Firefox nightly version fails to run

Post by cornflake » Sat Sep 09, 2017 1:59 am

Windows 7 and Sandboxie 5.20 64-bit. I tried to open Firefox Nightly version in a sandbox.

https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox ... .win64.zip

It fails:

SBIE2205 Service not implemented: CreateDesktop

As a workaround, you can add

Code: Select all

user_pref("security.sandbox.content.level", 1);
to prefs.js

Have you looked at the following thread and attempted the workaround/fix?

Firefox Nightly is now using security.sandbox.content.level at Level 4. Sandboxie is incompatible with it.

Thanks everyone. It's security.sandbox.content.level as many of you said. The default number is slowly increasing. At 4 (now the default in Nightly) an alternate desktop is used. I tried 3 but youtube doesn't work properly, there's no audio and picking arbitrary points in a video is slow to move to that position. At 2 it seems to be working ok, so far.

My suggestion is sandboxie developers get in touch with firefox developers and figure out a way to work together rather than wait until this ends up in a release.

Some fonts look a bit worse at 2 & 3.

Interesting, do you have a way I can reproduce? I would like to see the difference. Thanks

Thanks. I couldn't reproduce, I don't see any difference in fonts at the different levels in Windows 8.1 x64, Sandboxie 5.20 x64. Two screenshots are attached, one at level1 and one at level3. I used a new profile and the Nightly version is 57.0a1 (2017-09-08).
