    Maybe you could take take a moment to spell out the program name so all of those beside you will know what it is?
    Oh, and worst message of all time.

    And, it breaks Sandboxie. Firefox (Ff 27) doesn't work in Sandboxie v4.08 anymore.

    Best regards,

    Forum cop/know it all? I see Ff for Firefox 90% of the time here! As for the worst message ever I believe yours is. That aside, posters want to cut to the chase and I believe this forum is one where nfm is to short so I used the next universal method. It's ashame you don't have that .00001 mg of common sense to realize that!

    You can diss each other all you want. Fact is he has a point. The forums aren't going to explode tomorrow, you can take 5 minutes to type a message.

    That being said, I don't understand why we have to have these threads for every single release of Firefox. Why can't we just wait for the official release announcement instead of all this MajorGeeks nonsense.

    Aladdin I am finding the same thing. I cannot open firefox anymore in sandboxie free (version 4.0:cool: after upgrading to firefox 27 this morning. I've tried all the various ways. This was the only topic I found on this after doing a search; there's no other reports of this on sandboxie forum. Iron and IE will still open in sandboxie OK, just not FF. It does show firefox.exe in the sandboxie window after (trying to) launch it, but the browser never actually opens. It was working fine before I updated firefox today, and I can still open FF outside of sandboxie.

    Thanks Ratchet. I am using sandboxie free 4.08 on Vista HP 32bit SP2. I have just posted a report on the sandboxie forum.

    I had an unrelated issue in the past with sandboxie (several versions ago) and it turned out to be an issue specific to Vista only, and tzuk was able to replicate it and release a fix. Hopefully he'll be able to get to the bottom of this one too (assuming more than 2 people are affected). I think FF 27 only came out in the last day, as yesterday when I checked for updates I was not offered one.

    There were a total of 94 versions of Firefox released in 2013. That is one every 3.88 days.

    Perhaps we can start a perpetual Mozilla builds/updates thread in this sub-forum instead of creating a new one every time? I think we already have that with Chrome.

    Perhaps this thread?:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=355174

    Although it was originally just for version 25, it appears people have been posting information on later releases.

    Sounds good. Maybe mantra can ask one of the mods to change the thread title, and then we're set. :thumb:

    I assume rachet just hit along the middle line of keys on his keyboard as he didn't want to bother to post any real words?

    Hi Cats,

    I have Windows 8.1 x64 and I am getting the following errors with paid SB:

    SBIE2303 Could not hook SendInput (33, 5)
    SBIE2318 DLL initialization failed for 'user32.dll'

    The browser crashes giving the error either "to close the browser or restart the browser".

    Best regards,

    Mohamed

    Acronyms are fine until you can't figure them out. Can you please say what "asddfg" stands for? TIA

    IMO, they should stop the practice of offering updated builds every few days. They didn't used to do that.
    Why not wait longer in-between builds and offer builds worth installing like other developers do?

    I believe they starting doing it in response to Google Chrome's fast releases.

    IMO, it has both benefits and downsides. You can always use the ESR edition if the continuous releases are too much for you.

    Which builds are you referring to? It seems to me that beta builds are released roughly every other week and official versions come out about every two months. More important than the frequency of updating are the fixes and features that accompany the update. Personally I ignore betas, but the "finals" often include important changes. For instance the new v27 supports TLS 1.2 by default which I consider important.
