Avant abandoned???

There seems to be no additional development/bug fixes going on with Avant, except for the last few engine updates. Has Avant development stopped for good? Is it basically an abandoned project?

Re: BIZZARE PROBLEMS with build Ultimate 12.

There are and have been a number of window glitches in Avant for many versions now. I'm sure this is getting worse with new updates, as it appears the underlying problems have never been properly fixed/solved. I constantly see content window layering problems, re/sizing issues, etc. Most are cleared...

Build 12 and Facebook newsfeed loading

Not that I'm a big fan of Facebook, but I do keep in touch with people there. Anyway, I've found that with Build 12 I'm seeing the Facebook newsfeed stall after it loads a couple screens of items. I've gone back to Build 10 and no problems. Anyone else seeing this?

Re: Avant 2017 build 12 still says build 10

Good to know about the asetup file version, but it still does not install build 12. It is build 10.

Avant 2017 build 12 still says build 10

I know others are having issues with build 12, but I can't even get build 12. When I download the Ultimate version which says it is build 12 and install it, Avant still reports it is build 10 and continues to prompt for updates. The asetup.exe reports version 12, though, file version 12.5.0.0.

Some sites' SSL certificates "cannot be verified"

I recently added a Comodo SSL certificate to a customer's web site and when checking it with Avant Ultimate 2017 builds 3 and 5 (any engine), the address bar shows the certificate error: "The security certificate presented by this website cannot be verified." Why? The site works fine in regular Chro...

Re: Avant Window Problems

It appears you are right, hornakapopolis. Even after several updates, these windows issues are still present and continue to be a pain. I can go for weeks without an issue, and then one day I'll start up Avant and the window issue is back - for no apparent reason. It really is too bad that Avant has...

Re: Avant Window Problems

Of course, as soon as I resize or move the control window, the browser content window snaps back, but then I have to drag everything over to the second screen on the left - where I prefer it.

Re: Avant Window Problems

I move the Avant window from time to time. Most of the time it opens on the 2nd screen, which is my primary screen for the desktop. When I move it to the first screen and close it, thereafter Avant always opens the control window on the first screen, and the actual browser content window on the seco...

Avant Window Problems

I'm running Ult 2016 b5 and having issues with Avant windows. I have a two-monitor system running Windows 7 x64. I use an older skin (Crystal) because I like having a real menu system. My issues: - Avant window does not remember where it was closed - always opens in a fixed location that is offset o...

Avant 2015b7 Using Chrome and Firefox, I'm having issues with audio playback on many sites using Shockwave (Flash) audio. Specifically, Chrome (44) is using the pepperflash plugin, and I've followed the advice in another thread here about deleting and reinstalling that. I've also deleted and reinsta...

Re: Autofill "Save Forms" is not saving form data

Even after flushing my (large) profile, it is not working. However, they still work in Chrome (not the Chrome engine in Avant). I suppose this is more secure, but a pain when you have many, many sites you manage. Could it be that now that more sites are using javascript for login forms, Avant's Auto...

Autofill "Save Forms" is not saving form data

I've noticed this for a while now, running Avant Ultimate 2015 build 10. When I attempt to manually use the Autofill/Save Forms menu item, the actual form fields and their content are not saved. If I use the pop-up save forms, they seem to save ok. Any troubleshooting tips? My default engine is Fire...

Autofill delay

I'd like to see the ability to slow down the autofill typing rate. Several sites I now frequent detect whether the typing rate - the rate at which the fields are filled in, moved to, and Enter is pressed or the Submit button is pressed - and if this rate it too fast, they error out. This is one way ...

Add "detach Tab" to mouse gestures and mouse buttons

May I suggest you add "Detach Tab" to mouse gesture options as well as the mouse button options? I know it would be handy to just click or swipe to detach or reattach a tab quickly. Thanks.

Tired of having to reset my profile after every update

I've been using Avant for years and years. Lately I have had to reset my profile after every update. Things like the main window size not being saved when exiting, search engine choices being reset, skins being changed back to default, buttons being removed, etc. Why is this? Can't the update have c...
