    Hi everyone!
    I already asked to SBIE support and it seems they don't know how this can happen and they should have my printer to test ( a canon mp600 )

    so..read carefully: when I print something from the browser (FF...for example a pdf opened in the browser with ff in-built pdf viewer and I click on the printer icon in the pdf viewer). the message below shows up.
    But I can config the printer and print without double clicking and allowing those messages in the box

    wha does it mean this? the printer can escape the SB??? should I be worried?

    thank you


    EDIT : now they say it's ok..nothing is escaping the SB. ok thank you anyway sorry

    Yes, nothing is escaped, I believe that the print process does not work under Sandboxie, such as antivirus or drivers do not work and generate errors if installed under Sandboxie.

    Sandboxie virtualization does allow contact with your printer. ReHIPS isolation allows it, too. COMODO sandbox does not -- all you can do is download your print job as a PDF, and print that.
