Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

Hi! Here's an update, but it's not very precise. First, my avant works normal again! Since the last time I rebooted, I did a number of things which is why I'm not sure which is responsible for the fix. Most likely cause: 1) I downloaded Advanced System Optimizer , which is a registry fix program, an...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

I already noted that when a picture is still loading and you place a mouse cursor over the pic, you get the toolbar. After that, there's nothing. Considering that the toolbar shows up on other user accounts on this computer, and doesn't on mine, in safeboot mode or else, I tried figuring out what wa...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

Hi josephrot and thanks for the reply! Many users or others that may use their PC's may likely have run one or more "improves your settings in XP/Vista or Windows in general" tools that alter system settings or display potentials.... we seen that more often than not on the 40-42 (so far) systems tha...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

But why does Avant recognize jpgs if they're opened from a local address (eg c://windows/picture.jpg) and doesn't recognize the same picture when it's opened from an internet address (eg. http://imageshack.com/picture.jpg)? That imageshack jpg above gives me a toolbar if I drag and drop the picture ...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

No suggestions? Here's another weird thing. If in the current account I do a diagnostic startup (boots basic service only) or even safe mode reboot , the problem still remains. Now isn't that weird? In every other account (guest and administrator) the toolbar works. And, again, it doesn't matter wha...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

Another piece of the puzzle is this: I can get a toolbar to appear for any jpg on my computer that I open in avant. So if the image address is something like c:\\desktop\picture.jpg and I have it open in a tab then I can get a toolbar to appear for it as normal. Is there any computer genius here who...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

This is a bit sad and frustrating. I tried both suggestions and both are ineffective. Renaming the configuration file set my Avant to fresh default settings, and the problem is still there. I renamed avant.exe to iexplore.exe but still nothing. Sadly, I can't do a system restore either since I misse...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

Hi hornakapopolis. I've tried right clicking while holding various combinations of buttons, the left ctrl, the right ctrl, etc.. It's still ineffective. The image toolbar is one of those features about Avant that I love and so this is not something I can ignore. Any other suggestions? I'll tell you ...

Re: image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

Hi! Here's the problem: Absolutely NO .jpg files work with the toolbar; it doesn't matter what page they're on, what their url is. The toolbar simply does not pop up for them, whereas it pops up for .gif files wherever they are. To give you an example page: http://img365.imageshack.us/img365/9453/pe...

image toolbar doesn't recognize jpgs

UPDATE: Fixed. Go to my second post on page 2 to read about details. Hi! Long story short, against my "if it ain't broke don't fix it" rule, I updated to the new 11+ avant (I was previously using 10.1 xx version). Anyway, since then I noticed the floating image toolbar doesn't pop up for jpg images....

Re: Fullscreen Desktop viewing tabsbar a problem.. 10.2 buil

^ Yes, that appears to be the case. I have my tabs bar situated beneath the status bar, at the very bottom. I wasn't accurate with my op. The problem with the new row ONLY occurs when I open new tabs with the middle-mouse button. Also, I have it set that new windows opened with middlemouse open bene...

Fullscreen Desktop viewing tabsbar a problem.. 10.2 build 51

In Fullscreen mode or Full screen Desktop mode, whenever I middle-mouse button click open or open any new window which is supposed to show up in the tabs bar (which I have situated at the botton of the screen), that tab doesn't show up in the tabs bar below unless I roll over the mouse twice. This p...

hi again. i'm sorry but i've been giving out the wrong information. turns out manually minimizing (ie hovering mouse cursor over minimize button and clicking) minimizes avant w/o that bar. i, on other hand, have been using the mouse gestures program StrokeIt! oddly enough, when i use it to minimize ...

when minimizing that bar at the lower left corner...

when using avant, the program minimizes to a little bar that by default is located at the lower left corner of the screen. i'm using windows. any way to get rid of this? i'd like to mimize/maximize w/o having to deal with it.

thanks! avant is still my favorite browser.

I have just tried clicking onto "have ie browser check if default" - and it didn't work.

I've also reset the web setting - and it didn't work.

So if, say, I go into START-> FAVORITES and click onto a link there, Avant opens up rather than IE.

Any other suggetions? :oops:

Thanks!

RESOLVED-How do I make Internet Explorer my default browser?

I'm trying to make IE my default browser and not Avant.

How may I do this?

Thanks!
