Re: New tab at end of tabs

Also, the search box in the top-right should use Google search, but I see the search going to google.avantbrowser.com (again, it seems, this has occurred before). But this URL doesn't seem to respond, so the search is actually not working. In the past I was able to correct the URL myself, but I can'...

New tab at end of tabs

I've upgraded to Ultimate 2014 build 2, and I notice the tabs now open right from the active tab, but I want them to open at the end of the tabs (to the right). This option was possible in the previous version and could be found under Tools -> Avant Browser Options... -> New Tab, if I'm not mistaken...

Minor: spelling mistake in downloader

The Avant downloader has a spelling mistake when it is downloading a file with unknown size. It status: "Completed file size: Unkown". One missing "n" there. :)

Re: changing the places of the buttons

I would like to go one step further. The current Avant skins have this set of buttons for minimizing, restoring and exiting: aero_glass.PNG Basically all other Windows programs use this: windows_regular.PNG If I want to minimize a set of full screen windows, I just want to click a couple of times on...

Re: [Firefox engine] Specific sites perform very slowly

That would be a work-around, yes. Sadly, also those engines seem to be performing less and less with those sites. I'd like to get a response from someone who can tell if this can be reproduced and will be worked on, because more and more sites seem to be creating this problem for me. This is one of ...

[Firefox engine] Specific sites perform very slowly

The following sites perform very poorly when opened in a tab using the Firefox engine: - www.nu.nl - www.webwereld.nl When these sites are opened, the tab gets very slow in performance. This means scrolling is very difficult (moves in "chunks" instead of fluently), mouse-over on links responds slowl...

Re: How to disable " google custom search " ?

I was unpleasantly surprised by this new "feature" as well. I understand the "http://www.google.com/search?avantb=0&q=%s" solution works. I also understand why it works: it specifically tells the browser to ignore the avantbrowser search engine option (avantb=0), and thus use the Google search engin...

The error repeats every few seconds, and closing it does not help; no website is being displayed.

Downloader: place temp downloaded file in selected folder

Apparently, the temp file which is created whilst downloading is in a different location than the selected location where the file should go (via Browse or Advanced -> Category). Is there a specific reason for that? The problem with this file management behaviour is quite huge if the file is of subs...

Re: Downloader: choose folder based on file extension

Thanks for your reply, Jasmine. The same logic you lay out, applies to the default locations that are available now in the downloader. The only difference is that you can predetermine on file type where it will go, without having to click at all. Even with the default locations you still have to sor...

Downloader: choose folder based on file extension

I like the option of defining default locations for types of files in the downloader, this is very helpful. But I would like to see a feature added that: - lets you check a box to "add extension to this location", so that every time you download a file of that type, it will automatically select that...

Any idea what the status on this is? As I said in another thread, it's been a while since the last update to Orca. And if there is an update, can we expect this issue to be solved?

Google Streetview not working?

I'm using Orca version 1.2 build 6, and since a very short while, Google Streetview seems to be nonfunctional. I think it must be something Google did, since it doesn't work on two completely separate and different computers, and it stopped working around the same time. Symptom: using the yellow man...

Re: URL bar: auto-complete takes a long time

There has been no feedback from the development team yet. Do you really need your history? Clearing it will speed it up. Let me apologize for the sarcasm that's going to follow, but: is that what the feature is for? ;) To clarify: if you just type an address and don't need the history, the speed-pr...

Re: Orca only allows 'save as' for .torrent file type

The OpenDownload extension works perfectly for me in Orca I know, so you said, but it didn't for me.
