This is not something we are planning on fixing soon, however I did some testing and have a workaround you can apply at your own discretion -(you will be punching a hole in your Sandbox like with any template, so keep that in mind, and if possible, use this Sandbox just for the emoji/browser app) - :
Close your Sandboxed appsRight-click on your desired Sandbox --> Sandbox Settings ---> Resource Access ---> IPC Access--> Direct AccessClick "Add" Paste the following:\BaseNamedObjects\[CoreUI]-PID*Ok and Apply your way outRe-launch the browser in the Sandbox you applied the changes to and re-test the emojis.
As an alternative method, you may want to use an emoji website which will allow you to copy directly within the browser. An online search will help you find them right away. Of course, up to you.
In reply to Barb@Sophos:
Brilliant Barb - thanks a million - it worked fine.
Hopefully, my AV will protect against the Sandboxie template hole,
making the risk minimal.
