Re: Unstable, unstable unstable!

ok closed (disabled) all addons. I'm still having some issues with high CPU usage. It went down a bit but without using any auto refresh avant uses anywhere between 15 and 50% of CPU at all times, average probably around 30%. Same on my home PC, latest versions have had some issues, to the point tha...

both toolbars are disabled but Avant is still having serious issues. Runs fine for a while then CPU usage climbs to 20% to 80% at all times (average around 50%). I am trying to refresh only 2 windows at a time (auto refresh every 15min). I have a few other TCP connections opened (Outlook, SQL db run...

Re: Unstable, unstable unstable!

Done, both toolbars are disabled... Thinking of it I've seen the problem worsened after installing the Netcraft toolbar and enabling it in Avant. That was last week, around the same time I installed build 43. Before that I did have problems with Avant running high CPU usage and crashing just like wh...

Re: Unstable, unstable unstable!

ok i have just installed build43 last week and so far things are getting worse! I'm not sure what is going on but the browser seems to be more and more unstable. Now if I have more than 2 tabs refreshing at once and i'm working on another tab the browser will completely crap out. I'm talking about 8...

Unstable, unstable unstable!

Well, this issue has been going on for a while, pretty much ever since upgrading to IE7. The issue is apparently replicated on other machines with similar setup (different hardware) so I'm guessing it's not just me. Anyways, with more than 10 or so tabs open the browser becomes total crap. It works ...

Floating windows

Not sure how much sense that makes but I figured it would be nice to be able to have floating windows so you can move the tabbed window out of the Avant browser main window. I'm asking that cause I have a dual monitor setup and sometimes it would be nice to be able to drag a particular tab on the se...

Ok still haven't tested IE but I noticed that if you open a link from the start up menu it will first open Avant with your default page. Once Avant is opened and running, you can click on the start menu and favorites will open just fine.

Yup same here... I'm a beta tester and have been using SP2 for a few weeks now on two systems (Tablet PC and XP Pro) and Avant is showing the same symptoms on both machines. The favorites won't open from the start menu... it only opens up a blank about page (default page for me). I've gotta see if t...

SweetLou; Thanks Lord that was it. I actually looked up right in there a couple of weeks back and wasn't surprised by the "Confirm after download" not being checked... In any case I did look this up online but couldn't find anything! I'm so glad someone knew what I was talking about. Anyways, thanks...

I already double checked WinAce settings and there is nothing like this so I'm wondering what could have happened for the zip files to automatically save.

Avant Browser automatically downloading zip

I've been having a minor problem for the past couple of weeks. I'm not sure if it's due to Avant (I actually don't think it is but I thought I would ask here). Basically, everytime I want to dowload a zip file the zip is automatically downloaded on my machine (without a prompt) to the temp directory...

Ok guys... I downloaded and installed Ace Utilities and after running different clean up tasks the problem disappeared. BTW, it looks like a pretty cool utility.

Anyways, thanks again for the help.
Cheers,

Also as a note IE doesn't show those links. Very weird. Anyways.. i guess i'll have to live with it, just wanted to let the dev aware of this ...

Guys, I've looked around everywhere but couldn't find anything that worked for me. One thing that I forgot to mention is that when I open IE and checked the history or start typing an address in the address bar nothing popsup. Only Avant seems to be doing this and I can't seem to get those addresses...

Yup cleared all that. I also think I cleared the password and forms though this shouldn't have anything to do in the Autocomplete. I disabled the web address auto complete restarted the browser and checked but no luck.

Not sure what else I could do.

Thanks,
Sam
