Re: [Chrome settings] Connect to chrome don't work !

Just noting that this problem still exists and wondering whether a fix is likely or if this is the way it is to be? TIA

Chrome settings - cannot sign in

Using 2013 b106 on Win 8 x64. I am unable to sign into Google Chrome via the chrome settings page. The page opens fine. I click on the "sign in to chrome" button and a window opens. I put the user/pass in and select sign-in and that window closes and else nothing appears to happen. Reloading the set...

Re: Popup Blocker Override Not Working

I had a couple of sites that appeared to have their pop up blocked. However, it wasnt the ad blocker. It looks like they were opening in the background but not having a tab created. I selected the option under the tools menu to "open new tabs in the foreground" and that fixed it for me. I dont know ...

Re: Firefox Add-Ons

And be wary if you use the sign in option of Avant. If you use the "switch account" feature, all your firefox options and addons (for avant) are deleted and you have to start again.

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

This is effectively a bump to say it is still doing it in build 193. To recap as a summary of the problem 1 - if you exit Avant with tabs open and then re-open Avant, the cache folder in \AppData\Local\Mozilla\Avant\Profiles\3osvj2fe.default\ gets renamed to Cache.Trash and a new Cache folder is cre...

Re: Ultimate 2012 build 175: History not working

Visit a couple of sites. Then close ALL the tabs. Then exit Avant. Restart Avant and see if the history is there.

Then do the same again but leave at least one tab open before exiting Avant. Is the history still present when you restart?

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

I can confirm. Just Avant Browser uses it's own cache strategy, though it has cleared the cache saved on the disk, I have no idea whether it will actually affect the loading speed. Anyway, I have recorded the problem and see how the developer responds. I can imagine that people with fast broadband ...

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

No virus or malware and no dodgy sites visited. With a clean cache, it can load just the google homepage, leave that tab open and close avant, re-open avant and the cache.trash happens. Do, the same but close the tabs before exiting avant and there is no problem and the cache remains.

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

Ok. I think I have it resolved and it is probably a bug. The Cache.Trash* folder is created when firefox detects a corrupt cache. It then starts a new empty one. Typically this happens after a crash in firefox (but not exclusively) If I close Avant with tabs open then restart avant the cache is rena...

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

I just tried an old version (build 138) and that has the problem. I also tried a clean install of Win 7 x64 and kept Avant default settings and that too cleared the cache on exit. I initially referred to this as just Firefox but I can see that it doesnt matter if the pages are rendered using ie or f...

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

Did you checked this option when exiting Avant browser? 1.jpg If you checked this option, the cache will be cleared Yes. That option is unselected. As are all the options in Avant Options>Exit>automatically clear..... I take it that no-one else is suffering this issue? A fast internet connection wo...

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

Avant has 1.1 MB and if I exit, that will go back to zero (firefox does not) Where do you get the data? From tools>mozilla>options>advanced>network>cached web content or about:cache page? In Firefox below cache web content I can see it tells "Your web content is currently using 27.7MB of disk space...

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

So the main problem is that in firefox mode avant opens page slowly? Yes. By broadband download is 1184 kbps. So, you notice when something isnt right. Could you try whether it's the same in firefox 13? It's not the same. Firefox (proper) flies when loading the pages and the cached web content incr...

Re: Firefox engine clears cache on exit

The first giveaway was that pages were very slow to load (slow broadband here so loading 5 meg a page is noticeable). Then I started looking at why. It was loading each page every time totally each time I exited Avant. I checked firefox options>advanced>network and the cached web content was going b...

Firefox engine clears cache on exit

I have build 173 of ultimate. Win 7 x64. I first noticed that the firefox engine was really sluggish and pages were taking ages to load and far slower than Firefox itself did. Looking into it more, I found that everything was being loaded on a page and it was that which was causing the delay. It app...

Re: Entire website turns blurry, both text and graphics

Just to let you know that I have the same problem and that turning off FXAA antialiasing also worked for me. Problem only occurs on ie rendering mode (but not actually in ie itself) and not the other rendering modes

Win 7 x64. Nvidia Geforce 580 usng 301.42 drivers
