Chrome (Portable) notifications not showing up

Post by fuquaforlife » Wed Jul 10, 2013 11:54 am

Problem:
I am using Chrome (portable version). When using it non-sandboxed, I get popup notifications for new mail, new chats etc. When I run Chrome sandboxed, while I still get a audio chime notification, I do not get a popup notification. Clearing the sandbox does not help. I don't know if I have something set wrong, or if its a bug. I noticed this problem when I switched from freeware to purchased version, and set chrome to autostart in a sandbox (used to run Chrome out of Sandbox), so it might have been happened on previous versions, but wouldn't know.

Software:
-- Latest version of Chrome. Version 28.0.1500.71
-- Latest version of Sandboxie, 4.04 64bit
-- Win7 64Bit

Let me know if you need additional info!

Thanks.

[.03] Google Chrome 28 & Rich Text notifications

Post by Szab » Wed Jul 24, 2013 8:28 am

Im noticing that Chrome Version 28.0.1500.72m does not display Rich text notifications while under sandbox with Checker plus for G mail 13.6.1 Extension. As you might know, Chrome has implemented a feature where chrome extensions may utilize an API to display Rich text Notifications ( a flyout) in task bar such as when new emails arrive.

Out of Sandbox guard it displays fine. Currently on Windows 7 64 bit using Chrome Version mentioned above with latest Sandboxie 4.05.02.

The easiest way to check that these notifications work is to open up Chromes task manager under tools, select an extension and End Process. This should produce a rich text notification saying the extension has crashed on bottom right of screen.

On a side issue, im also seeing performance slowdown of Chrome running in its own sandbox on the odd occasion and am unable to pinpoint the cause. Sometimes when PC resumes from sleep is see double sandboxie icons or a double X symbol of Sandboxie trying to terminate a process even though, before PC was put to sleep all programs were terminated. This only occurs on the odd occasion and am unable to reproduce.

Thank you in advance.

Google Chrome was thinking the desktop is locked so didn't display notifications. This will be fixed in the next beta build of Sandboxie.

Version 4.05.03 has fixed the rich text notification issue.

I also no longer seem to be experiencing slowdown in performance. Chrome open new tabs seem to load normally and responsively.

Thank you for your hard work and support of this great product.
