Mute ads

I thought it might be nice to have a built-in ad muter (for the sort of flash ads or other that play sound without any possibility of shutting it down, short of using the operating system sound controls). Maybe with some sort of single page/all pages distinction (i.e. adding more specific handling)....

Re: help menu shortcuts

well it's just that for a long time (several versions) I've checked first via the help menu version check and then by visiting the page, and it's always been the latter approach that actually informed me of new versions... maybe I've just been "lucky", but it kinda seemed like the help menu option h...

help menu shortcuts

I'm sure this must be known, but... in my help menu, the "check for new version" option doesn't work as intended. the result is always "you are using the latest version of orca browser" - I always have to check for updates manually. it's been this way for a long time (although as far as I understand...

Re: Keyboard shortcut

doesn't do anything here either.

alt+s and alt+d also went away (which was the only way of making up for the loss of tab for highlighting adress/search easily)

Re: Mouse gesture: Close

No, I've not encountered this issue. Do all other gestures work correctly? well, everything works, it's just that sometimes the closing issue comes up. Have you tried changing the gesture? no, but seeing how it only happens once in a while with some pages, it doesn't seem a problem with the gesture...

Mouse gesture: Close

Sometimes, when there are multiple tabs open, and the mouse gesture for close is performed, nothing happens - yet, when you close the current page manually, or just select another page, the close-gesture comes into effect, closing whatever page is selected. It seems the closing is somehow queued, wa...

(can't come up with a decent title, sorry.) anyways... anyone else experience this? sometimes, not very often, the pointer will suddenly shift rapidly between the arrow and the "link-hand", and I'm unable to activate anything in orca anymore. mouse gestures don't work, buttons don't work, it's impos...

there must be some kind of overwriting being done here, as e.g. the home page stated in these firefox options does not correspond to what that orca will use (I'm not using one, i.e. about:blank) - ?

Re: Search toolbar problem: rd.avantbrowser.com unreachable

I've wondered about this issue. It seems every time you use the search bar feature, which should really just conduct a google (or whatever) search and nothing else (I figure), rd.avantbrowser.com is contacted. Sometimes there is a slight delay, which is where you notice it the most. I don't get why ...

"white pages"

I seem to recall seeing someone mentioning this, but I can't find it again. Every once in a while, orca will open "white pages" - that is, when you try to open a page, or a set of pages, the pages aren't loaded and instead you're faced with an empty, white page. It's not that the loading has stalled...

I was just wondering... Why isn't there an option to decide where to place the "Orca Profiles" folder that per default winds up in local settings under my user?
