Re: Avant freeze

On the bottom of monitor settings it says "pro features unlocked for 6 more days." What features is it referring to? What happens after? There is no clear comparison of the features of the free and pro versions on the website. There is something in the pro version that I wanted (I don't remember wh...

Re: Changing from using Opera to using Avant

Thanks, Mike. At least now I know I will need to transfer everything else manually. Avant doesn’t give an option to turn the tool tips off either, eh? Is this some sort of browser fetish? Oh well, at least the tabs are over the address bar and out of the way so the tips aren’t so much of a nuisance...

Re: Changing from using Opera to using Avant

I've never used Opera, but I can answer some of your questions: If Opera's mail client is a standalone application, you can continue using it. Go to Tools > Avant Browser Options > Email Client, click the Other Program radio button, and type in the path to the Opera email client (or click Browse), a...

Re: Chrome extension updates

This procedure should prevent your Chrome extensions from auto updating: 1. Close Avant. 2. Locate your Preferences file, which is in a folder a few levels below your Avant Profiles folder. For example, mine is in E:\Avant Profiles\[name of my profile]\webkit\Default\Preferences. 3. Open the Prefere...

Re: Avant freeze

The description appears to be useful. However I cant get to first base. How do I get the mini monitor window? When I installed it no shortcuts were created. I had to go to the start menu, where I started the process. The good news is that it is doing the job it is supposed to. Even after an AVG swe...

Re: Why does Avant "prefer" the Chrome rendering engine?

Since I've decided to use build 23 until there is either an acceptable new build of Avant or I am forced to abandon Avant altogether, I have been downloading and experimenting with the USB versions of each of the 100+ builds as they are released. The USB versions don't get "installed." You simply un...

Re: Toolbars in different position

Better yet ... could Anderson PLEASE sell the pre-2013 versions of Avant Browser to somebody who really cares about providing a browser which users actually WANT? Then Anderson could continue to tinker with his undesirable AB 2013 build 100+ to his heart's delight and the rest of us could maybe act...

Re: Why does Avant "prefer" the Chrome rendering engine?

I think Anderson didn't even thought or done much research about what to write for those labels, and mbrazil you are right, we should be prompted on startup or install which engine we want as default. He probably put chrome because its the fastest and didn't think about anything else. Obviously, no...

Re: Avant freeze

I just installed it (it was on SnapFiles list and well recommended by users). I am confused about how it supposed to work. I seem to have started it and it seems to be going. It would be useful if there was some description of how it is supposed to be used. Try this: http://www.pcwintech.com/cleanm...

Re: Location buttons

 
These are the links to build 23, which has the old-style buttons and works fairly well:

absetup13_00_Build_23-Lite.exe
bsetup13_00_Build_23-USB.exe
absetup13_00_Build_23-Ultimate.exe

All of the older versions are available at

Avant Browser Old Versions.

Re: Font and fit-to-width

If you're using the Firefox engine in Avant, you can control the fonts in Tools > Firefox > Options > Content. You can also make a lot of font settings in about:config. If you're not familiar with using about:config, just type about:config in the Address Bar and press Enter. To see all the settings ...

Re: Please bring back the customizations of the toolbars

I have to chime in here. When it comes to the things that were taken out of Avant starting with build 100, and the many severe bugs that were added starting with the first 2013 build, you CANNOT just consider restoring and fixing these things! These repairs are NOT OPTIONAL! These aren't suggestions...

Why does Avant "prefer" the Chrome rendering engine?

The only way I could prevent Avant from occasionally using what it calls "the Chrome engine" to open a site was to rename the webkit folder so that Avant can't find it (the Firefox/Gecko engine is my default). Also, every time a new build of Avant USB is set up, Avant starts up with Chrome selected ...

Since build 108 I've noticed some strange behavior with downloads and GetRight. Lot of times if I click on a download link, like a .exe file and even .pdf's. AvantBrowser will open it in a new page with all the machine code displayed and won't let GetRight (or my .pdf reader, PdfXchangeViewer) catc...

Re: Download Videos

Sounds like no one has a good answer. As an aside... Avant has been hanging up a lot lately. I need to exit it entirely and then reopen it for it to work! The next time this happens, try minimizing it to the tray icon (if necessary, set this up at Tools > Avant Browser Options > Tray Icon) and then...
