Sandboxie-Start of FirefoxPortable requires Admin-Password

Since having updated my Windows 10 to Version 1809 each Sandboxie-Start of FirefoxPortable  (or ChromePortable or SeamonkeyPortable) requires Admin-Password - is there some kind of workaround?

  • Does it ask for the password outside of a sandbox?

    No, it doesn't.

    1 - Sandboxie 5.30, Windows 10 x64 bit 1809  (or Windows 10 x64 bit 1903 - I tested both)
    2 - Portebleapps-FirefoxPortable
    3 - Avira Antivirus Free (actualized version)
    4 - Each time I start FirefoxPortable.exe (Portebleapps-FirefoxPortable)
    5 - it occurs in a new sandbox with default settings
    6 - UAC-message ("Möchten Sie zulassen, daß durch diese App Änderungen an Ihrem Gerät durchgeführt werden - Ja/Nein")

    Hi stef,

    Can I also get a copy of your Sandboxie configuration file?

    Configure--> Edit configuration
    Copy-paste the contents here

    Added content: Since you are on Windows 10 1903, please try the latest beta, which addressed permission issues:
    Sbie beta version 5.31.2

    Thanks!

    Hi stef,

    Thanks, the configuration doesn't show me anything weird (which is good). I tested the scenario, and even if I allow it to run as administrator, this program doesn't start for me in the Sandbox.

    This is what worked for me:
    Install Firefox Portable directly in the Sandbox, ignore the autorecover prompts. When the installation completes, close it (don't select Run Firefox...). After that, navigate to the Sandboxed location where you installed it and launch it.

    Regards,
