Toppling of a box.

I don’t know if "toppling" is even a word.:uhh:

This is not a homework,just a question.

If I apply a force at A,the box will topple and fall.(Probably because of friction)
If I apply a force at B,the box will move(Probably because the force overcame the friction)

What’s causing it? Torque?
As the distance increase,the effect of force on friction decreases but why?

P.S I am a Grade 10 student.
