Problem with Sandbox
« on: June 01, 2012, 10:02:11 PM »
I usually don't run my browsers in the sandbox, mainly because of the download glitch in IE9. I also don't see a reason to sandbox them since when I need more security in my browsing, I can switch to Safe Zone. I did however notice the following problem running IE9 in the sandbox.

My home page is Yahoo and I opened IE in the Avast sandbox and tried to read the news items. For every one that contained a video, the video would not work. The box containing it wouldn't even show up.

Sandboxie, free or paid?

Some don't like it as it does slow a browser down somewhat.

No, I really don't want a sandbox and I never use the Avast one. I was just reporting a problem I discovered when I tried it out.
