Pale Moon, Tabs [SOLVED]

Post by Bazweive » Thu Sep 14, 2017 4:16 am

Hello

System: Windows 7 32 bit
Pale Moon: 27.4.2
Sandboxie: 5.20

In my browser I use the setting Pale Moon->options->options->General->Startup-> "Show my windows and tabs from last time"

In Sandboxie I have activated:
Pale Moon sofortige Wiederherstellung.PNG

Pale Moon Firefox Profile.PNG
Pale Moon Firefox Profile.PNG (59.1 KiB) Viewed 581 times

Pale Moon Pale Moon Profile.PNG (58.44 KiB) Viewed 581 times
How to reproduce:
1. I go to
C:\Program Files\Pale Moon
and rename "palemoon.exe" to "firefox.exe"
2. I start the renamed firefox.exe and put the setting Pale Moon->options->options->General->Startup-> "Show my windows and tabs from last time"
3. I start the renamed firefox.exe out of the sandbox and open 320 tabs.
4. I close Pale Moon.
5. I open it in sandboxie with the settings above. Now there are 320 tabs.
6. I close any of the tabs
7. I close Pale Moon
8. I reopen Pale Moon. My expectation is, that the closed tab is now still away. But what I found is: The tab is here again.

When I make the same out of the sandbox: The closed tab does not appear again. This is the behavior which I want to have.

I also made a test, with only 3 tabs. With 3 tabs the behavior is like expected. In and out of the sandbox.

Can you please help me to solve this problem.

Would appreciate your reply. Thank you.

Hello Bazweive,

Since you have renamed palemoon.exe to firefox.exe, you will probably need to manually set direct access to the profile folder. See if this works for you:
Open Sandboxie Control --> Configure --> Edit Configuration
Copy this line at the end of your desired Sandbox:

OpenFilePath=firefox.exe,%AppData%\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\*

Save it, close it.
Go to Configure---> Reload configuration
Re-try opening Pale Moon in the Sandbox and closing a tab.

Regards,
Barb.-

Thank you.

This seems to work. But I will do further tests.

After having tested this during the last 6 weeks I can confirm: Yes it works this way. Thank you.
