    Can i run firefox and Google chrome browser run in sndbox like Internet explorer? Why am I asking is that whenever I try to run firefox, the Sandboxie shows an error message with a popup windows that redirect me to sandboxie forum in internet explorer, where I can't find any solution. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but all in vain. How do you all (the sandboxie users) run firefox and chrome browsers in a sandbox?</p>

    Although Chrome can be considered secure compared to other browsers because it uses system built-in security mechanisms (Windows Vista and above) and it has good sandbox, every software you run will have vulnerabilities sooner or later - especially browsers - and Chrome is no exception. I agree that Sandboxie can be used as additional layer of security for any vulnerabilities that would allow attackers to bypass Chrome's sandbox.
    Besides, Sandboxie is in constant updation.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled sandboxie. I've only one default sandbox that is internet explorer and now there is no problem running firefox directly unsandboxed.:D

    Since you have the Pro version,you can make use of 'Forced Programs' in Sandboxie to run all the browsers sandboxed.You can have separate sandbox for each browser.
