    Yup, ANOTHER ONE!!!

    Seriously, I'm getting used to it now and really love it. Once you understand the basic concept and how to use the SBIE control pane, it's pretty darn simple to use.

    My question is this: I tried setting up direct access to Firefox bookmarks and history, but there is still several other things in the Firefox profile that would be easier if they had direct access, like auto complete, and some of my extensions, like session manager, don't work right.

    Would it be a bad idea to just allow ONLY firefox.exe direct access to the profile folder, or would that make it vulnerable? If so, how can you set Firefox so it's safe but easy to use? I guess if malware to be named firefox.exe, then it could get through to my system, or perhaps not?

    Thanks

    'Direct Access' settings don't apply to files in sandbox - so a malware would have to be called firefox.exe and be installed outside of the sandbox.

    'Full Access' does not have this limitation - be careful with this setting :)
