I had this problem at first and it was simple to fix. The FoxBox app needs to be in the same Applications folder as TenFourFox to start with. And then (my mistake) was to move both TenFourFox and FoxBox into another directory (folder on my Mac). It refused to start (exactly as you described). I moved it back into the Applications folder and it worked fine. I also copied over the 'recommendation' files to see how it worked. i am using an old Mac running 10.4 PPC and it just works rather well. However plug in are not enabled so It may be a little less secure as i normally use DoNotTrack and uBlock and then there is the Quicktime enabler which might not work.
Well. I am not sure how to reply to all circumstances on the FoxBox. I have a bog standard Mac PPC G4 running 10.4 . I don't use FoxBox very much as it ignores all the FireFox plug-ins you may have. It sort of bypasses all that for full flat-out speed increase. Its a trade off security v speed. It does speed up everything.
The first thing you should look at is the FoxBox app start up as if in the opening 'Preferences' dialogue box and set that to the url of whatever site you want. In my case I changed it from Google to site specific 'gmail', and then hit 'create' to make a new Fox box. It really is that easy. Keep it alongside the Ten4 Browser application (not in another folder or anywhere else). If it does'nt work then its kinda hard to figure out why. We all run the same PPC Mac system and if 104Fox browser works, then so will FoxBox.
Neal - FoxBox has to be in APPLICATIIONS folder (nowhere else) and it has to be beside (next to) the TenFourFox Browser to work. If it isn't - then it can't find it. Effectively they need each other to work.
After I experimented a while with it, I realized that the TenFourFox
application had to be /only/ in the Application Folder; by itself. It
could not be in a TenFourFox folder in the Application folder.
Likewise, the FoxBox application had to be by itself in the Application
Even if the two were together in the TenFourFox folder in the
Application folder the FoxBox application would look only in the
Application folder and not in the TenFourFox folder in the Application
Would it be possible to give the FoxBox application more capability to
find the "parent" application?
Although I considered this, the problem is that there are many
other places to put the application and it would not be feasible to
have the system look for TenFourFox in every possible location
(plus, if it came up with multiple hits, then I'd have to figure
out how to disambiguate on top of that).
Thanks, SPearl, for helping out since I'm out of the country for
the next couple weeks.
