Re: Bookmark woes -- how can I delete all and get from Firefox?

Hey, abfan123,

That worked like a charm. Now I'm just doing some reorganizing, but the bookmarks I wanted from Firefox came in just fine. Thanks.

Bookmark woes -- how can I delete all and get from Firefox?

Hi. I've used Avant over the years, but not for the last two years or so. Consequently, all the bookmarks/favorites I have since I installed the current 11.6 build 13 are a mess. Here's what I'd like to do: 1. Delete all my current Avant bookmarks/favorites. 2. Import my current bookmarks from Firef...

I think you can solve your problem by right-clicking on the toolbar and selecting "Customize Buttons" from the drop-down.

After selecting "Customize Buttons," go to the "Ohter Buttons" tab. Those selections, I think, are what you're looking for.

Is it just the text you want bigger? The options under View > Text size should lock in place. Set it to large, see if that helps. I don't want to take this thread "off-topic," but your comment here relates exactly to a problem I'm having. Perhaps someone can help? I have had problems with Avant in ...

Cache size?

Hi, I've been searching on the word "cache" and not getting a lot. I've been searching on "cache size" and getting mostly occurances of the word "size." :lol: So -- having demonstrated I'm not much of a search guru, I thought I'd just come right out and ask: What's the ideal/optimum size for the cac...

So I went backwards with Avant. I just uninstalled 10 build 33 and reinstalled 9.02 build 101su (107su? I forget?) -- and wow, the speed has returned. I use Avant on a Toshiba Satellite laptop, running 512M memory, Windows XP Home edition, SP2. For whatever reason, with that configuration and my SBC...

Wow. OK, so it's not just me?? I've found builds 30, 31 and 33 seem to be progressively slower. I even went back to version 9.02 build 107su for awhile. Might try that again. **big sigh** Gary Speer BTW -- Firefox 1.0 actually seems noticeably faster than Avant 10 build 33. Hate to say that; hate to...

Hmm... strange, Gary. :( A guess would be that you have ActiveX or Javascript disabled on your browser. Also, don't look for the circle to have a dot in it on the FWD/POP enable page. Right next to the "1." you'll see where is says in very small print "POP enabled". Also, you have to use secure POP...

Title of this thread caught my eye -- because version 10 build 30 is NOT the fastest browser for me anymore?? :shock:

Has anyone else noticed a slowdown in Avant's loading time and page rendering time, or is it just me?

OK, OK. Found the solution on my own. :D I was looking for the "Avant Options" location to change the Interface Language. But it's under "Tools" in the Menu bar, which I guess makes more sense! Got the problem solved the sort-of-hard-way, though. I went into the avant.ini file with Avant closed, fou...

HELP! I don't even KNOW French???

I have no idea what happened, but I suddenly find myself with the French interface in Avant. I don't speak French or read French -- heck I'm not even sure it IS French, but it looks like French stuff I've seen. :lol: I didn't even have Avant open. I was reading email with Mozilla Mail in the latest ...

Oh, and for some reason, I don't think FireFox will be back. I think he just wanted to post about how good Firefox is. I could be wrong, but that's the impression I get. I suspect you're right.
