Isolated environment enabling of own accord
« on: June 14, 2018, 02:27:55 pm »
Hi all,

I have a problem whereby out of nowhere Firefox will open with a red border around it and an isolated enviroment created in the name 'Firefox'.
All this without me actually creating it?
If I remove the IE then all is well for a period of time then without warning it happens again?

Its not a major issue just slightly confusing. I use Chrome permanently isolated and Firefox not.
Anyone experienced this before or knows why this is happening?

Andy

Hello, Andy.

Welcome to our forum and thank you for your interest in our product.

I think it happens because sometimes ReHIPS reinstalls its rules. It automatically reinstalls rules when it sees changes in Installed programs list. So it can install rules for newly installed programs. So rules for already existing programs like already installed Firefox may also be reinstalled. The best way to go is not to delete rules you don't like (like you don't want Firefox isolated), but instead switch them to the action you want. Just edit the rule and set Action to Allow instead of Allow in isolated environment.
