Change Sanboxie Default Browser

Post by Bankop45 » Tue Jan 29, 2013 6:02 am

Happily, Firefox was my default browser inside my registered Sandboxie...until I downloaded and installed Google Chrome.
Then Chrome became my default browser inside my Sandboxie. But inside Sandboxie/DefaultBox/Applications/WebBroser/Firfox, NOW Chrome shows under the Firefox tree.
So now, when I double-click the Sanboxie icon on my bottom task bar, it opens Chrome....NOT Firefox.
How do I revert my Sanboxie's default to Firefox, please?

There's only one "default browser" for a computer, and it has nothing to do with Sandboxie even if you installed that browser program inside of a sandbox. If Chrome was installed normally (not inside of a sandbox) then it set itself as the "default" browser.

You would need to run Firefox (unsandboxed) and allow it to set itself as the default browser.
If Firefox does not ask you if it should set itself as the default use the menu:
Tools > Options > Advanced tab > System Defaults
to have it check to see if it's set as the default browser.
