Re: SAVE PAGE FUNCTION DOESN'T WORK

Thanks for the reply. I only use Firefox in Ultimate. I never use IE and I routinely delete the Chrome folder... because it sometimes shows that it's active in Task Manager when I've never used it... and I don't trust Google. That was not the case in the latest tests. So any file I'm trying to overw...

SAVE PAGE FUNCTION DOESN'T WORK

I've noticed this bug for a while but I just did a test to confirm using standalone Firefox and Avant Firefox... the latest version of Ultimate. If I use the FILE > SAVE > SAVE function of a page... say a post here at the forum... the save works. If If I use the FILE > SAVE > SAVE HTML function... i...

LONGER URLs IN URL ALIAS

I use the URL Alias function all the time... but I've noticed that it's limited to about 260 characters when some URLs I use that control server output are longer... such as this one which weighs in at about 310 characters... http://radblast.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/radar/WUNIDS_map?station=ENX&bran...

New Ultimate Version Won't Install

I've twice tried to install the newest Ultimate version over an older 2016 Build 2... and as soon as I start it up, it says there's a new version available. And when I check the version of the installed version... it's still 2016 build 2.

Re: Why Can't I EASILY Restore Avant Layout After Crash?

Problem solved. The compact view option was checked. But that still doesn't answer the question why all my browser options aren't saved so they can easily be restored.

Re: Avant Downloader Constantly Bogs Down

Just a bump since no one's responded in 8 months. I'm now running Win 10 and still having the same problems. I suspect the Avant downloaded interacts differently with servers than do other downloaders. The URL of a video should popup instantly when I click on the download... and it will the first 1-...

Why Can't I EASILY Restore Avant Layout After Crash?

Every six months or so something crashes Avant... and it sets everything the newly installed default mode... and though I have backups... when I do a restore, apparently it doesn't restore the layout I've created.... and which point I start screaming and pulling my hair out because I spent 30 min an...

Re: Avant Downloader Constantly Bogs Down

No responses from the powers that be? Any suggestions for another download plugin for Firefox? I'm looking for one that allows me to directly enter URLs and not just a right click option.

Re: Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

Just a quick update... this problem has resolved itself. Don't ask me why. It's not that I have Avant set for any automatic hot fixes or updates.

Avant Downloader Constantly Bogs Down

I only use the Avant downloader because I can enter a URL as opposed to a right click "save as". I've been downloading some videos and the Avant downloader constantly bogs down if there are more than 3 downloads. I won't be able to create a new task because the window freezes so I can't enter a file...

Re: Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

Before I do anything... the folder in question to save is C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\profile.backup\ But there may be another problem I need to ask about. When I look inside I find only TWO backups C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\profile.backup\.default\2015-08-17\14...

Re: Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

Thanks for the speedy reply. It didn't work... and I can't afford to lose all the info there. It's has my bookmarks, URL aliases etc going back a decade.

Any other suggestions?

Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

I've been using Firefox in the current version of Avant tri-engine... Over the past few days it no longer saves webpages as html. I can save a page as an image and text. When I try to save a page it will tell me if there's an older version I want to overwrite... I click yes, and nothing happens. I t...

Old Functions Don't Work... and long new context menu.

A few days ago... I don't recall doing anything out of the ordinary but suddenly I'd got a popup that the firefox profiles could not be found. I tried shutting down all instances of Avant and Firefox as suggested ( I use the tri-engine version). Nothing helped... and I kept getting the same popup. I...

How Do I Move Avant BookMarks etc To New PC?

I've been using Avant for over 10 years and my old PC has hundreds of bookmarks that I'd like to transfer to my new PC. I've been doing backups... which I assume might contain these bookmarks. So where are they and how would I move them to the new PC. The old PC was Vista 32 bit, the new one is Win ...

Re: Too Many Instances Of Avant/Gecko Running... and won't shut down

It doesn't look like this problem has been fixed with Ultimate b27. And I hope I'm not dreaming... but the release says b24 under Help > About.

I installed this over b.24.

Re: Avast AntiVirus Flags Avant

Oops.... the build I installed was not b17 but b24... so the problem appears between 17 and 24... and I'm getting it again in b27.

Just an FYI. There are some complaints on-line about Avast's Hardened Mode being too aggressive. But it never flagged Avant until build 24

I know the builds come fast and furious. Trying to deal with the problem of multiple instances of avant.exe and gecko.exe refusing to shut down in TaskManager I saw mention of a new beta build on 8-2... which was build 17 of the triengine. My Avant antivirus continues to flag it no matter how many t...

Re: Is it safe to block webkit.exe

If you never use Chrome in Avant you can delete the webkit folder in the Avant Browser folder. It won't show up as engine anymore then. Probably Chrome was looking for updates. Thanks for responding. I thought I had blocked every permission for Chrome to phone home... or track me, but that was year...
