    No problem here either. I've attached a pic of firefox with noscript on running inside of sandboxie. Runs great. I've only been running sandboxie for a couple of days. I love it.
    I haven't encountered any problems at all with firefox addons as of yet. I've also ran "IE' in sandbox with no problems. I haven't tried Opera Browser yet.

    I will try opera and see if everything goes as good with it as with ie and firefox.

    Thanks for asking this silly question for me! I was thinking the same thing. After all, it is Sandboxie, not Sandboxff.

    Sandboxie and Firefox is an excellent combo.

    Okay, I've attached a pic of Opera Browser version 9.60 running inside Sandboxie I haven't encountered any problems with Opera running inside sandboxie. I logged into my email, my cc account, then surfed through several websites. Opera is running smooth and fast..just like firefox.

    I don't run opera very often and I know this isn't the latest version of opera. However, it does run good inside sandboxie. Sorry, didn't mean to get this thread off topic. Now back to my firefox. lol. :)

    Yes,it is working as intented and with the latest versions of sbie its faster than ever(the combo).
    example of add-ons that will not work :adblock plus(not fully i think,dun use it myself),foxy tunes and flashgot(you cannot auto quick recover in default settings-must turn downloads to desktop e.g)

    How about the NoScript plugin? Is that compatible with Sandboxie?

    I have been using Sandboxie with Firefox, IE, K-Meleon and lately with Google Chrome.

    Never had an issue, except with v1.5.1 of K-Meleon, but that got sorted out in the current Sandboxie release.

    Sandboxie BETA v3.33 seems to be even snappier!
    Check out here.

    To conclude, Sandboxie + Firefox, amazing combo.
