A. THE BUG/ISSUE (Varies from issue to issue)
[ol]- Summary - Give a clear summary in the topic subject, NOT here.
- Can U reproduce the problem & if so how reliably?: On my system I can reproduce it with 100% reliability.
If U can, exact steps to reproduce. If not, exactly what U did & what happened:
a: Start opera.exe or chrome.exe etc outside of the sandbox and go to a site that shows the framerate (might need a 120Hz monitor to see difference, I will be supplying sites further down)
b: Do “a:” but start the browser as Fully Virtualized.
c: Compare the results, for me the FV browser shows no visual difference from 60 and 120 FPS while on another test it didn’t even detect anything above 30Hz, while the browser which is not sandboxed shows a clear difference between 60 and 120 FPS and the other test detects up to 120Hz.
- If not obvious, what U expected to happen: I expected the fully virtualized environment to be able to show frame rates up to the framerate of the monitor used, which it does not (or it detects the wrong monitor)
- If a software compatibility problem have U tried the conflict FAQ?: Don’t think so.
- Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version: Opera and Comodo Dragon, however only browser since they are the only I really know how to test, if anyone knows a program that tests this I can try that too. :S
Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how U tried to fix it etc: My guess is that the FV sandbox either deliberately limits the framerate to whatever or detects the wrong monitor in multi-monitor setups.
B. YOUR SETUP (Likely the same for each issue, so you can copy forward)
[ol]- Exact CIS version & configuration: CIS 6.3.297838.2953 , My own configuration.
- Modules enabled & level. D+/HIPS, Autosandbox/BBlocker, Firewall, & AV: HIPS on Safe mode, BB turned off, Firewall on Custom, AV on stateful.
- Have U made any other changes to the default config? (egs here.): Ooooh yes, lots.
Have U updated (without uninstall) from a CIS 5?: No.
[li]if so, have U tried a a clean reinstall - if not please do?: N/A
[/li]- Have U imported a config from a previous version of CIS: Yes
[li]if so, have U tried a standard config - if not please do: Yes, didn’t help.
[/li]- OS version, SP, 32/64 bit, UAC setting, account type, V.Machine used: Windows 8.1 64bit, UAC turned off completely through registry, Administrator account, not a virtual machine.
Other security/s’box software a) currently installed b) installed since OS: a= AntiLogger Free b= Windows Defender & Windows Firewall 88)
I’m going to speak somewhat more freely here.
In Screenshot 1.png you will to the left see the sandboxed Opera and that the website doesn’t detect a refresh rate over 30Hz and on the right side you’ll see the non-sandboxed opera and how it shows up to 119 FPS (I took the screenshot a little early so it didn’t have time to go up to 120FPS and show the Hz)
In Screenshot 2.png you can’t really see anything special since you can’t see the refresh rate in action from a screenshot, but I’ll explain. You can see that the balls have their own names: A1, A2, B1, B2. I’ll start by explaining them, A1 is a ball that shows in 60FPS in the virtualized browser, A2 is a ball that shows in 120FPS in the virtualized browser, B1 is a ball that shows in 60FPS in the non-virtualized browser, B2 is a ball that shows in 120 FPS in the non-virtualized browser. I should also clarify that I have a 120Hz monitor. So the problem here is that A1 and A2 looks exactly the same to the viewer, a bit stuttery as if they both showed in sub 60 FPS while B1 and B2 shows a BIG difference where B1 looks pretty much the same as A1 and A2 but B2 shows muuch smoother, so to clarify, A2 looks like A1 and B1 while it SHOULD look like B2.
I believe this might be the source of some of my issues I’ve seen with browsers in FV sandbox, I generally feel they are slower in the GUI, a bit stuttery perhaps.
