FoxBox, gmail, FPR29 and JavaScript

(I'm putting this in problems but it could have been in questions as well...)

I'm not 100% sure about this but I think that Gmail stopped working from within the TenFourFoxBox thing after updating to FPR29.

I've used the already made Box that came with the bundle from the start (Folder 'Things to Try'), for years.

I never really logged out of it, so it would open to my account directly. Since the update (it might have been after a crash right before the update though, like I said I'm not 100% sure - it could be new google account extra req as well), when I open the file it shows that I'm signed out from 'that account' and then when I select the account to connect, Gmail tells me it can't sign me in because: "The browser that you're using doesn't support JavaScript, or has JavaScript turned off.
To keep your Google Account secure, try signing in on a browser that has JavaScript turned on." - Plus a (Learn more) link -

The Main app itself has JavaScript enabled and an account there works fine, but, for me, the cool aspect of having a Box for that as well is that I could have 2 gmail accounts opened at the same time, plus now I'm afraid to sign out from the one that works in main app to get the same result afterwards...)

Am I the only one experiencing this?
Is there anything I can do about it?
Thanks :)

*version G5 of the app - hardware is late 2005*

    The only advice I can give here is: Re-build the FoxBox (delete the old one and then start to make a new one).

    I am having the same problem, but it just started.
    The description above is the same for me.
    Rebuilding FoxBox didn't solve the problem.

    Thanks Chris (chtrusch). Sometimes solutions are simple indeed. It worked right away and I didn't have to delete anything.

    To gilbert: Try creating a new box using - name it what you want. I used URL - and it worked. Good luck!

    I will add a tiny detail that probably doesn't change anything. I did update/upgrade to FPR30 prior to creating a new FoxBox...
