URL opened in non sandboxie Chrome

Post by adrian_s » Wed Mar 07, 2018 11:48 pm

Using 5.23.5 (64-bit) under Windows 10 and Chrome 64.0.3282.186

Even after I open a Chrome under Sandboxie, whenever I click links in any documents, Word or Outlook email (not under Sandboxie environment), a new Chrome outside Sandboxie will be triggered. This happened in Firefox in the past but I resolved in by doing the following.

Sandbox Settings > Resource Access > Window Access
"Add Program" button: firefox.exe
"Add" button: FirefoxMessageWindow

What should I do for Chrome?

You need to make Chrome the default browser and make it a Forced program in Sandboxie.

Thanks.

Yes. Chrome is the default browser but I am using the non registered version. Forced programs feature is not available.

Also, it did not happen when I use Windows 7 with older version of Sandboxie.

Hello adrian_s,

Sounds like the known DDE issue.

Please see:

Adding to what Bo already provided, have a look at this thread:

Thanks.

Those threads are related mostly to Firefox and IE.

I have downloaded the latest version 5.24. The problem still exists; A sandboxie Chrome is opened, however, whenever I click a link any non sandboxie application (say, Outlook email) , a new and non sandboxie Chrome will be opened. This never happened in my Windows 7 environment.

I switched the default browser back to Firefox and added the followings. Everything is fine.

Sandbox Settings > Resource Access > Window Access
"Add Program" button: firefox.exe
"Add" button: FirefoxMessageWindow

Hello, now I'm asking the third time cause my questions in other threads wheren't answered and the topics where closed:

Can somebody confirm that there is NO workaround for Chrome to open URLs in a sandboxed Chrome when already running? (using the unregistered version of sandboxie)

So there is NO similar workaround for Chrome as it exists for Firefox? (see last post)

I think many users out there with the same problem would benefit from a definite answer in this thread. Thank you very much.
