Found a recent Sandboxie forumpost by Bo:
Good to know.
Strange he stopped posting on Wilders . He is definitely the go-to guy for Sandboxie!
Bo is at the Sandboxie forum if any of you want to reach him there. Probably a good idea if you have any problems with Sandboxie, post them there at the forum. https://forums.sandboxie.com/phpBB3/index.php
Glad you guys surfaced this Topic again. On this system I was still running 22-Now up-to-date 5.26.
I suppose it's worth mention while i'm at it that with DS (Imager) + SD (Virtualizer), Sandboxie is been another one of those apps that's really stood the test of time with me dating back to Windows 98. Steady as the Sun rising every day.
Can anyone show me - When you install SBIE (free) is there a way to change the default browser afterwards?
If you temporary disable SBIE or don't run browser under SBIE, you can change default browser or make other browser's configuration changes.
Thanks. I did get it resolved by just changing the default browser.
Yes, if you change it from system settings it will work also. If you want to do it from within a browser, that browser shouldn't run sandboxed when you try to do it.
A new Beta (5.27) is available. It works with the latest Windows Insider builds.
You know what's weird, I've noticed that the latest Chrome runs smooth as hell when sandboxed. I wonder why they can't seem to fix the problems with Firefox.
SandBoxie 5.27 Beta-1
because there exist no problem with firefox - in your imagaination respective your system - yes, there is.
I haven't updated to the beta yet, but I have no problems with Sandboxie and Firefox on two systems
OK thanks for letting me know. It's weird as hell, both Firefox 52 and 62 have started to malfunction. I get this weird CPU spikes that results in freezing. It happens even when no extensions are active. I'm done with this crap, so I think I'm now forced to switch to Vivaldi which works very smoothly, no matter if it's installed inside or outside the sandbox.
I switched to Brave Browser beta and it works great with Sandboxie. To me it's even faster than Vivaldi.
Having problems with WPS Spreadsheet lingering in Sandboxie. I have to right click on the container and terminate the program. I've added the program to Program Stop lingering programs. Anything else I can do?
I'm using v5.26
Hey. I use Vilvaldi and settled in. But now you might have stumbled onto something there
If you do try out Brave beta or dev you will also have to add the following settings to Sandboxie:
Go to Sandbox Settings > Resource Access > File Access > Direct Access
"Add Program" button: Brave.exe
"Edit/Add" button: %DefaultSpoolDirectory%\*
Then press ok
Updating Windows 10 1803 (April) to 1809 (October).
The installer told me to uninstall Sandboxie because it is incompatible with Windows and refused to continue until I did...
Have you installed the beta version at the link below?
Same here. Uninstalled 5.26, updated W10 and installed 5.27.1 beta. No problems so far.
NVM, figured it out..
There seems to be more Sandboxie problems with 1809
I think speed is about the same with all Chromium based browsers, so it comes down to features. And you can't beat Vivaldi when it comes to this. I did notice that the more tabs you open, the more CPU time Vivaldi will use, but it doesn't result in freezing like with Firefox.
I'm afraid that even Vivaldi sometimes freezes, so now I will run it outside the sandbox to see if Sandboxie is causing the problem. If so, then I will consider to drop SBIE for browsing protection. Of course I will continue to use it for software testing.
It seems like Vivaldi freezes less often when not running sandboxed, but at least I now know I can't blame Sandboxie for all of it. BTW, I noticed that SpyShelter warned me that certain components of Sandboxie have changed, but I didn't update it lately. Does SBIE have an auto-update function?
