Sandboxing of Firefox
« on: August 21, 2010, 02:47:08 PM »
I've got a run on CIS 5 RC to test the sandboxing options of it.
Although it has more configurations and seems to allow more flexibility, I couldn't run Firefox + customized profile folder + Comodo sandbox.
I was discussing this here (for registered Comodo forum users: https://forums.comodo.com/beta-corner-cis/sandboxing-of-firefox-t60671.0.html).
I really couldn't manage it. I lost all my addons and theme.

I've asked a long time ago a way to make exceptions to file extensions and not only for folders.
I need to open Excel files (.xlsx) of my intranet, accessing through the browser, downloading it to temporary folder, open it).
I know I can save it to a non-sandboxed folder and run it from there. But it's quite annoying.

I know I can manage (customize) the temporary folder for Internet applications. But this won't help, as all files will be there and I don't want to un-sandbox the whole file. I just want to open Excel files.

Is there any way to exclude files of sandboxing?

For some reason, I gave up on it before.
Will give it a try. But I don't think it has the feature I'm looking for.
Thanks Asyn.

No problem..!
It's a good sandbox, imo.. Just test it.

avast gives me more flexibility... I need flexibility. If "everything" is sandboxed, I can't browse like I ever did.
For protection I have avast and Comodo Time Machine :)

Thanks for the effort... but sandboxie does not have the minimal features I need/want.

Exactly the same behavior :'(

I respect you persistence, but maybe it's better to give in here.
At least at the moment... ;)

No, I won't stay here.
avast sandbox is BSODing my computer.
And avast support for this problem is a crap.
I've posted a long time ago...
