Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

And in addition to safemist's question about the firewall: Norton also offers a browser protection (apart from the indeed never working toolbar). Does (for example) Microsoft Security Essentials (respectively Windows Defender) have something similar? (I fear: no). I am aware that this is primarily w...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

I have Norton 365 on a Win 10/64 machine and have no problems. Craig, please could you take a look which version of ipseng32.dll you have on your machine? Even if a replacement had no effect or did not work at all (as stated above by rpljhun) it would be of interest to see if the issue might really...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

In my machine the success rate of running Firefox is around 99% but before that it's 40-50%. Congratulations! I am already happy that perhaps I will start to reach now 40-50%. :mrgreen: Your using Windows 7, right? Right. Just for testing can you try to downgrade to Sandboxie 4.20, just download, r...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

It was greyed probably your drop rights was enabled. Check your drop rights(Sandbox Settings -> Restrictions -> Drop Rights) Oh, yes, thanks! Of course. This was the reason! 8) Now I could make all the steps you recommended - with an extremely bad result: From about 15 attempts only 2 times Firefox...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Add the settings below under GlobalSettings (Configure Menu -> Edit Configuration) When doing this I get a message about an application error ("Anwendungsfehler") concerning firefox.exe as soon as I want to start the browser in the sandbox. http://abload.de/thumb/awfrzrs4.jpg explorer.exe - Applica...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Is anyone of you could post here your access logs? Here are mines. :wink: I was lucky and during the first attempt the opening of Firefox in the newly created Sandbox succeeded (the following times it failed). So you can see two logs for comparing. I saw that one of the differences is that the ctfm...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

net user does not login to anything. Try logging in under and admin account. Reboot windows, login under admin, disable Norton firewall. O.k. I got it now. The net user command was not wrong but afterwards I have to continue with the log in process. (For those [like me] who need a descriptive expla...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

I cant get on, except maybe once in a while by accident. Yes, that's my situation too. :wink: have you tried turning off browser protection in Norton: settings--firewall--intrusion and browser protection--browser protection off Thanks for the tip. I tried it now (as disabling various other features...

I think it was already running under admin account. But anyway I typed now the command "net user Administrator /active:yes" but no change: Firefox may open within Sandboxie in one of perhaps 5 or 6 attempts.

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Correct, but sadly that didn't help also: e.g. Kaspersky still didn't fix KIS2016. Maybe Norton would. :wink: In the meantime I downloaded an older version of Norton from filehorse.com (link above), namely 22.5.2.15. The installation (plus automatic replacement of the existing version) seems to wor...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

[...] if an AV program blocks essential processes of SBIE, SBIE can't fix anything! They can contact the producer of the AV program only - nothing more. This would also be a good step! Program developers have better contacts to such companies than simple users and above all they have the technical ...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Richard329 is quite harsh in his words and I do not agree with all he says. But I think that Sandboxie's staff makes it indeed by far too easy for itself when saying in essence the following: Disable/uninstall your AV (o.k., some of us already did it) ---> Without this AV things run better? ---> So ...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

O.k. thanks Bo. What I have already tried was a complete uninstalling of Norton (only without reboot as I tried it with Shadow Defender) and the result was indeed the same as in MDrew's test: Firefox opened again in the sandbox. But what I would do is test disabling anything that Norton does other t...

Re: Sandboxie cannot open (a sandboxed) Firefox anymore

Thanks to Craig@Invincea for his tests, his explanations and his patience. I am not happy about the situation but I understand this consideration: A typical troubleshooting step is to have users disable A/V. If that doesn't work, removal. (i.e. like Kaspersky.) It's far faster for a user to diable/r...
