Re: Hotmail & Firefox engine

Build 171 seems to have a problem with Microsoft Silverlight - the framework engine that powers Hotmail.

Re: Multiple installations facebook issue

You are correct, I have just tested it and it does use the same profile, it can be checked in about:cache

I have just done some preliminary tests on an OrcaXtra replacement and it works here. If I am able to test it successfully on some systems other than XP then I shall release it.

I guess that the closest is to manually click: Help >> Check for New Version
But that just gives you a notification and takes you to the download page.

Re: Multiple installations facebook issue

Are you sure that each instance is using a different profile (ie portable mode)? If so, then try to set the Mozilla cache location for each Avant instance to a different location (the way that OrcaXtra automatically did so). The setting can be found at: about:config >> browser.cache.disk.parent_dire...

Re: Mozilla FireFox Connection Settings (still) not saved.

Try the FoxyProxy extension. It works very well with Avant when in the Firefox rendering mode. It also adds an icon to the addons bar to quickly switch between proxies. There are other extensions that do a similar job too.

If you check the avant.exe executable, you will see that it is the same for all releases. The application checks for the Gecko/Webkit folder and its appropriate contents. Depending on the result, Avant will then enable the relevant features for the engine. Therefore, you can happily delete the Gecko...
