Orca Ad Blocker question

Just installed it, like it so far, but I was wondering why all of the blocked ads come up with a message with "Orca can't establish a connection to the server at www.xxxxxx" Avant doesn't do that, I just get a blank window. Is that a configuration setting or something? It's not the end of the world,...

Re: Javascript popup problem

It's definitely a flash problem. I can't even load this site in AB: http://www.dimarzio.com/site/

Works fine in IE8.

EDIT: It's the ad blocker. I disabled it a few times before and it never worked, but now it works...strange.

I guess it was OHS....operator head space. #-o

Yeah, I've restarted the application as well as the computer several times and I have all the records cleared on each exit of AB.

Re: Javascript popup problem

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I wanted to make sure that I went through the steps properly. No dice, avant.exe was never renamed and it's in it's default location. I am pretty sure that the mode switcher is working because it repaired the GMail issue with the buttons I was having. I did the...

Re: Javascript popup problem

Thanks for the tips. I got it working in IE8, but even with the compatability tool it's still coming up with no pictures.

I tried it holding the shift button while clicking IE8+. I also tried IE7 mode.

Strange.

Javascript popup problem

http://used.guitarcenter.com/usedGear/index.cfm If you click on a picture it's supposed to open a little window with a larger picture of the item. It only opens up the window and never shows the picture. It also does this in IE8.0 so it's probably not an AB problem, but I'm kind of stuck. It does wo...

Re: Find that does not work

Make sure that the window you are searching has focus. There is a known bug that was reported because a new window doesn't automatically become active even though you see it in the foreground. Best way to make it active is to switch to another tab and then come back to the one you want to search. If...

Re: Flash/Files Fail

I got the same problem with trying to watch videos on yahoo sports...turns out it's the ad blocker. Not really sure if this is helpful, but it's caused me some headaches for quite some time.

Re: national geographic

Just tried everyone of these fixes with v45, still got the gmail button alignment issue. And my user agent string was fine before even though it was pretty long. It's considerably shorter now though nothing seems to be wrong other than gmail which was borked up before anyway. Mozilla/4.0 (compatible...

Re: Avant freezes or non responsive on most webpages since 46

Using WinXP SP3 and having the same issue with the first page not being responsive and high CPU usage at times to the point that it freezes. This is build 46.

I'm going to roll back to 45 which was really solid for me.

Re: More search engines like in IE and FF

Actually this is a great idea and one that I never thought to ask for. I don't use the default search text box providers and have changed them (directories is changed to driving directions) for example, but it would be sweet if we could add our own search parameters and description for the dropdown....

Re: [Button] Imagefit

Here's an example although it's not that extreme in this case.

Basically the image fit would ideally fit the image so that the text didn't go off the screen. Perhaps I am just expecting too much.

Re: [Button] Imagefit

Is there anyway to make this so that it resizes pictures on forums so that the scrollbar on the bottom is gone? I ask because a lot of times a picture may be wider than the frame that it is in even though it is smaller than the client window size.

Re: Avant switch between IE7 and IE8 Final

Stupid question...is there really any advantage to having a page rendered in IE8 mode? I'm not the type of person that goes all over the internet to begin with so I don't see any real differences in the simple sites that I frequent, but I do know that IE8 mode with Google mail screws up the layout o...

Re: KEEP OF FAVORITE ICONS

Sorry, I just use the favorites setting in AB so I don't have the bookmarks (which I never understood what the difference was).
