[.10] link clicking

Post by yodar444 » Mon Aug 26, 2013 2:10 pm

i normally run with opera as my default browser and i force it to always run sandboxed by setting the appropriate options in sandboxie. this allows me to click links in emails and miscellaneous web pages and have them always open in a sandboxed browser. i have been operating this way for years.

upon returning from a 4 day trip on 7/14/13, clicking links in emails results in search results displayed in japanese [?] characters. the computer was hibernated and the power shut off at the UPS while we were gone.

e.g.
clicking http://www.iheart.com/ results in

http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&q=%E6%A0%.......

the google web page says:
"脂" (and any subsequent words) was ignored because we limit queries to 32 words.
Your search - 栢瑴㩰⼯睷⹷桩慥瑲挮浯∯〬〬ⰬⰰⰰⰬ汇扯污作彐啍䕔ㅘ㘳㔲＀翿䮋謐ᡓ턻䆋㬈ࡂ 謁ଁ脂à  - did not match any documents.

if i rt clk the link and select 'copy link location' and then paste into the browser it goes to the right web page.

if i remove the forced sandbox from opera, link clicking works properly.

if i make firefox my default browser, link clicking works ok whether or not FF is forced to sandbox.

i use FF for most of my browsing and thus don't want to run it forced sandbox mode.

parameters:
win7pro 64
sandboxie 4.04 64bit
opera 12.16
firefox ESR 17.0.8

help!

This was fixed in a later version 4.05 beta. Get version 4.05.06 from here:

thank you for the 4.05.06 fix, but it also seems to be fixed by using opera 15.0
opera 15 doesn't show if u 'check for updates', but it is available.
i think they have screwed up the UI, but it seems fast.

tzuk, thanks for the 4.05.06 fix, but this seems like a pretty obscure and interesting problem. would you care to describe what caused it?

Obscure, yes. Interesting, no. :) This was a simple matter of a conversion error between ANSI and UNICODE text strings.
Opera sends the link text as a single byte string (ANSI) and Sandboxie thought it was supposed to be a UNICODE string.

Same problem in the operation to drop a local file to the shortcut of Opera.
That opera is starting state is a condition.

Sandboxie 4.05.08
Opera 12.16 32bit
Windows 7 Pro SP1 32bit
