Re: Avant freeze

mathman, you might want to consider a memory-management utility like CleanMem (http://www.pcwintech.com/about-cleanmem). I've used it for several years now, and it does a good job of releasing memory that programs are no longer using, etc., which helps to maintain stability and prevent the kinds of ...

Re: Avant Browser keeps asking to save auto fill

I'm using AB Ultimate 2013 build 108 (which I believe is the latest build - OS Win7 Pro x64) and am very happy with it. There are however a couple of nagging things about the product that I can't seem to get fixed on my own. 1) When starting the browser it continues to ask me if I want to make it t...

Re: How do I turn on text labels on buttons?

Also, what happened to the firefox downloader? I click download, save, then it disappears. I had to go hunting for it. It gave me no indication when it was done or anything. There are some serious focus bugs in all of the 2013 builds. Quite frequently, windows and dialog boxes show up for only a fr...

I use Autofill while I am testing a development underDreamweaver amongst others. As I move from version to version I need tto change the URL to point to the latest version. I find I cannot alter the URL - it won't let me edit it and then save the new copy. How do I do it? All I am interested in is ...

Re: Download Videos

Not that I know of. The only other browsers I have are IE and Seamonkey. What about download managers like Free YouTube Downloader, Internet Download Manager, GetRight, Download Accelerator Plus, Wise Video Downloader, etc.? There's a big list of these at http://download.cnet.com/windows/download-m...

Re: avant stops working

For what it's worth, Norton Internet Security quarantined freebl3.dll again when I extracted the 109 USB files. I had to have Norton restore the file and exclude it from detection. I hadn't tried to run Avant before I restored the file, so I don't know if it would have caused this exact problem, but...

Re: 109 won't restore window vertical size from previous ses

What I do is take a window from another program, put it in front of Avant, and drag the borders until the other window is the same size as the Avant window. Then I start Sizer and use it to get the size of the other program's window.

Re: Affichage des Extensions Chrome

*shrugs* Fair enough. I haven't really used Firefox rendering mode that much really, so I'll take your word for it. They did say this request had been 'recorded' a while back, so hopefully it will one day get implemented. Since I don't use the Chrome engine, I can't say for sure whether the same ex...

Re: Affichage des Extensions Chrome

Uh, that doesn't stop addon buttons showing up in Firefox rendering mode... What I mean by that is that if they can do it for one, they can/should do it for the others? With the Firefox engine in Avant, add-on buttons appear only in the Add-on Bar and in toolbars added in the Firefox Customize Tool...

109 won't restore window vertical size from previous session

(@ xiaobing: This is with Sizer not running.)

Every time I close build 109 USB with the window set to 1368 x 1206, close Avant, and restart it, it shortens the window height to 1200.

Re: Affichage des Extensions Chrome

Avant can use any of the three rendering engines to display the contents of any page. To make this possible, Avant has its own user interface that is completely separate from the user interface provided in the full versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox. Extensions created for a particul...

Re: Where have all the Favicons gone...?

Like the 100+ builds of Avant 2013, Windows 8 is designed primarily for tablet computers and is a very poor fit for desktop and notebook computers. You'd probably be best off in the long run if you remove Windows 8 from that computer and install Windows 7 instead.

Re: Adblock Plus Letting Ads By

That stinks. Adblock Plus should state that on their site. They should also stop saying it's free, since accepting payment to allow certain ads through makes it adware (advertising-supported software), not freeware.
