    "sandbox gives this version 1 star"

    October 1, 2012  |   By hikergirl

    Pros

    none, that I can find

    Cons

    In sandbox: cursor hangs; window freezes, some times it jumps, some times it flashes. When I type, I type along and wait for up to one minute for the typing to fill in. Waiting for pages to load is an exercise in patience. If, under normal circumstances, an operation takes one minute, expect it to take an hour in sandbox.

    Summary

    I had the free v.6 and upgraded to paid version w/sandbox option. Once I figured my browsing/typing problems were due to the sandbox, I found an option in the Firefox icon. Paid version expired, so I updated to free v.7, where there is no sandbox default. I tried all the suggestions to shut it off - to no avail. Now, I have to find if v.6 is still available.
