I am not sure what you mean by "mass edit".
You can use Fox to edit a whole page, either the text of the whole page (using foxaction=replace as a parameter in the (:fox form ..:) markup), or editing PTVs, if the page text is structured into a number of PTVs. FoxContacts can give you a good example for this.

FoxEdit is an addon to Fox to provide edit links, and set some page variables, which are useful in a Fox form to edit.
The markup 
   {[foxedit form=FoxEditForm]} 
could be substituted with standard link markup like 
so you could use ?action=foxedit&form=FoxEditForm  instead of

Create a FoxEditForm which does exactly the kind of PTV editing you want for general page edits.

Hope this helps a bit.
