Forum Question: How do you run software in a sandbox in OSX?

I used to run Firefox in a sandbox on my old Windows PC, using a programme called ‘Sandboxie’. This ‘contained’ Firefox and was an additional layer of protection in case of attack / viruses etc. I believe that sandboxing is built into OSX, but don’t know how to access it and make Firefox on the Mac run in a sandbox. Any ideas?

    I’m not familiar with what that program would do. My feeling is that it is not needed on OS X. First, there are no viruses. Second, if it crashed it would just crash. It wouldn’t take the rest of your Mac with it.
