Hi shmu26, for security reasons, browsers are not allowed to update in the sandbox. You do the updates unsandboxed, make sure they are applied by restarting the browser unsandboxed, and then go back to the sandbox.
Chrome automatic update is gonna work outside the sandbox. But the best way to handle browser updates with Sandboxie is to disable automatic updating or the function to automatically check for updates. And then when an update is available, you run the browser unsandboxed, update it, restart the browser unsandboxed to apply the update. And then go back to the sandbox. If you dont set contents of the sandbox to delete automatically, then you should delete contents manually before running the new version of the browser in the sandbox.
I use Firefox and have set Firefox never to check for updates. I had it that way pretty much since the time when I started using SBIE. You go to forums and read, is easy to know when an update is out. I usually know an update is coming days before the update is released. And usually wait a few days to update Firefox after the update is out.
