Re: 107 Stopped Working Suddenly?

To me AvantBrowser is a very interesting browser in the sense that user interface has the best ever made, for built-in options. However it is a never ending story for mysterious bugs. So I gave up using it and as a result, I have no problems any more with Avant Browser. If you like the challenge you...

Re: AB Invader, Despot, or Tyrant ?

No change occurred when updating to latest version of Ultimate. The following situation has remained stable ever since the actions were made as described above : THE GOOD PART : - In Outlook 2013 , each internet link launches the standard browser Firefox. - If FF is already open, the clicked link wi...

AB Invader, Despot, or Tyrant ?

I changed my standard browser a time ago to be Firefox. But AB does not agree at all !! AB continues to control all my links to the web . Whatever I tried so far, AB still takes any clicked link to any webpage ... as it's personal mandatory duty. I will stick to most annoying cases : - Url links in ...

Re: Settings for 2 WinXP accounts ?

Never mind. Best Solution : I uninstalled AB and (probably) won't use it in the future.Stability was never the best feature. I always had a preference for the intelligent user interface of AB. However there were always some problems. Each "new version" is actually a new "beta" ... to be tested. By t...

Settings for 2 WinXP accounts ?

I have administrator rights on my wife's PC. On her PC I use I use AB_Ultimate once in a while on my user account AND very occasionally on her user account. Her user_account has no adminstrator rights; so any program is always installed/removed using my user account. I want to prevent by any means t...

Re: LastPass ICON not visible in FF Rendering mode

Mike, Either it does not work exactly the way you explain it, either I'm overlooking something. Anyway I don't find the typical LastPass 'asteric' icon. However I, clicked (at add-on manager) on the LastPass Options . That opens a window "LastPass Control Panel". Under Appearance : The option Use C...

LastPass ICON not visible in FF Rendering mode

Build 192 I wonder why using Firefox rendering mode, I can't see the LastPass icon. LastPass is not disabled. Apparently it is working. For example when surfing to this forum, I get a message asking if I want to automatically login for this webpage. Still , the usual icon does not appear on top righ...

Re: Webpages open in reduced size windows

Tried some time but cannot reproduce it. Do you think alternate use of f11/12 and View>full screen/desktop option maybe the cause? It 'feels' like that, because 1. An older problem (now apparenrly cleared) was associated with the use of those same buttons, namely the fact that the whole bottom tool...

Re: Webpages open in reduced size windows

It has rreally nothing to do with inadvertently making some change at the dropdownmenu (arrow).
Today again this occured just after being through a few times using F11 or F12 and going through View Menu (bottom functions) using full Screen/Full Desktop.

Re: Rendering Firefox shows no toolbar Roboform Lite ?

Thank you for the extended explanations and the efforts made to explain things which obviously are never easy with Roboform. The latest link for the 'special edition' adapted for Avant Browser might be interesting. BUT ... I'm affraid that again it might be an installer similar to the one that I pre...

Re: Rendering Firefox shows no toolbar Roboform Lite ?

After a new installation of Roboform (version 6) the situation is as follows : - I managed to make the Add-ons Toolbar to appear at bottom of screen. - It is GREY and empty (besides the X cross at left side and the triangle for sizing the bar at the right). - Right-clicking on this toolbar, the subm...

Re: Rendering Firefox shows no toolbar Roboform Lite ?

Mike, The received link is to install the whole Roboform "latest version" , nothing else. So I ended up with version 7 installed (which was NOT wanted, because I don't have a license for it). I had to un-install it and the reinstall version 6 again. The whole operation didn't improve anything on the...

But was disabled immediately (as it was in Firefox itsel...

Re: Rendering Firefox shows no toolbar Roboform Lite ?

Thank you Mike.
There is some 'toolbar-like' grey area appearing at the bottom of screen.
I guess that it must be the Add-on bar
It contains NOTHING except for a X (close cross) at left side and a triangle to adjust size at the right side.

I will check on my version for possible update.

Re: Rendering Firefox shows no toolbar Roboform Lite ?

Thank you BigC.
The context menu does not contain this option to click on.

I checked again if this add-on is installed
and YES it is shown and not disabled at page (Tools > Mozilla Firefox > Add-ons > Extensions)

I can't manage to make 'Roboform Lite' toolbar visible in the rendering mode Firefox. In menu View > Toolbars , the option Roboform Lite does not appear in the check-list of toolbars (as it does in real Firefox) However within AB rendering mode Firefox, this add-on is installed and enabled .

I confirm that ever since this unwanted layout (which I never used before) was eliminated, there has not be another simi...

Webpages open in reduced size windows

The usual toolbars at the top of screen display at normal size. (Rendering = IE8 standards) But when opening a new website, the bottom part underneath the top toolbars is not filled as usual. All the new pages open in reduced size, (as being zoomed to about 70 procent of the available screen space) ...
