know, I've got exactly the same software that you have, with the exception of Avast, I use "Microsoft Security Essentials" instead, after getting rid of Norton Internet Security because it prevented my FF browser from working in Sandboxie. Anyway, as a suggestion I think you...

Re: Sandboxie Error Message/Pop Up Box (Part 2)

Dear Bo and Craig I have never seen the Sandboxie pop-up error, and the inability to empty the Control window, when I was using FF29, the problem started when I upgraded to FF41. And as you know, I got rid of NIS22.5 (well, the repair shop did) and I have been using Microsoft Security Essentials eve...

Sandboxie Error Message/Pop Up Box (Part 2)

Dear Forum Members Unfortunately, my original thread is now locked and so I cannot add this belated and secondary solution. Anyway, today I downgraded my Firefox browser from 41.x to 29.x and lo and behold the Sandboxie error pop-up box no longer pops up and the Control window now empties when I clo...

Re: Sandboxie Error Message/Pop Up Box

Dear Peter 123 Thank you for your suggestion, I have just rebooted my PC and did a "Terminate All Programs" in Sandboxie and it has worked because there is nothing in the "Sanboxie Control" window apart from the browser I am currently using. You know, I currently feel jinxed because I have had three...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Dear Forum Members

I've just installed Microsoft Security Essential, the latest version available for XP, and this is what I intend to use until Norton has sorted out the latest problem created with it's NAV/NIS update.

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Dear Forum Members I believe that this has drifted off the main reason for it coming into existence, i.e. the problem of sandboxing Firefox caused by a NAV/NIS update on 19th October. And at the moment, there is no known solution other than removing NAV/NIS and it's associated files from your PC (or...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Dear Forum Members I must say, first of all, that I agree with Peter 123 overall and in particular his conclusions because I too dislike making changes to my stable and protected computer system unless absolutely necessary. But unfortunately, I now believe that I am being backed into a corner and be...
