As the window is made smaller, the search box remains static and larger;
so this pushes the log-in/out user controls outside of the existing window.

If the search window in top of the FoxBox were to resize smaller, these
controls could remain available; especially when using the view allowed
when setup was to allow FoxBox to be used as regular browser in a site.

Thank you for your continued efforts & support for our PPC Macs.

    A reasonable suggestion, but not one I have any control over. You'd have to ask Google about that.

    The issue as I've seen it, the problem exists only in the FoxBox browser header
    because others including full TenFourFox seem to have a movable search box.

    When the page is made narrower, it worked in full TenFourFx browser; not @ Google.
    At least yesterday when I made a few dozen FoxBoxes and tested each feature
    in a variety of ways. The main browser when used for Gmail worked as expected.

    However there have been a few changes at google in their mail among other
    online features ~ and they are pushing their own brand now, above all others.

    At this time, I'm using a Late 2012 Mac mini i7 2.3GHz server w/ 10.11.6.
    And each of the browsers available to me in this (three) each have varying
    different issues with Google email. ~ The SeaMonkey features a text menubar
    & no avatar the logout button redirects (as did FoxBox) to Google+ Discovery.

    Safari renders oddly also. Tried to give me the Mobile browser in OS X 10.11.6...
    Not satisfactory at all. Then when I changed it to Desktop, it gave me Basic HTML.

    Thank you for getting back to me... :)

    Yet another inquiry:

    Riddle me this...

    How can make a 'FoxBox for Gmail' inside the Guest User account
    in Leopard 10.5.8, that would survive parameters of the temp user?

    The default outdated Safari 5.0.6 being what it is, goes without saying.
    So the FoxBox for Gmail could be an answer; there's not much else.
    Tried a few things, parental controls & so on; unhappy with results.

    Thanks again!
