Re: Orca browser showing in System Tray with Avant icon

Well, browserfan_123 and Xiaobing, I followed your suggestion(s): Deleted the Orca 1.2 build 6 copy in my machine and replaced it with a freshly downloaded copy. Then re-installed the ten pages I had open in that browser. And yes, The Orca browser is now showing correctly with its own icon both at t...

Re: Orca browser showing in System Tray with Avant icon

No, I have not.

Is there anything that makes you think that doing so might help, or solve that problem?

Re: Orca browser showing in System Tray with Avant icon

It happened after I installed Orca. Avant had been running for years on my machine, one version after the other - just as they were being released. Orca was installed only last year - or early this year. Right from when first installed, Orca has been displaying the Avant icon both in the System Tray...

Re: Orca browser showing in System Tray with Avant icon

Clicking both buttons brings up different browsers? Yes, Both are Avant ('A') icons of which one says Orca browser while the other says Avant browser when I hover the mouse over them - and they open the browser they each pertain to. Do they show the same icon in the application tab of your windows t...

Orca browser showing in System Tray with Avant icon

I have and use both Avant Ultimate 2012 build 8 and Orca 1.2 build 6 browsers. Often, both browsers are active at the same time. At those times, it is confusing that _both_ browsers are showing in the System Tray with the very same Avant icon, instead of Orca showing with its own, distinctive Orca i...

Re: Avant 2012 build 8 not going "live" - not conn. to Inter

Am not aware of any Firewall I would be running. Have paused Avast! Antivirus (10 minute option). Found Rendering Engine set to Mozilla Firefox - changed it to IE compatible. Cannot at all understand how this makes the difference that it does but apparently, it _does_ make a difference, and a big on...

Re: Avant 2012 build 8 not going "live" - not conn. to Inter

Looks like I got happy just a mite too soon. While indeed, Avant 11.7, Avant 30 and Avant ver 2010 build 131 are working fine again, the new >Avant 2012 build 8< just "sits there", no matter what address I tell it to go to - whether by pressing the green button to the right of where the address is s...

Oh my! Am I stupid, or what? Thanks for making me "see the light."

Here goes for another try now. Hopefully more successful this time.

Avant 2012 build 8 not going "live" - not conn. to Internet

I had been using Avant 11.7 without any problems but was prompted by Avant to upgrade to new version. So, I downloaded Avant 2012 build 8 and it appears to open normally. But then, my screen remains blank and http://www.avant.com/ does not "open up". Instead, an IE text appears, headed by "Action ca...

Re: Rendering engine

I might try that. Nothing to indicate that it would solve the IE problem the current version caused but then again, neither anything to show that things would get worse. I currently work with Firefox ver. 5. Delayed upgrading to ver. 6 because Firefox advised of an existing problem with one of the c...

Re: Rendering engine

I think I now know why I cannot find that option on my copy of Avant. Several months ago, there was a message from Mozilla Firefox that they were updating to a new Java Plug-In for their Netscape (?) engine. From that moment on, whenever I want to open IE, it telle me "The new Java Plug-in requires ...

Rendering engine

I am currently using Avant ver 2011 build 30. Wanted to find out whether this was set to IE7 or IE8 as the Rendering Engine but can no longer find Tools --> Rendering Engine --> IEX?.

Where has that info and/or setting option been moved to?

Aaah, this strange, narrow ikon like a dash with two upside-down letters "v" underneath it. Great!

I have just upgraded to Avant 2010 from Avant 11.7. I am running Windows 2000, Version 5.0 (Build 2195 Service Pack 4), Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80 GHz. I usually have to have quite a few windows open in the browser and, if more than maybe 10 of them, under version 11.7 their tabs would show in not one...

I have recently upgraded to Avant 11.7 build 26 and am being faced by that pesky dialog box that, every time I now open the browser, wants me to tell which of the saved pages I want to have re-opened: One click needed at top of box, the next at its bottom - and heaven forbid I forget even one of th...

Re: Bookmark problems not experienced before

Thanks for your guidance. Basically, what happened when I did what that TechTip suggested, is exactly what I was trying to achieve. The "downside of success", however, appears to be that those bookmarks - both individual and folders - that were entered on Avant ver 11.x during the 2½ months since u...
