I guess you installed fox.php with a include_once(...) in config.php?

If you did then $FoxAuth = 'read';  in local/Forum.php will not be
taken into account, because local/Forum.php loads later than

Try in config.php:

$group = PageVarr($pagename, '$Group');
if ($group=='Forum') {
   $FoxAuth = 'read';
