Re: bookmarks bar

Alright, for some reason things are now back to normal, although I have no idea why. I'm thinking maybe it's because I upgraded to IE8, but I'm not sure. All the icons are back and my favourites (including folders) show up, without having a "Links" folder. I was very close to switching to another br...

Re: bookmarks bar

No, I don't and I haven't had such a folder for quite some time. The bookmarks bar would just display all my favourites, including the folders. Upon clicking a folder I would just get a submenu where I could click the link I wanted. However, I have tried creating a Links folder again and add a bunch...

Re: Empty Bookmarks Bar

Hello, I have a similar problem but not entirely the same. My bookmarks bar is completely empty (see attached screenshot). I don't have the icons to add/organize bookmarks, and no Bookmarks are showing in the bar. I have Avant Browser set to use my IE favorites and they're all still there when I cli...

Yes of course, perhaps I wasn't being clear on that in my post :)

Re: Control F not working?

Can you post some system info, like what version of Avant Browser you are using and what operating system you're running?

Re: How can i...?

If you want people to download it off your site (ie. your server) you have to put the .exe file on your server and put a link to it on your site. However, it may be easier to just place a link to this page on your site. That way when there's a new version released people who click on the link on you...

Re: Green screen on some Videos

It's most likely NOT an Avant Browser problem. Do you have the same problem in Internet Explorer?

Do you have any third party ad-blocking software? And do you have the same problem in Internet Explorer?

Re: Ad-blocker? Or not?

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about :? Could you post a screenshot of that message? Avant's ad-blocker usually just shows a blank space where the add should be. No messages or anything.

Re: What really is Avant Browser?

You may have uninstalled IE in XP, but you didn't uninstall Trident, which is the engine it a shell for--just like Avant. If you had, Avant wouldn't work either. *sigh* Every single time someone must point that out. I am fully aware of that, thanks. You could be right about IE being essential for t...

Out of curioisity, why uninstall IE? Because you don't need it and never use it? That's a good enough reason for me. In XP I have uninstalled IE (using nliteos) and I've never ever missed it. Avant is pretty much my only browser. I've got Firefox installed for testing purposes now and then but that...

Have you tried renaming avant.exe to iexplore.exe? In many cases this seems to solve similar problems.

Re: AutoFill

Do you use the Autofill option for other sites? If not you can disable it entirely (tools -> avant browser options -> autofill). If you do use it for other sites I don't know if there's a solution for your problem. There are indeed some sites where it keeps asking to store the password even though y...

Re: Firefox can, IE7 Can, Avant Can't !?

Do you mean your Adsense account or is that something different? Because I can log into mine without problem. What OS are you running? I've noticed that under Vista Avant acts a bit weird sometimes when visiting forums.

Re: select the address bar

Press F6. I just found this out by accident a couple days ago. To set the focus back on the page pressing F7 seems to work. However, if you've got multiple tabs open pressing F7 will switch to the previous tab. You can then go back to the next tab by pressing F8.
