Re: Latest upgrade

None of those worked. nI'm using Series 15 Build 27(lite). I've also tried the full version, so I could try under the different engines. Also switched between IE standards and IeE10 Standards. BTW, clicking on the Restore button shrinks the Window I'm in. The only was to restore it is to switch betw...

Re: Latest upgrade

OK.........I seem to have done it again. Something set off the BSOD, which I haven't seen in years (It shrunk) and when I rebooted Avant was back in Compact mode. I can't bring up skins to change to my old one and Compact isn't in "Tools" so I assume this is a new skin. I've right clicked in every b...

Re: Ad-Blockers

Guys, I appreciate all the help. I think I'm going to pass on Windows 10. I've gone back to IE 10 for now, but I will try in again in a day or so with HostsMan and see how it goes. Right now I need it to be usable, as I have work to get done. I'll try to do it this weekend and keep you posted.

Re: Ad-Blockers

Looks good, but will it work in Windows 10? The only reason I'm trying to get IE 11 to work is to decide whether to make the July 29th deadline for a free upgrade. I've been advised by several folks to stick with 10 and 7 until all the bugs are out of 11. :mrgreen:

Re: Web pages say I'm using I.E. 7

No test link, but where do I find out what the sites are set at? I know in ten there was a choice in Avant (under View, I think) for the browser itself that set IE compatability, but it seems to have vanished. OK, I found the setting to change Avant (rt click on the Desktop icon, pick properties and...

Web pages say I'm using I.E. 7

I had this happen occasionally when I was using I.E.' 10, but since I upgraded to 11 in preparation to trying Windows 10 [-o< , it's more frequent. I get a notice saying my Web browser is outdated and to please update. My bank at least had the courtesy to show me that they saw me at Explorer 7. BTW,...

Ad-Blockers

Can anyone recommend a blocker to replace Ad Muncher in Explorer 11? Avant's does a poor job on the sites I use regularly (lots of google, etc. which AdMuncher chomped).

I'll pay!

I can't download this because McAfee says it has an unknown publisher and won't clear it.

double-click refresh

I deleted aa complaint about the new version after I realized that I needed to change the skin back yo get the stuff I needed. Went back to what I was using and had to re-do all of my preferences. One thing I can't find is how we set the tabs to refresh when double clicked. I keep closing them inste...

Re: Can't check out on Amazon from Avant

It's happening again! I had tp use plainIE to complete my order. In addition, once this happens, as long as I have an Amaazon tab open none of the other tabbed sites are functional and at times even the tabs don't work--it stays stuck on Amazon. This is what I get instead of the regular page: http:/...

Re: Latest Avant installation complaint

This is why I don't have anything automatically installed. Downloaded, yes, but I decide when and if I want it installed. With Avant I always wait to see how a new version is behaving for other users. Windows update tried to install Win 10 (which my computer apparently isn't ready for) and did insta...

Re: Home page thinks I'm running IE7

Thank you, something worked. I downloaded and enabled the app and then I couldn't find it--apparently I need Developers Tools? Something I read made me check the rendering engine option and mine was set on IE Compatable and I changd it to IE10 Standards and my user string is now correct. There was a...

Home page thinks I'm running IE7

I use http://www.post-gazette.com/ as my home page and It keep getting a page that says I'm using an unsupported version of IE. According to the address http://my.post-gazette.com/purchase/ie7/ it thinks I'm using IE7. I have no trouble if I use Ie alone, so Avant seems to be sending the wrong info....

Can't check out on Amazon from Avant

Lately I have had to switch to IE to check out purchases on Amazon. I could still use 1-click, but that doesn't work with non-prime purchases.
