What you sent is a PDF file, but not the requested FULL, COMPLETE TeX
source file (PLUS THE LOG FILE). What you show below (some excerpts
from your document preamble?) do not qualify as a FULL TEST FILE.

Your report is still useless.

 v> in the source I have:

 v> \RequirePackage[perpage,ruled,para*]{manyfoot}
 v> \DeclareNewFootnote[para]{A} \DeclareNewFootnote[para]{B}

 v> \newcommand{\fnt}[1]{\footnotetextA{\gr{#1}}}

 v> \newcommand{\fn}[1]{% \leavevmode\unskip%
 v> \ifthenelse{\value{nxnotes} = 0}% first note in this chapter
 v> {\setcounter{nxnotes}{1}%
 v> \footnotetextA{{\gr\bfseries\thechnum:\scriptsize\thevsnum}\nobreakspace\gr{#1}}%
 v> }{%
 v> \footnotetextA{{\gr\bfseries\scriptsize\thevsnum}\nobreakspace\gr{#1}}%
 v> }%
 v> }

 v> \newcommand{\fnRNT}[1]{ \leavevmode\unskip%
 v> \ifthenelse{\value{nnotes} = 0}% first note in this chapter
 v> {\setcounter{nnotes}{1}%
 v> \footnotetextB{{\gr\bfseries\thechnum:\scriptsize\thevsnum}\nobreakspace\ru{#1}}%

 v> \footnotetextB{{\gr\bfseries\scriptsize\thevsnum}\nobreakspace\ru{#1}}%
