Re: IE7 Pro

Yes they are sort of "mutually exclusive", either you put Avant on top of IE _OR_ you put IE7Pro; of course the former has a whole new shell, while the latter is "only" a BHO. Their feature set is much similar, so I don't see why you would use IE7Pro with Avant... either you prefer Avant or the stan...

Re: Title position in Tabs of 11.7 is lowser than 11.6

As I said in my post, it might well be some modification in one of the last betas that started it (or even some new default behavior of the development tool used by Anderson, without any modification to the Avant source code). I've been seeing problems with changing DPI since it was first possible (...

Re: Title position in Tabs of 11.7 is lowser than 11.6

By any chance, did you change your screen resolution (DPI)? This looks like one of the usual problems occurring when the screen DPI are changed from the standard setting of 96. If you look closer, you'll note that it's not really the title that's lower, but the button that's bigger in height, with A...

Re: In Browser Note-Pad

May I suggest a quick and easy (and better) alternative? place a shortcut on your desktop (or in your quick-launch bar if you run your browser full-screen) pointing to notepad.exe (or whatever text editor you're using) and you're done. You could also create an Avant add-on button launching notepad, ...

Re: Change Password to Avant Forae

Slightly OT :wink:

the plural of forum is either forums, considering it an English word, or fora if you wish to keep its original Latin form. "forae" would be the plural of "fora" but unfortunately that word does not exist in Latin. :D

Re: favicons ... not all displayed,why?

Jasmine , IE7 displays the favicon in the address bar and page tab, though it doesn't display it IN the page as it should, like it does, for example, with http://www.libero.it/favicon.ico ; Avant 11.7 beta 3 correctly displays the latter both in the address bar and in the tab but doesn't display at...

Re: Page Load Stalling

Apparently not enough... but I was thinking about the known issue of Zone Alarm had with the DNS patch on XP, preventing internet access, but then again it blocked ALL access, so if IE works for him it cannot be the same issue.

Re: Page Load Stalling

Gee, it would be so nice to get some information on your problem... :wink:

Can you connect with IE?
Can you connect to other pages with Avant?
Can you connect with other applications that access the net, for example your email client?
Are you running Zone Alarm by chance?

Nice... I never noticed it, though actually Avant's tabbed browsing was exactly one of the main reasons for me to start using it :wink:

Re: disabling tabs

Where's the problem in having tabs? maybe there's an easier solution than not having them... It's quite difficult, as far as I know all major browser currently use tabs and cannot be configured not to use them, and reverting to old versions is not even remotely conceivable, due to security problems,...

Re: Default browser

I was partly wrong, actually they were somehow reset to IE, though the files were associated with a third app, neither IE nor Avant. The settings in Avant were kept as before, i.e. all the checkboxes are cleared.

Re: AD-blocker blocks my logo

Look in the blocking list for the default "names" and name your images differently: for example your logo is called "banner" which is exactly one of the default blocked names. Rename it to "logo", for example, or "croadlangshan" or whatever does not appear in the list and it won't be blocked.

And neither the tabs bar, for that matter :-( Only once did the tabs bar share its line with something, and now even this is not anymore, since the request of being able to move the bar has been "satisfied" with the feature of being able to move it anywhere EXCEPT for the tabs bar. What a pity...

Re: Avant 11.6 build 8 Skin Selection not retained

It's a beta and, as usual, skins are disabled in the beta - i.e. only the default skin works. This time, though, on a change from previous betas, Avant seems to retain the skin from the previous version, even if it's a custom one and even if it doesn't appear in the list; if you try to change it, wh...
