    Links don't work when Thunderbird is used with Sandboxie


    I'm using Windows 10, version 1803. Recently, I updated Sanboxie from version 5.26 to 5.28. As soon as I did, when I clicked on a link in a sandboxed Thunderbird email, I got the message that I attached below. Several people at the Sandboxie forum said they had the same problem until they updated to 1809. Note: if Thunderbird is used outside of Sanboxie, there is no problem.

    I went back to Sandboxie 5.26 & thought that fixed the problem. However, ocassionally, the problem returns. If I either reboot or log out & then login again, the problem goes away...at least temporarily.

    1. Does anyone know what could cause this or how I could track it down?
    2. Is it safe to update to version 1809, which hasn't been offered to me by Windows Update yet?

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Keyscrambler and Sandboxie

    Hope it helps, it did me.

    My default browser is Chrome, but I do use Firefox and IE.

    I am sure that the Sandboxie configuration fix is exclusive to Keyscrambler and does not include any browser reference. It worked immediately with Sandboxied Chrome, Firefox and IE.

    So it should work OK with any other browser that Sandboxie is compatible for use with.

    It may be that this fix is only needed when Sandboxie is already installed and KS is added afterwards. If KS is already installed and Sandboxie is added afterwards, then the Sandboxie installation wizard should pick up KS as an inherent program and include it in the configuration list. If so, this fix would not be needed.

  3. Keyscrambler and Sandboxie

    Many users including me have found that the new version of Keyscrambler Personal - Free edition 3.1.0.0 for IE, Firefox and now Chrome does not work when the browsers are opened with Sandboxie. This easy fix is how to cure the problem.

    Download Keyscrambler Personal - Free to your Desktop from Download KeyScrambler or some other reputable site. Do not download with a Sandboxied browser.

    Go through the wizard and select your preferences. I suggest you choose the tray icon and for the program to start with Windows opening. You will have to reboot when finished.

    KS will then work perfectly with IE, Firefox and Chrome unsandboxied, but will not work with the browsers Sandboxied.

    Now follow this :-

    Open Sandboxie Control. Then -
    Sandbox>Defaultbox>Sandbox Settings>Resourse Access-expand>IPC Access-expand>Direct Access>ADD (2 items) as under.

    In panel Add Resource Name - add both these in turn, copy/paste using CNTRL+C for copy and CNTRL+V for paste :-

    Add>\RPC Control\KSControlEp.Default*>OK - then :-
    Add>BaseNamedObjects*\KSSettingsEvent*>OK - then :-
    Click OK at bottom of Control Panel.

    Open browsers with Sandboxie. The KS icon should show in the tray.
    Orange = not active but ON, Green = active, Black animated = traffic, Red = OFF - RT click, select KS ON.

    Browsers IE, Firefox and Chrome opened with Sandboxie will now have KS working perfectly.
    This procedure should work with the paid versions of KS.

    All done.
