Why continue with Avant with IE8?

Is there a reason to continue with Avant with IE8 now out? I became an Avant user back with IE6 in 04. Now, after touring IE8, I'm wondering if there is a reason to continue managing 2 browsers anymore? -The issue of disabling flash is taken care of with new add-on switches -Highlighting search term...

Re: Avant + Google Notebook?

Man, this is an old issue-- I see that GN is a toolbar option-- yet, when you press the icon, nothing happens. Is this working ? What steps to activate ? Thx

Re: accessing the online Storage

Well, if you can't access the data from any other computer, I don't see the point in the online storage. I already use a synching application to sync PC with LT. How do I delete my online storage account?

Re: Mouse Skipping?

Unbelievable-- After scanning my system several times, thinking it was a worm/virus, I went out & bought a brand new mouse- thinking the optics must be bad! Didn't realize this was specific to Avant until I started testing other browsers, etc. So, yes, the filekickr link fixed this-- & I now have a ...

Avant 11.7.18 Loads very slow

I've been upgrading Avant for a few years now. What is going on now ? With this last upgrade, Avant takes a full 20 seconds to open to my home page. I've already gone into IE and deleted temp files and cookies. Have already run Win Disc Cleanup & CCleaner. Ran Ad-Aware a couple of weeks ago. Thanks ...

Re: Bad URL won't clear out- Avant persists on opening it-

This problem is SOLVED !! Please see Horn's response above- By going into Avant Profiles, and then deleting the reopen.dat file, I have complete and 100% restore of all functioning ! Man, that was the EXACT key for the lock- I knew nothing about these dat files. However, I am setting my exit for dir...

Re: Bad URL won't clear out- Avant persists on opening it-

I appreciate the suggestion (I couldn't get that URL to work, and I have little confidence Logitech would be responsive about this): After many hours of pouring over settings and thinking about this, the only thing I can think is that some kind of loop got set up around my exit setting: "Automatical...

Re: Bad URL won't clear out- Avant persists on opening it-

I have tried the 2 further items from my #2 post, with no results. Another symptom is that desktop shortcuts don't work anymore. 1. All cookies related to the Logitech site are removed- no resolution from that, so I'm not looking at a cookie problem. 2. I turned off the automatic page save on exit- ...

Re: Bad URL won't clear out- Avant persists on opening it-

Really appreciate the reply- I took a break. Yes, Horn, I see what you mean: When I start Avant on a brand new session, my homepage starts automatically, and it is the first page/tab to open. Now, the stuck URL is opening first (tab#1), and my homepage follows (tab#2). In subsequent sessions, the ho...

Bad URL won't clear out- Avant persists on opening it-

Every once in a while I am unable to use Avant because some URL gets Avant's focus in the address field, and simply won't clear out no matter what I do. My home page builds up behind it when I try to start new sessions. This time it is: %1 http://www.logitech.com/quickcam Late last night I installed...

Re: Make system buttons movable

Please add my vote to moving system buttons back to top right. Also, Big C had a link to an "add on" work around for closing tabs, top right. Please advise the non-techy on how to activate this work around. Thx.

Re: cant get mpg or mov files to work in browser

No one replied to this thread from August- November 2006--this is 7 months later. Why no solution ? Users still unable to play .mov files in Avant ? I have to open IE7 to play them. Is a fix available ?

Middle button won't close tabs anymore

I've just noticed that the middle mouse button won't close the tabs anymore. Don't know why and can't find any related posts. Under Avant Browser Options > Mouse > Clicking tab button with middle mouse button > set to "Close the Window."

All that is set up right--. Thanks in advance for solution

Combining Windows Tab and Status toolbars

I'm in AV 10.1 22. I have seen other threads about "hiding" tool bars to increase viewable screen area. At bottom of screen, I really use both Windows tab and Status toolbars-- but, is it possible to combine them on one toolbar ? They each don't generate much horizontal data. And, I'd like to get th...
