A sidebar on the right-hand side of the screen is undesirable and unpopular and it is has made Avant undesirable ...

Rendering Engine updates

What sort of difficulty is involved in updating just AB's rendering engines?

Would it be feasible to put the latest FF & Chrome rendering engines in a 2013 build of AB?

Sidebar Bookmark URL Problem

Because the sidebar is on the wrong side of the screen in Avant Browser, in a 2 monitor setup where the main monitor is on the left, the URLs of the bookmarks in the sidebar extend onto the second screen when you hover the cursor over a bookmark. This is very irritating when you use the monitor on t...

Site doesn't display correctly using firefox engine

I've been using AB 2012 b197 for a long time. I had to do a clean install due to videos not playing on some sites. Now, however, I'm finding that the website http://www.hotukdeals.com doesn't load correctly in any 2012 or 2013 versions of AB using the firefox rendering engine. The only change made t...

Re: no videos

Same issue in AB 2013 b23 using the firefox rendering engine. The above solution did not work for me. I have disabled the built-in adblocker and disabled and removed adblock plus from the firefox addons. I've also cleared the blocked ad list.

Window Media Player 12 Stuttering whilst browsing

Whenever I play a video in Windows Media Player 12 and try browsing the web in AB Ultimate 2012 b197, the audio and video stutters whenever avant is loading pages. Changing the rendering engine makes no difference. There is no stuttering if I use a different web browser whilst the video is playing. ...

Re: Download Video

Upgrading to 2013 107, downloading a video utilising Avant Downloader then reinstalling 2012 197 seems to have worked.

I really don't like the design of AB 2013 which is why I'm sticking with AB 2012 b197.

Re: Download Video

Sorry for the delay - couldn't reply for obvious reasons. I'm using AB 2012 197 and I'm unwilling to switch to a later version. Unfortunately selecting Avant Downloader only works once and then it switches back to Orbit. I've tried uninstalling orbit, but as soon as I reinstall it, it is listed as t...

Download Video

Is there any way to have Avant Downloader as the default technology to utilize when you click the 'Download Video(s) button?
Avant Downloader and Orbit appear in the list and it always defaults to orbit.

URL Issue

In AB 2012 b192, as soon as I add a letter anywhere in the url, the cursor moves to the end of the address before I can add any more letters.

This happens with all of the rendering engines.

Re: RoboForm toolbar fails to load in some tabs

To be more specific to the issue I posted above - If I left-click a link and it opens in a new tab, the roboform (7.8.0.5) toolbar isn't there but if I right-click the link and open it in a new tab, the toolbar appears as normal. I'd still like it to be fixed rather than having to work around the pr...

Re: RoboForm toolbar fails to load in some tabs

I'm having the same problem with build 187 and the Firefox Rendering Engine. If I click a link that opens a web page in a new tab, the new tab will not display the roboform toolbar - I have to open the current page in a new tab to get the toolbar to display... very frustrating.

Re: Do new versions of AB trigger a kill switch?

AB started freezing/crashing last night, it happened again a few minutes ago... low and behold there is a new version available.

I leave AB in the Firefox rendering engine.

Do new versions of AB trigger a kill switch?

When a new version of Avant Browser is released, the previous release starts hanging & crashing on my pc. I was wondering whether it was forceful encouragement to upgrade to the new version?
