new Orca use

I just installed Orca to see if it avoids some problems I was having with Avant. I have some questions: 1. Some of the Avant bookmarks did not migrate to Orca. Is there any way to remedy/update this? 2. My "Links" bar that I have on Avant is not shown by Orca, though the Links folder in Bookmarks wa...

Hangs half the time: help?

:( This is a follow-up to my post of 12-17, "Avant naps." My browser hangs about half the time I click to go to a new page. I can click to open 2 or 3 pages (in new window) and all exoerience the same problem. The only way I can clear it is to END Avant with Windows task manager. Then when I restart...

Avant naps

For about the past 4-6 weeks my Avant Browser occasionally goes to sleep -- always when I'm asking for a new page (which I usually open in a new window). It starts to get the page then goes to sleep with no activity. Usually I can return to my original page, open the wanted page a 2nd time in a(noth...

deleting

How can one delete the history of site access that's kept in the additional home page drop-down menu? Deleting normally (recent, typed, etc.) has no effect.

Thanks.

Re: transfer bookmarks

see above post. Well, it's a new day. I just logged on and started Avant. All the bookmarks that were lost last night (every one of them) have returned home! Only heaven knows where they went.

Re: transfer bookmarks

Thanks. I'll try it I just discovered another partly related problem. I'm running avant as I usually do and noticed that ALL of my bookmarks are gone. The only thing I did since last use is to sign up for the online storage stuff (of which I no nothing -- see other post). I think it uploaded stuff; ...

transfer bookmarks

I established a new local user in WIN2000. Avant started as it does for the first time. How can I copy avant bookmarks from my past working user to the avant of the new user?

HOT FIX??

I'm running 11.7 Build 15, with No notice from Avant on new releases. When I opened Avant I got a popup window with the Avant logo asking if I wanted to downlaod an "important" hot fix. I declined -- just didn't smell right. Is there a hot fix for my browser from avant?

Re: Constipation

Yes, my IE is version6.0.+. You suspect the silly IE engine? I don't have the problem when I actually use IE, though I do that seldom.

Re: Constipation

Thanks, but after the upgrade I still have the problem. The computer/browser freeze occurs randomly, when I preform some function in the browser e.g. change windows, scroll down, etc. The computer (running Win2000) jumps to and stays at 100% utilization for average 30+ seconds. I can do a few other ...

Constipation

My 11.6 Build 20 routinely gets constipated. During a request (including start) the computer often runs at 100% for many seconds to more than a minute while the browser just sits there quietly. After a while it usually then continues; once in a while it just dies and I have to end the session with T...

Avant constipation

Every now and then (~every three uses...) Avant gets constipated and freezes. I'm always running multiple Avant windows. My CPU usage goes to 100% and most other running programs freeze. Usually it snaps out of it, with a flurry of all of my various clicks, in 2-3 minutes. Sometimes I have to end Av...

Default browser

I have optioned Internet Explorer to be my default browser (deference to my wife) -- many times. I've never done that for Avant. Yet Avant keeps hijacking the default position. Why is that? How can I get it to stop doing it? BTW, I didn't have this problem until I upgraded to 11.5 Build 11.
