Problem Viewing PDF files

In the last several updates at least I have had a problem with PDF files. Whenever I close a page that has a PDF file loaded, it will cause the browser to freeze, and I will have to force the browser to shut down in and restart it in order to use it again. This happens with any PDF file I open using...

Re: Avant 2010 Builds 1,2, 3, 6, and 7 all extremely slow

Even with the latest version I have had trouble with groups loading. In fact, usually only about half, say four of eight, will load and then I will have to close the blank pages where they failed to load and open them individually. Kind of defeats the purpose of the open groups function. It also sti...

White Space at Top of Web Page

I am using the latest version (2010.128) on a Windows 7 Professional 64 bit system, and it keeps placing a white space at the top of web pages just below where the toolbars are. Usually it is only about an inch, but sometimes it takes up half the page. It actually pushed the web page down so that I ...

Re: Many problems with Avant 2010 Build 2

I tried switching the new tab to open to a blank page, as you suggested, in the latest version (2010 Build 8). It didn't work for me. I still had the same issues when trying to open groups.

Re: Many problems with Avant 2010 Build 2

I have tried Avant 2010 Builds 1,2, 3, 6, and 7 all are extremely slow. They all take forever to load groups. They are all much slower than 11.7 Build 46, to which I have reverted. So Apparently he still hasn't gotten any of the latest versions to run as efficiently as the older ones. But not only t...

Avant 2010 Builds 1,2, 3, 6, and 7 all extremely slow

I first began to talk about this in this thread: http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=27906 I am posting it here in a separate thread because I haven't seen it talked about. Not only do individual pages often load more slowly than older versions, but any of my groups open extremely slow...

Re: Many problems with Avant 2010 Build 2

I tried both 2010 build 2 and 2010 build 3 and found that it was very slow in opening many pages. It woul take forever to a open any saved groups, sometimes 3-5 minutes (for a group of about 5-8 pages.) Does anyone know of 2010 build 6 fixed this issue? I reverted back to 11.7.46 for the time being ...

I am running it on XP SP3 and am having all kinds of trouble as well. I can hardly use it without it constantly hanging.

Re: Google search keeps reverting to Dutch!

Thanks! That did the trick. I apparently didn't have the whole search string in there. But when I copied and pasted in the longer one you gave me, it solved the problem.

Thanks again.

Google search keeps reverting to Dutch!

As the thread title indicates, I have a problem with my Google search page always reverting to Dutch as the default language. I login to my Google account and change the preference back to English, but after my browser cookies are cleaned even one time, the default language returns to Dutch. And thi...

Re: zone alarm for vista

I tried ZoneAlarm after they released there Vista compatible update, and I was very disappointed. It slowed my system down and brought my web surfing to a crawl.

Needless to say, I got rid of it right away.

I have found that, after the page goes white, hitting the refresh button will bring it up with no problems. It just means temporarily having to go to some sights, let them load and fade to white, and then refresh them. So far this has worked for me.

It seems to me that one thing that has kept a number of people from using Avant is that it is based on the IE engine and many see this as lacking in security (although I am not one of them). I appreciate that Anderson is trying to offer this crowd an alternative as well. It seems to me that Anderson...

I guess these are the bugs you expect with a brand new, alpha release. I am glad we can help make it better by trying it out and reporting here. I look forward to the finished product.

Keep up the great work, Anderson!

It started running really slow! And it is buggy!

It was gone after a couple of hours.
