Re: Large number of bugs in 2010 Build 122

scubamaster, your implied criticism in your reply to kelleyu is quite unjustified. kelleyu is one of many who are making an extremely useful and helpful point, more useful than the plethora of faults, bugs, annoyances, mistakes and just plain old fashioned screw-ups that have accompanied the ill fat...

Re: Garbled Display - AB 2010 122 9-15-10

I found this too with Build 122, on this site, but it was not consistent and I cannot find the trigger that causes it:

Re: Window redrawing

I have just tried Build 121. With relatively modest dragging of the Avant window using the mouse, the main window now lags behind the rest of Avant by perhaps a little less than half a second, whereas the Roboform toolbar lags behind by at least half a second. If I drag the Avant window and move it ...

Re: Window redrawing

The fault where the main window lags behind the rest of Avant Browser is reported as fixed in Build 120 but it is not fixed.

Re: Window redrawing

Many thanks, I shall look forward to it. Despite my best efforts, I have had to downgrade my version of Avant, the first time I have ever had to do this.

Re: Window redrawing

Hello, is anybody there? Does anybody care? Build 117 showed a noticeable deterioiration in this window redrawing problem, but Build 118 takes it to new depths, rendering Avant 118 unusable. If I drag the Avant window, the Roboform toolbar lags behind and snaps into position after about half a secon...

Re: Window redrawing

Deterioration with Build 117. The screen redrawing is now slower than it was before. Dragging the window around really shows up the flaws, with the main window lagging way behind the rest and the Roboform toolbar struggling to catch up. The several other related issues reported - but not so far ackn...

Re: Window redrawing

These problems have persisted throughout the last dozen or so builds. Surely it is time for them to be addressed? A further sympton of the condition is that when Avant is first opened, it does not have the focus! If other windows are open, Avant will open behind them. If no other window is in the wa...

Re: Window redrawing

Follow up to initial post, apologies for missing this off: With two monitors you can use Win+arrow to move the Avant window and with Shift+Win+arrow you can move it to the other monitor. (I guess that with one monitor you can use Win+arrow to move the Avant window from left to centre to right and so...

Window redrawing

Windows 7 Aero: after closing the last open tab, the Avant window loses its transparency; the title bar becomes a solid colour. I notice other occasions when the title bar is changed to a solid colour but I cannot pin down the causes yet. Regaining focus on the Avant window restores the transparency...

Re: Compact Style causes display corruption

I don't think I understand the question. In my last reply I said my computer brand was a MESH and the model was Elite E6600 Express. What other information will help?

I can add something that might help clear up a misunderstanding: whenever I get another build of Avant, I install it and then reboot and open Avant, to be sure of getting a c...

Re: Avant opens unwanted menu on web site

Thanks for the solution. I had Avant installed with the default setting which was IE7 Compatibility mode. After your reply I changed that to IE8 Standards mode and the site displays correctly. I do notice quite a lag in display however. The site used as an example opens with that menu driopped down ...

Avant opens unwanted menu on web site

If I go to any of the sites that allow a download of a Thunderbird add-on, Avant will cause the first menu option, Categories, to drop down and I cannot close it. If I open the same site in IE8 that does not happen and the menu works properly. In IE8 there is a little arrow next the menu, to the lef...

Certainly the black main screen looks like the problem I am having from time to time. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.

Unable to get focus when main window is blank

Build 110 - With any other program I use, clicking on any part of the program's window gets the focus. In Avant, if I have a blank main window i.e. no page is loaded, clicking on the main window does not gain the focus. I need to click on the window frame, the status bar or a toolbar. This in itself...

Crash leaves ybrowser running

Build 110 - this has locked up a couple of times, leaving the main window black and the whole program "not responding". After closing Avant, my Roboform toolbar was still visible. The only way I could get rid of it was to use Task Manager to end the process ybrowser that was still running even thoug...
