TenFourFoxBox feedback

First off, I'm very grateful for the project.

I use FoxBoxes all the time. So fast!! Love 'em. Love that closing them quits them, like System Prefs et al.

Using for Facebook, I find bugs in deleting text: I can generally delete just one character using backspace, after which it has no effect or will stick the cursor behind the last undeleted character. If editing text using backspace and it does delete all the characters, though I won't see it onscreen, blank spaces will be left. So while I'll see "H ow are you?" on a newer device, "How are you?" will be what I edited on Facebook and how I'll see it even returning to the page in a FoxBox or the full browser.

This issue has been present for a few releases now, and as it continues in FPR1, I realized I ought report it. Confirmed all the backspace quirks still occurring in 7400 and G5 Boxes on FB.

Thanks again for the amazing browsers keeping my original Cube and Late 2004 G5 usable daily.

    Also, with 7400 only on my Cube: I can open a Box with the full browser running, but I can't open TenFourFox if I have a TenFourFoxBox running. Confirmed the issue continues with FPR1.

    Vid, please see here for the Facebook issue:

    The short answer is: use the Forward Delete key for now.

    For your issue starting TenFourFox with a Foxbox already running, see the manual:
    "Starting and stopping foxboxes"
