outdated browser

I tried to pay a bill on-line. The credit card site refused my login - it said the browser was outdated and I could be exposed to security risks. I am using build 12 with IE11 as rendering engine. I then used another browser and had no problem paying the bill.

spell check

In the past I was able to spell check anything I typed. That feature seems to have disappeared. How do I get it back?

Re: BIZZARE PROBLEMS with build Ultimate 12.

From all the descriptions I've seen, it looks like a problem with the way FF was installed in build 12.

browser failure

Very frequently, Avant stops working and I get a message from Windows 10 to that effect. I can close the Avant and immediately reopen it and it will work. This should be easy to fix.

Re: BIZZARE PROBLEMS with build Ultimate 12.

Firefox latest is 57.0.2, while Avant is using 57.0.0. Hopefully next update will solve problem.

Re: BIZZARE PROBLEMS with build 12.

See my bug report - many report that Firefox and build 12 don't work together. I am now using IE11 with build 12.

Re: avant ultimate 2017 build 12

I tried it with IE 11. It appears to work properly, most of the time.

Re: avant ultimate 2017 build 12

Above comment is for windows 10. For windows 7 some web sites will load, but not Avant forum, etc. In both windows I went back to build 10. Avant forum response is much slower than anything else in build 10..

2017 build 10

I updated (ultimate version) and it wouldn't load anything. I used another browser to get access to Avant install, (not ultimate). This works ok, but I don't have access to other search engines.

wierd bug - verizon on-line

I pay my verizon bill online. When I use avant with firefox rendering engine I run into a problem trying to pay via bank account. When I used firefox directly, there was no problem. The specific issue was in selecting the type of account, in avant, it refused to select (checking or savings). No prob...

disappearing bookmarks

Every once in while my bookmarks disappear. I have them saved so I can get them back. Why does this happen?

Re: html files

Just to be clear. The computer that I had, using Windows 10, broke down. I now have another computer for Windows 10. The fact that I am having problems with Avant using Windows 10 does not appear to be a hardware problem!

html files

In windows 10 with Avant as the default opener, the file is opened an indefinite amount of times, when Firefox rendering is used. To stop it I had to change rendering engine.
In order to open it properly I had to change the default opener to IE 11.

In windows 7 I did not have such a problem.

You have to click 3 times i think: ok ---> apply --> ok

and don't forget to check/mark that google search engine after adding it.
I tried it, but it still doesn't work.

Search engine (Avant browser options)

I would like to add google to the search engine list and make it my default. I can go through the motions of doing it, but when I look at the list after closing Avant browser options, and reopening, the google option is gone. How can I make it stay?
