Re: Avant Browser future plans/2011 roadmap

Right now, Avant is the buggiest and most annoying browser I've ever used. The best thing you could do would be to put new-feature development on temporary hold and concentrate on bug fixes. Identify the bugs that are in segments of code that you don't anticipate changing anytime soon, and get those...

Re: Switching tabs causes desktop refresh and misc. question

1. Yes, Avant is in a sizable window (restored), not full screen. 2. No. The cursor blink rate is normal, but during the intervals when the cursor is visible (blinked on), it flickers rapidly. 3. Closing all tabs does not reduce the number of ybrowser.exe instances to 1. Closing some tabs eliminates...

Re: Switching tabs causes desktop refresh and misc. question

I went back to Orca. Avant had so many bugs and some of them were so annoying that I just couldn't take it.

Switching tabs causes desktop refresh and misc. questions

Ok, I just switched back to Avant from Orca since Anderson has resumed develpment of Avant. I've noticed a few annoying things in Avant 2010 Build 128 as compared to Orca. 1. Whenever I switch from one open tab to another, the desktop refreshes (all icons disappear and then reappear). This also happ...

Re: Orca prompts to save logins with 'Prompt to save logins'

Sorry, let me try to clarify. It's not just immediately after a crash. Even after a normal session and a normal shutdown, in the next and subsequent sessions, Orca will put up its save login dialog when I log into a site even though "Prompt to save logins" is unchecked in Options. I can't get it to ...

Orca prompts to save logins with 'Prompt to save logins' off

I use RoboForm, so I don't want Orca to save my logins, and I've got 'Prompt to save logins' unchecked in Options. This appears to have no effect, since Orca keeps prompting me to save logins. I have to click on 'Never for this site' (that's from memory, so the exact wording may be different) each t...

Site icons lost and not updated

Frequently after Orca has crashed, the favicons previously shown in the Bookmarks list and the Bookmarks Bar are gone and replaced with the generic globe icon. After the latest crash earlier this evening, not only were the favicons lost, but they're apparently not being detected or not being display...

"Background" tabs don't finish loading until selected

Since Orca crashes quite frequently (three or four times a day), I frequently find myself reopening pages in a number of tabs (10 or 12) at the same time. When this occurs, some of the pages load completely, but others only load partially. One that never loads completely until I select its tab is Pa...

Re: Orca freez and crash (very often)

I've been having somewhat frequent Orca crashes on Win XP SP3 for quite some time -- three or four a day. It either just terminates spontaneously or the UI remains visible, but there is no response to keyboard or mouse. I've seen it happen with no extensions installed at all. I reported it once befo...

Re: Roboform toolbar not to be moved ? (again)

Currently, for different and various reasons, both Avant and Orca are more trouble than they're worth! I hope Anderson can do something fairly quickly before everyone gets disgusted and finds something else. I know I'm reaching the limits of my patience
and tolerance.

Checking View->Toolbars->Management Bar to make it appear. Yeah, I figured that out. I'd forgotten that those buttons could only be added to the Management Bar. I should probably post a feature request to make it possible to put any button anywhere you want in any of the toolbars. Overall, the tool...

As a quick test, can you check if the error disappears when:
- The second monitor is disabled
- Both monitors are set to the same resolution

Ok, I tried both. The problem remains the same regardless.

When can we expect a bug-fix update version?

I recently switched back to Avant from Orca for several reasons, and I can't believe how many bugs there are in the current version of Avant. Most of the ones I've found are already discussed in other posts. The current version of Avant is almost unusable due to there being so many bugs and signific...

Does your system have multiple monitors/desktops enabled? (Check in: Control Panel >> Display >> Settings) Hi Kudos. Yes, I have two monitors. The second one is set up as an extension of the first. Monitor 1 is a 28-inch I-Inc iH282 at 1920 x 1200, and monitor 2 is a 19-inch Samsung 191T at 1280 x ...

I deleted the entire folder. I'm really getting pretty fed up with this. Today, it crashed for no apparent reason, and when I restarted it, all my settings and extensions were gone -- AGAIN!
