I have parity 1.6.8 installed on OSX 10.13.6
Parity used to work by running to .app file and then accessing http://127.0.0.1:8180/#/home on a web browser.
Now it tells me, "Unable to make a connection to the Parity Secure API. To update your secure token or to generate a new one, run (parity signer new-token) and paste the generated token into the space below."
I open Terminal and type in parity signer new-token but returns
-bash: parity: command not found
I go to https://www.parity.io/ethereum/#download to download the stable version of Parity but when I double click on it opens up my text editor with a bunch of code in it without installing the app.
How can I get Parity going again? I'd also like to be able to prevent Parity from downloading the blockchain when I start it.
My objective is to check to see if a wallet I created on parity a while ago has any funds in it.
