Feature "Allow this program?"

Post by deugniet » Sat Oct 09, 2010 5:05 am

Example: I start Firefox in a standardsandbox and an other program (like Java) wants to start. A popup with "Allow this program? YES/NO" would be handy. Safetyfeature.

This would make it act too much like a HIPS/Antivirus.

Just because FIREWALL programs use it, doesn't mean it's acting like one :roll:

I think this feature would be nice.

Chrome's upcoming bild will allow users to configure java & flash per user on-demand basis. You could use Noscript for now. Or you could designate a blocked file path to the Java/Flash program folders hence cordoning them off from the browser and sandboxed programs
