    On my Win 8 system I also see that FF Quantum is not working properly, it takes quite some time to load websites.

    The point is to test new versions before installing them on the real system. Like I said, I use SBIE both as an anti-exploit and software testing tool. But I do think that SBIE is perhaps a bit too restrictive and that's why more and more apps will not work when running sandboxed.

    i guess sandboxie only prevent things to modify the real system, but allow the real system to interact with isolated elements. It is only a sandbox so logically it need interaction with the real system.

    I have noticed lately that the sandbox is not always automatically deleted when I close my browser session (Chrome), and when it happens I have to use 'Terminate all programs' from Sandboxie Control UI. I have no idea how long has this been happening for, and I wonder whether others have experienced this behaviour. Any suggestions?

    I think I know what happened, it's a false alarm. Sometimes when you a copy/move a folder from C:\Sandbox to the real system, SBIE will somehow still sandbox the app. After a few hours it "released" it and now I don't see all of those digital signatures. I knew something was wrong because it would be a huge hole.

    Try adding the process that's lingering in the sandbox when you exit Chrome to Lingering programs (the recommendation doesn't apply to Sandboxie processes).

    If the process that lingers is chrome.exe, then instead of adding it to Lingering programs, make it the Leader program of the sandbox.

    The above is supposed to help when processes remain running in the sandbox after closing sandboxed programs

    Hope it helps, Osaban. Sometimes using those settings help, sometimes it doesn't. In my case, they have clearly helped once or twice. And haven't also, at least once. So, you have to play and see.

    I have also just started noticing this in the past week or so. It doesn't happen every time which makes it hard to work out what is causing it when I close my browser (Opera)

    Am trying to find what situation triggers it rather than make changes to Sbie at the moment.

    For the record, Bo's advice seems to work:

    Good to hear that it works, but am wondering what change in the operating system caused this as I'm still using the same Sbie version I was before this started happening the last week or so. (Win 10)

    Also why it doesn't happen everytime

    Perhaps an Opera update, a Win 10 update, or a change in the weather :D

    +1 :) (#4631).

    Will check out Bo's solution, next time it happens. As @stapp says, not every time - not now for example.

    You know, I think I completely misunderstood this Signer Extractor tool. It simply scans EXE files for digital signatures, so if you scan C:\ it will also scan C:\Sandbox, so no wonder I get to see all of those signatures. I assumed it scanned the Windows Certificate Store.

    Sandboxie Control wants outbound connection?

    Is this License check?
