Some of the FoxBoxes retain older version TenFourFox in their Get Info version data
and this seems to relate to issues in their performance. ~ Resetting or removal of FxBx
Application Support files does not refresh the background info, nor reset the issues of
the retained older browser version.

{Other examples of render issues, inflexible FoxBox search windows in Gmail FoxBoxes
that do not flex or articulate, were in email that didn't get to you. ~ Regular TenFourFox
and gmail does not exhibit this dysfunction. There, search box renders as flexible space.
~ I could re-send those to Webmaster URL, they're in my gmail sent mail section.}

While my Mac Mini G4 (late 2005) w/ 10.5.8 runs latest TenFourFox; & have followed
direction in running FoxBoxes. Other issue when using Fox Box for Gmail remains.
Certain FxBx versions do not create working Log Out window, instead goes to Google
+ contents. Not sure how I ever got one that gives me user Avatar icon to exit FxBox.

And still showing icon issues (tiny squares with numbers inside) on most pages instead
of arrows or other web page click-ons. (examples available, if they attach in order)

So I'm at a loss. The build version of FoxBox varies from older v 45 (though not present)
similar to FoxBox User Guide; to v 52 in later NewFoxBox. Sample file Gmail in download file
seem to prefer default and defective code for creating bad box that does not allow Log out.
Haven't been able to create or revise these defective Gmail fox boxes, revert to v 42 though
say FPR4.

And had noticed previous inquiry went w/o reply.
As time goes by, the issue only snowballed.

{PS: can I revert the 'about:config' setting back/original
to resolve tiny icon issue in 10.5.8? (This was a fix
to large A icons, with tiny latin font inside, that were
populating most Apple site pages.} Tiny box icons remain.

Thank you for your time. These has been an issue since Sept 2017.

    The above is still true, using template or pre-made (old?) FoxBox from
    the download at TenFourFox site. The foxboxes don't refresh, nor do
    these issues cease. Gmail renders in TenFourFox browser as expected
    but static search bar in FoxBox won't get small enough to allow view
    of main login bar, especially in 12-inch iBook G4; in standard resolution.

    ~ And the other issue remains to be, in main TenFourFox browser with
    "tiny icons" across various sites that have been rendering as boxes
    with numbers inside. Note the screenshot from Apple Support today.

    This 2nd issue may relate to hold-over of some 'about:config' settings
    changed a year or so ago, to stop Apple font problems. And TenFourFox
    FPR version 5 still has these. Would all these effects go away if I remove
    all of the vestige parts of TenFourFox, and import bookmarks from other
    Mac? ~ A curious lack of response from Staff tells me more than words.

    In any event...
    Thank you for your good work, even when there are glaring flaws at times.
