Yes, interesting and disappointing. I never used the browser extension either, but as a long time Avast user I find the evidence in that article has lessened my trust in Avast.

Since installing the latest Avast 2015 version and using it alongside the latest Sandboxie 4.13.7 version an old conflict has re-emerged for me. Both my Opera Email Client and Simple Mail extension in Waterfox are unable to send/receive while running in a sandbox. For this reason I've temporarily uninstalled Avast until I decide which direction to go in order to resolve the problem.

Under the circumstances, I'm now leaning towards choosing an alternative AV rather than reverting to an old build of Sandboxie.
