IE11 always opens in new window

Post by ExpertNovice » Fri Feb 22, 2019 12:01 am

Opening "new" problem report because another thread stated:
Sandboxie 5.28 has been released.
Closing this thread as there are no more "beta related" issues now.

Feel free to create new threads in the problem reports section.


IE11 no longer allows opening a link in a new tab when sandboxed. Specifically, it always opens in a new window.

[*]The Windows version number?
Windows 10 pro 64 bit

[*]Sandboxie version number
SBIE 5.28 (64-bit)

[*]Does the issue occur in a new Sandbox with Default settings?
Yes, assuming this is what was wanted, in Sandboxie Control > Menu Sandbox > Create New Sandbox. A name was provided and "Copy settings from mailing sandbox" was left (None).

[*]NAME & Version/build numbers of any applications involved?
Internet Explorer 11 version 11.316.17763.0

[*]Are you running antivirus/anti-malware software?
Yes:
Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus version 9.0.24.49
Malwarebytes Premium version 3.6.1.2711

[*]What are the exact steps to reproduce the issue?
Open a sandboxed IE11
right click any link
Select "open in new tab"
Note the page was opened in a new window and NOT a new tab

All,

Please see:
viewtopic.php?p=135533#p135533

If you are using windows 10 other than v 1809 (anything older), see if Sbie 5.26 works for you

If you are using 1809, then you can only use 5.28

Regards,
Barb.-

Barb,

I am on 1809 so will reinstall the 5.27 beta shortly. Thank you.

I was hoping that installing another browser, Firefox, would work but... well, that is for another post!

I have decided not to reinstall 5.27. It has also been verified this is a Sandboxie issue "alone". That is, shutting down all anti-malware apps doesn't help. Leaving them all running and opening IE11 outside a sandbox and IE11 will honor the "open in new tab" command.
