Browser Default

Post by AtlantaSouthsider » Mon Dec 07, 2015 2:24 pm

After all the mess caused by Windows 10 and Edge, I have set Waterfox successfully as my default browser. When I click my Start - (Sandboxie) Run Web Browser, everything works great. When I click on links like those of Outlook as I would expect, my Waterfox default browser is invoked without Sandboxie.

I have found this older (MS has fixed the problem) link, http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/links- ... indows-10/, that suggests a registry fix just for Outlook. Can any guru give me a fix that would force all invocations of my default Waterfox web browser to be executed under Sandboxie?

TIA

If you click on "run browser sandboxed" SBIE will load IE instead of Edge. This is the Edge is the Windows default.

If you click a link in email, it will open your default browser (Waterfox if you have changed that)...It will not be sandboxed unless you have your browser set to be "forced" to open in a SB.

You can set it to "force" Waterfox to open under the supervision of SBIE by invoking the Forced program option in the Licensed (paid) version of SBIE. http://www.sandboxie.com/index.php?Prog ... gs#program

Otherwise, it will open, but not sandboxed, unless you cut and past the link from your email, and open your browser (manually) in SBIE and pasting it there.

The few seconds delay in launching Sandboxie never bothered me but this is worth it - purchase will happen soon.
