    Nope. Runsafer is not a sandbox my friend lol. Best to run your browsers in sandbox with dropmyrights and call it a day :D

    No. Runsafer and Dropmyrights are the same thing my friend. I would just use the dropmyrights option in sandboxie and don't be bother with runsafer.

    Doesn't the SBIE 'Drop Rights' option put the sandboxed programs in a LUA environment in the sandbox whereas 'RunSafer' puts SBIE in a LUA(like) environment while you're in an admin account?

    Using 'Drop Rights' while in admin account, would mean you couldn't f.i. update Firefox while it's sandboxed where using SBIE with 'RunSafer' would mean, you can't update SBIE even though you're on an admin acount.
    That is, if I understand correctly...

    Once simple reason. I have a couple of sites that use JAVA, and I've had a tough time getting them to run under SBIE, there for by having the browsers running under OA Run Safer, they are still protected.

    I think your logic is correct.

    Simple, to prevent compatibility issues since DropMyRights is part of Sandboxie.
