    Hello.

    After Flash's last update (11.3) Sandboxie (which is configured to only allow Firefox to connect) warns me that Flash Player's Plug-in wants to access the Internet.
    When I refuse, the video I was about to watch won't show.
    This doesn't happen in YouTube but in sites like BBC's.

    I don't feel comfortable with FP calling home; any way around this issue?

    Thanks.

    On my regular browsing sandbox, Plugin container is only allowed to run. If I go to a site where Plugin container requires internet access, if I really want to watch the video, then I open another Fx sandbox that is less restricted. After watching the video, I close that instance of Firefox. I don't think, there's a way around this.
