Sandboxed Firefox Question
« on: October 23, 2010, 02:00:21 AM »
if i select firefox to always be sandboxed, does the plugin container program that runs with firefox also get sandboxed or does it run outside of the sandbox while firefox is sandboxed

2nd, should people add the plugincontainer to be auto sandboxed as well if firefox is being auto sandboxed?

Anything that gets launched by an already sandboxed application will also be virtualized. The plugins however, can be excluded in the expert settings.

By default that option is turned off. (All settings)
