ReHIPS / Re: Firefox as a default browser
« Last post by Stephen on November 04, 2019, 04:25:02 pm »
I disabled checking if Firefox is my default browser. It seems to work, that is I'm not being asked if I want to set it as my default browser.

As regards the background color of the Options pages, I have the same version of Firefox as you, but in my case if I start Firefox with ReHIPS disabled, the Options etc. pages are dark. If I enable ReHIPS and start Firefox, then the Options etc. pages are white. I have unchecked Copy User Data.

I don't know if it's relevant, I installed an add-on to Firefox while ReHIPS was disabled. When I started Firefox with ReHIPS enabled, the add-on was missing. I installed it again.

It's as if there are two separate installations of Firefox (at least as far as the settings are concerned), one with ReHIPS disabled and another with ReHIPS enabled.

ReHIPS / Re: Firefox as a default browser

I remember you're using Windows 10. From Windows 10 programs are not allowed to explicitly set themselves as default file handlers. So Firefox can't explicitly tell: now I handle http, use only me. Instead it shows a Settings->Default apps window and humbly waits for the user to set it as default. This requires interaction with shell and isolated Firefox can't do it. And to be honest, you don't need it. Only file associations for your real user matter, they define which browser will be opened for http. So the best way in this case is to simply disable this check for isolated firefox.

Background color is probably related to Set Hooks being disallowed (which is the case in firefox default rules). I have firefox 70.0.1 and I see white background in both isolated and non-isolated firefoxes. Does it pose any difficulty?

ReHIPS / Firefox as a default browser
« Last post by Stephen on November 03, 2019, 09:59:10 am »
When I start Firefox in an IE I am always asked if I want it to be my default browser. if I go to Firefox settings I cannot make Firefox my default browser because the setting does not change when I click on it. When I start Firefox with ReHIPS disabled, then the pop up about making it my default browser does not come up.

What can I do to make Firefox my default browser when it's running in an IE?

When I run Firefox with ReHIPS disabled, then the Firefox Options pages have a dark background. However, when I run Firefox in an IE the same pages are shown in their default white background. Why is there this difference?

My suspicion is that these problems are related.

To give a more complete picture I should add that I checked the Copy User Data, started Firefox and then after closing Firefox I unchecked it. Anyway, even if I check it again, the problems that I described above continue to exist.
In Program Settings, Privileges I have checked Set Hooks and unchecked Use Separate Desktop.

Hello, kruts. Thank you for your interest in ReHIPS and welcome to our forum.

There was at least one documented and researched issue, it's described here https://forum.rehips.com/index.php?topic=11168 In short words, this was not ReHIPS fault, but Bitdefender funny way of acting.

Bitdefender - is Rehips compatible with Bitdefender? I installed Rehips and it installed successfully but when I attempt to run a program in Isolation like excel.exe it does not work and the ui becomes unstable and I just have to close down Rehips. I didn't make any modification to bitdefender like adding an exception or adding a certificate thumbprint of rehips into bitdefender but I could try that when I go back to work

Are there any known issues or does it work with bitdefender?

ReHIPS / Re: Is there a conflict with sandboxie?
« Last post by Umbra on October 28, 2019, 07:30:49 pm »
specifically the fact that a sandboxed program does not make any changes out of its sandbox
so do ReHIPS, i dont see how a sandboxed program can change something outside the Isolated Environment (unless you allow it via the settings), it would defeat ReHIPS purpose.
Sandboxie uses a single container where all the sandboxes you created are grouped.
ReHIPS also has a container but its isolation is made via hardened user profiles (those are the "sandboxes"); maybe it is what you meant by "changes outside its sandbox"

maybe you can give us an example.

Thanks fixer for the respond, was just a thought.

Thank you Umbra, actually I was not isolating those with ReHIPS, just they are not be displayed while ReHIPS processes are running. Rehips is definitely more active and the better alternative to sandboxie with as far as I understand more broad securtity features and that's why is my choice for a switch when sandboxie will be fully not functional. For the time I try to use them synchronously, sandboxie virtualization offers some features I'm used to that do not (I think) exist in ReHIPS, specifically the fact that a sandboxed program does not make any changes out of its sandbox

4. Suppose I have a rule to block/isolate notepad.exe . What I mean by Passive Mode is:
I run notepad >> Rehips blocks/isolates nothing >> notepad runs as usual >> Rehips logs/notifies me that notepad is blocked/isolated
In other words, If I have Standard Mode enabled then:
Passive Mode = Disabled Mode + Standard Mode logs and notifications
This would be great for those who want to check their rules before enabling Lockdown Mode.
i +1 this, would be useful for me too since i create an heavy list of LOLbins blocks rules.

ps: I was a Faronics-AntiExe user, Rehips beats it performance-wise, and it's free too at least by now  :) good job guys!
not really free, the demo (the free thingy) allows only 10 isolated processes which nullify the use of multi-processes browsers.

i tested both together by curiosity long time ago, i saw this conflict.
Anyway i don't see the point of isolating the same program with 2 sandboxes at same time, not saying Sandboxie is abandoned, not worth wastin g time on it while ReHIPS is obviously superior.

No, if a process is allowed, ReHIPS lets it execute as is and doesn't impose any limitations.

Alert window is always opened on the same desktop the main ReHIPS Control Center is opened on. It doesn't depend on desktop of the program the alert is notifying about or on the user the program is executed from.
