I have raised problems on many vendors Forum`s and never once had any more success than using a general Forum like this one.

Problem - conflict between Sandboxie and Online Armor.

Sandboxie is my standard procedure to open my Firefox browser.
I really like OA, it is superb, but it gave so many "Not Responding" on certain sites that I had to change to ZoneAlarm, which functions perfectly with no problems whatsoever.

A typical site giving "Not responding" with OA + SBxie is :-

There are others. I cannot find a common factor for this, neither can I see how to stop it by configuring SBxie or OA.

Can anybody using these two programs please check the above site and see what happens.
If there is no problem, what do you feel is wrong in my case ? If there is a problem, then it does not look good for using these two programs together.

I would be very grateful if anybody can spot the "bug", because so far all my enquiries have resulted in nothing.

My existing set-up is :-

Windows 2002 XP Home, SP3
Firefox 3.6.8, AVG 2011 Free 10.0.1170, Sandboxie Free 3.50
ZoneAlarm, SpywareBlaster 4.3
NoScript, Adblock Plus, KeyScrambler, WOT
IE8 is my secondary browser

PS :- I had to add this comment as it is very important -
OA works impeccably when using an unSandboxied Firefox and IE. Absolutely no problems.
