Pesky IE & MSN Favorites Keep Coming Back

I keep deleting the dozen or so IE and MSN favorites that appear to be default bookmarks in MSIE 8, but they keep reinstalling themselves! I removed the MSN toolbar application and it didn't help. Unfortunately, Avant (41) imports them automatically. I have NO boxes checked under IE add-ons in Tools...

Re: Why has Avant Browser gotten SLOW??

I'm having regular freeze-ups, too, and have to close with task manager. Bummer. But in Avant's defense, I get the same thing with Safari on my Mac!!!!!!! Might have something to do with my lousy AT&T DSL connection. But the main problem is I can't access MSIE8. Although I've reinstalled it direct f...

Re: "avant browser did not shutdown properly last time"

I got this same error message upon launching Build 39 every time, too--but only on my Toshiba Satellite (old laptop)! Not occurring on the later model Dell I'm using presently at work. Just saw the new release and hope Jasmine is correct that the problem's been fixed.

1. I like to play with fonts and colors.

OK--I assumed the BrotherSoft site was an official version. :wtf:

I'll get the one you suggested and replace it.

Does one need to have IE and/or Firefox?

For Avant and Orca to work properly, is it necessary to have MSIE or Firefox installed? It's not clear to me if Avant & Orca borrow resources from them, or if they're just designed in similar ways. I had to dump IE8 (beta) because it was buggy. :roll: Sorry if this duplicates previous posts--I searc...

BrotherSoft download froze at very end

Went to orcabrowser.com to try it out, and it downloaded fully, then the download window froze with 1 second remaining. Had to cancel and search for the .exe file but to no avail. Not a good first encounter!

Re: Avant Build 39 won't close properly

Well I'll try that later, but...had to force quit my PC tonight because Avant was NOT RESPONDING! It wouldn't close using task manager and wouldn't even let me log off normally from the START button. I mean, it was totally frozen. So I had to use the power button. BTW, using the down arrow has exite...

I've had the same thing happen with Avant. One second you're looking at a site, the next...it's closed up without warning!

Re: Avant Build 39 won't close properly

I haven't had anything else running in the background. However, I did discover after posting that if I select FILE--EXIT, it closes as it should. Previously I was using the down arrow or X.

When I reopen Avant, it tells me it did not properly exit the last session, and provides a list of the last active windows. I'm on a Toshiba Satellite running Windows XP and did NOT have this...
