    Using Sandboxie free version and looking at the setting configuration, I was wondering how can I exclude the Firefox ScrapBook Plus add-on newly captured pages won't be included in the things that'll be deleted? :doubt:

    I have already excluded the bookmark by adding plus sign on it, and it works. But couldn't figure out how to add scrapbook plus. Even clicking add button didn't respond.

    Any suggestions?

    Allow direct access to entire Firefox profile folder. Fixes all add-on incompatibilities, updates, etc., at the cost of a bit of security.
    DefenseWall should cover that, but I would still create restrictions.

    Allow direct file access to prefs.js located in your profile folder. That might be what you need.
    Sandbox Settings > Resource Access > File Access > Direct Access. Choose firefox.exe and use the Add button to navigate to your Firefox profile folder. Select the file prefs.js. If it works, it will be better than allowing the whole folder. If it doesn't work, another file in that folder is the one that is related to the addon you mentioned. Find it by trialing.

    I don't know what the "newly captured pages" are since I never used that addon but if it is something that gets downloaded, then all you need to do is allow direct file access to your download folder.
    One of the 2 suggestions should give you what you want.

    Oks....:D ...I have already figure it out. ;)

    Thanks for the quick help response. :thumb:

    You know, Sandboxie is a little bit "techno" ...hope internal settings could be more easy to understand without reading its help manual.

    I think he found the file or folder, located in the Firefox profile folder, that needed to be allowed direct access.

    I do these:

    Sandbox Settings > Resource Access > File Access > Direct Access
    "Add Program" button: firefox.exe
    "Add" button: Navigate to and select the folder called "Scrapbook", which by default is located in the Firefox profile folder:
    (C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.Default\ScrapBook)

    Click....Apply. :cool:
