Re: avant ultimate 2017 build 12

I installed Build 12 last night and immediately could not open any web sites using the Firefox engine; both IE11 and Chrome engines worked fine. Site would "appear" to load with the site name appearing in the tab once the progress "bar" (background color in the URL field) completed but the actual wi...

Re: Problem opening PDF files with AB Ultimate

When I checked, it was set to "Save File"; I verified by checking my Download folder and it was full of all the files I was trying to view. I have changed it to "Preview in Firefox" and will test once I can close AB and re-open. 2:20pm follow-up: Much better; PDF's are now previewing in AB as they u...

Problem opening PDF files with AB Ultimate

I don't know if this belongs in Bug Reports or if it's something I'm missing in AB but here goes. I've always been able to open PDF files on any website with no difficulty. Recently, somewhere between Ultimate 2015 Build 10 and Build 27, I lost the ability to open PDF files and it doesn't seem to ma...

Re: Lost floating toolbar for pictures with upgrade

OK, well, that would explain why it happened to all three of my PC's/laptop. Was it intentional? If not, will it get fixed in the next build? It's kind of an inconvenience to have a simple upgrade change personal settings but as long as I know where to go to fix it, I guess I can put up with it for ...

Re: Lost floating toolbar for pictures with upgrade

Thank you xiaobing, I feel foolish! I knew the option was available but I didn't know it was in the Tools dropdown menu and I certainly don't know how it got checked! I tried using the ctrl key option years ago but didn't like it so I just have it set to pop up automatically. I really don't know how...

Lost floating toolbar for pictures with upgrade

After resolving the problem with my status bar moving to the top of the window, I upgraded to Ultimate 2015 build 6. This seems to have caused a new problem. The new problem is I've lost the floating toolbar for pictures and it seems I've also lost the floating toolbar for text. In Avant Browser Opt...

Re: Looking for help with the status bar

Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. Replacing the 3 conf files in the new folder with the same 3 files from my old folder put the status bar back at the top of the window and did nothing to get my URL Aliases back. Luckily, I had a couple of backups of my profile, one of those was done ...

Re: Looking for help with the status bar

Thank you xiaobing, that worked! :clap: :clap: Now, is there any way to import my Avant Browser Options settings and URL aliases without importing that odd status bar setting? I can probably reset the browser options from memory but I would be hard pressed to remember all of my URL aliases. Thank yo...

Re: Looking for help with the status bar

No, I've never felt the need to lock the toolbars and I've never had any issues leaving them unlocked. Somehow, I don't think it would've made any difference in this situation. Unfortunately, none of your suggestions worked. I tried several different skins and nothing would allow me to move the stat...

As requested.....you can see the status bar under the tab bar, identified by the "100%" on the right side indicating the zoom setting for the window.

Re: Looking for help with the status bar

Microsoft office probably added some bar. Do you see any "strange" bar under View--> Toolbars? Or look in your add-on's for something strange. Here's a screenshot of Avant Browser Options, Add-ons. I don't see anything out of the ordinary. Also, in View, I don't have a Toolbars choice, rather, I ha...

Re: Looking for help with the status bar

Did you install any application or extension before the problem appear? Not that I can recall. This is a laptop that gets used just for browsing the web, playing games and checking email. There's not usually a whole lot of software being installed other than updates for the OS and antivirus softwar...

Looking for help with the status bar

A couple of versions back (I'm currently on Ultimate Ver 2015 build 5), my status bar, which normally sits at the bottom of the Avant window, moved to the top of the Avant window as the bottom bar of the three bars, below the tab bar. How does that happen and does anyone know how to get it back to t...

Re: Middle mouse, new tab setting ignored

Have you tried my suggestion? Yes, I just tried it and it solved this problem but it's an annoying way to fix it. If this problem occurs repeatedly, it's going to get real annoying every time I have to do this. At least I figured out how to save and import my URL aliases but it will get tedious goi...

Re: about:blank tabs and focus issues

Understood, Mike. Thank you Tinman; it appears what I'm experiencing is what you described. I use it at work so when I don't need it, I close it. Occasionally, I forget I need to look up something and close it and immediately remember that I was going to look up one more thing and re-open it. That's...

ALT + TAB shows 2 Avant-icons, in Build 21 and earlier there was only 1 icon I am also seeing two Avant icons when using ALT+TAB to switch between windows but I'm getting it on 2 machines both running Win7 SP-1.

Re: about:blank tabs and focus issues

I have noticed the same thing happening with all of my PCs/laptops that I'm using Avant on (1 laptop and 1 PC, both running Win7 SP1). What I've noticed is it seems to happen mostly when I've had the browser open with additional tabs open (I have 2 home pages set to open when I open Avant), close th...

Re: Avant Browser Option are Reset with New Build Releases

Sammysampat, I've never had the problem you describe. In the FAQ section of the AB website, there is a question about the need to uninstall the previous copy of AB before upgrading. The answer given is to uninstall, reboot the PC, then install the new version. I've always done this and have never ha...

Problem with the floating picture toolbar

I'm not sure if this is just a problem I'm having or if it belongs in the bug report section. I've been using AB for 4-5 yrs now and haven't had any problems that I couldn't solve on my own but I'm not a power user so it's not like I push AB to its limits. I like AB for the simplicity, ease of use a...
