Avast Sandbox still saving the history, even after uncheking it
« on: December 14, 2015, 12:27:29 AM »
Hello everyone

I'm currently using AIS, and it comes with a Sandbox.

I'm currently using the Sandboxie because the Avast sandbox comes with a problem (or I don't know how to properly configure it).

Even if I'm unchecking the History in the exclusions, it still saves the History when I'm using Firefox, and this shouldn't happen (I'm feeling a bit less safe because of this).

So, is this a problem that just happens to me?

Thank you guys for helping me.

EDIT: Just tested with the Avast SafeZone Browser, and it's working pretty well there, it doesn't save the History and any configuration that I made. Still, I would love to be able to do that in Firefox.

EDIT2: Funny... If you search in these forums for people that had the same problem, you can find threads from 2013, stating that the exclusions from the sandbox configuration doesn't work.
I don't know how hard it may be to create a good sandbox, but after 2 yeras the bug hasn't been fixed?
