Leave the sandbox on. The point of Sandbox is basically to help isolate questionable applications from doing anything serious to your computer. Basically, think of it as a baby playpen for programs. Before you let the baby run around, trashing your home electronics by shoving random crap into the slots or throwing the toys all over the place, the pen allows the baby to do things you will allow it to do. When you are sure the baby isn't going to do all the particularly nasty things in the house, you let them be able to do more outside of it.
I believe Maxxwire in one of the other threads touts how it is best to have a HIPS (Host Intrusion Protection System) in place and sandboxing is part of it. Firewall is only there to go "You want to come into this port or go out this port..." Sandboxing, if I understand it correctly, is basically a nanny on programs, watching what it does and if it does something that isn't right, it stops it dead in its tracks.
