Re: Improve Video Playback

Well, it was just a suggestion. Actually, it's not a startup manager except in a very limited sense. The only things it can do regarding program starting are to automatically kill a process that you want to prevent from running, automatically kill a process except on certain days, automatically kill...

Re: Improve Video Playback

I use Chameleon Task Manager, which I have running all the time (it's set to start with Windows). One of its features is the ability to detect hung processes and notify you about them with a message in the corner of your screen. It has other notifications you can use if you want to, and they can all...

Re: Error Message

Check the setting for Email Client in Tools > Avant Browser Options > Email Client. Make sure the path to your email program is correct. If it isn't, click Browse to navigate to your email client, select it, click Open, and then click OK. That should eliminate the error message, as long as your emai...

Re: Why does Avant update itself when not told to?

Do you have both 'Notify me when there is a new version available' and 'Automatically install hotfixes' unchecked in Tools > Avant Browser Options > Miscellaneous? Also, if you're using Online Storage, you should have backups of your Bookmarks, AutoFills, and Configuration that you can restore from ...

Making Avant 2013 look and work (kind of) like it used to

If you've used Avant previously, and you just installed or updated to Avant 2013, you may be surprised to see the new Avant user interface, and you may want to get back to the "classic" Avant user interface. While there are some things you can do to restore some of the features, functions, and appea...

Re: no compact mode

Thanks for updating your profile. :thumbup: Regarding Compact Style, I think the default right after install should be for Compact Style to be off, and the same thing goes for Avant opening full-screen. Having it start up the first time in a window in standard (not compact) mode would be much more u...

Oops. :oops: My bad. I've got to make myself remember that not everyone uses the Firefox engine as much as I do. It's been so long since I did much with IE that I forgot all about the Favorites Bar.

Add an autosave capability for text entered in a web page

Avant crashes, and especialy rendering-engine crashes, happen frequently enough that it's not unusual to lose work when a crash occurs. Sometimes, it's just a few words in a form, but it can also be a lot of information in a fairly large form or a large quantity of text when you're composing a post ...

Re: firefox rendering extension - Magic actions for youtube

You may be right. Avant may be doing something that somehow interferes with Gecko's ability to enable that particular extension, but you've left a couple of things out of your equation: 1. Avant doesn't manage Firefox extensions. Gecko does. All Avant does when you choose one of the options under Fi...

Re: Installer locks up laptop

Have you tried deleting and then re-downloading the installer in case it got corrupted? Also, try disabling or uninstalling as much as possible of the software that came on the laptop. You could also try the installer for the Lite version, just to see if it does the same thing. One other suggestion:...
