I use Sandboxie for when I know the sites I'm going to probably have malware on them, and Malwarebytes detected some of the sites as unsafe, is that normal, or is that Sandboxie not working correctly?

Are you running Malwarebytes within the sandbox? If so, that would prevent it from functioning properly. See this topic.

When attempting to go to a potential malicious website, Malicious Website Blocking (IP Protection) will block the attempt and provide an alert.

Nope I just got it running outside the Sandbox, but it still blocked Bad sites inside the sandbox, not 100% sure if that's normal or not

Malwarebytes Pro (which includes Malicious Website Blocking) can run along Sandboxie and still do what it is supposed to do. See this topic.
