Re: firefox rendering extension - Magic actions for youtube

The problem happens with : Avant 2013 build 110 Avant 2013 build 107 Works fine with : Avant 2013 build 23 Looks like the problem is of avant 110 (1xx) version and not of the extension . Build 23 uses Gecko version 19, build 107 uses Gecko 20, build 108 uses Gecko 21, and builds 109 and 110 use Gec...

Re: Favorites Bar

Please clarify your question. What do you mean by 'favorites bar', and what do you mean by 'up up under the url to be shown'? In Avant, the Bookmarks Bar is a horizontal toolbar in the upper area of the window that contains icons for the bookmarks that are in the bookmarks folder that is set as the ...

Re: Power out leading to weird Avant

Reinstalling should fix everything you mentioned, but if your profile was damaged when the power went off, you might lose your bookmarks, bookmark icons, or some configuration settings. If you use online storage, you should be able to get everything, or almost everything, back after you reinstall.

Re: firefox rendering extension - Magic actions for youtube

Obsolete does not mean non-functional. extensions.update.autoUpdateDefault is obsolete only in the sense that it is no longer the setting that Mozilla recommends for enabling or disabling automatic updates to add-ons. They now recommend using extensions.update.enabled instead of extensions.update.au...

Re: XPCOM

I doubt that XP has anything to do with this. I run Avant with the Firefox engine for many hours a day on XP (32-bit), and I've never seen this error or heard of anyone seeing this error only on XP. The Firefox engine actually works much better than either the Chrome or IE engines on 32- bit XP, lar...

Re: Download problems: get server error 500

Which version and build of Avant are you using (your profile just says 'lite')? HTTP error 500 doesn't tell anyone much, as it's very generic -- it's issued when a more specific error message does not exist for the problem. The following is a quote from the page at HTTP Error 500 Internal server err...

Re: firefox rendering extension - Magic actions for youtube

There's another setting in about config that might have something to do with it: extensions.update.autoUpdateDefault. It's my understanding from some research I did awhile back that extensions.update.autoUpdateDefault is obsolete and that extensions.update.enabled overrides it. However, I don't know...

Re: firefox rendering extension - Magic actions for youtube

What is the setting for extensions.update.enabled in about:config? If it's set to true, your extensions (not necessarily all of them) will update automatically.

Re: XPCOM

Do you mean when you try to use the Firefox engine in Avant? There should be an xpcom.dll file in your \Avant\gecko\ folder. Check to see whether it's there. Also, this error is frequently caused by add-ons, especially toolbars. Try temporarily disabling all your add-ons, and if the problem goes awa...

Depending on the brightness and contrast settings, the lilac error page can appear black, especially with certain video cards and monitors. He didn't say whether or not the black pages have the error message text.

If you put it in your Startup folder, it will start automatically every time you start or restart your computer, so you won't have to even think about it.

Re: Again: Please recover the left side favorites bar

Mike uses an app called Sizer . You cannot do it without this app. I tried this app for a while, it caused many windows problems in Avant. Actually, Sizer doesn't directly do anything to make it possible to move the Sidebar. It's not intended for anything like that, and it does not have a similar e...

Re: Input on rendering engines

The most stable version would be Avant 2012 build 197. The problem with using it, though, is that the versions of the engines included in it are getting pretty long in the tooth, and there are no updated engines available that will work with it. The engines in 2012 build 197 also have a lot of secur...
