Orca crashes, hangs, or partially hangs quite often (XP SP3)

I switched to Orca from Avant several months ago, primarily because my ISP, WildBlue satellite, made some kind of arrangement with Mozilla that is supposed to improve browser speed over satellite. Orca doesn't seem much, if any, faster than Avant, but I wanted to stick with it because of some of the...

Re: How can I disable searching from the address bar?

I use OpenDNS shortcuts from Orca (and other browsers) successfully without having to change any browser options. What exactly is the problem that you are experiencing? Have you tried from other browsers too? It could be a (DNS) cache or (router) connectivity issue. Thanks, kudos. According to Open...

How can I disable searching from the address bar?

I'm trying to use OpenDNS shortcuts, but it won't work in Orca unless I can disable the "Search from the address bar" option. I can't seem to find anything in the Orca options to do this.

Re: Record settings changes in Avant and Orca right away

Actually, Avant does save changes to the disk at once and have changes synced to the Online Storage Server in 15 seconds. FYI, How does synchronization work? . The reason for the loss is complicated. A solution we decide is to add a backup funtion for your easy backup. Thanks, Jasmine. Anything you...

Re: Lost bookmarks and settings after power outage

Hello there guys save all your data you do not lose onto a blank cd. Then if you lose anything you will have it saved.PS update the cd as you need to. I do this myself really helps if you have to format. :) Quite true, AXEMAN, but we wouldn't have to do this if Orca (and Avant) did a better job of ...

This happens a lot more often than it should. Something should be reworked to prevent file damage like this.

Re: What good is "Show AutoFill Under Bookmarks"?

The option mainly deals with the Bookmarks menu - it adds an Autofill entry there. And if viewing the Bookmarks Toolbar then Autofill will appear there too. Some users like bookmarks and autofills together so enabling that option and disabling the Autofill menu (View >> Customise Buttons >> Menu Ba...

Re: Orca (and Avant) lose MANY settings after incomplete shutdow

Have you the tray icon enabled? Please check whether disabling this changes any behaviour. I do have the tray icon enabled. However, since this problem doesn't occur frequently, there's no way I could test to see if that makes any difference. Something could cause an incomplete Orca shutdown that r...

Enable AutoFills in Bookmarks

In Browser Options under Auto-Complete, there is an option called "Show AutoFill Under Bookmarks." Enabling and disabling this option appears to have no effect on the Bookmarks Bar other than a brief off-and-on flash of its contents. It does add AutoFill to the Bookmarks menu in the menu bar, but th...

Record settings changes in Avant and Orca right away

Instead of updating configuration files only during shutdown of Avant and Orca, record the changes to disk as soon as they are implemented. This would prevent loss of changes if the browser fails to shut down properly or if something else happens that causes the browser to be terminated rather than ...

Re: Avant loses MANY user settings if shutdown is incomplete

As I mentioned in my post, I rarely get a BSOD, and I've seen this happen a number of times with Avant when there was no BSOD and some other problem within Avant caused the settings to be lost. I see no value in recording settings only when the app is closing. It would make a lot more sense to recor...

Re: Does anybody know of a way to prevent Avant from being paged

There is no way to do this as it's a operating system feature. Is there a reason you would want this? The only thing that I could see coming from this is possible instability. Whenever I come back to the computer when it's been idle for awhile (an hour or two usually), Orca and/or Avant is initiall...

This is somewhat off topic, but does anybody know of a way to prevent Avant, or any other individual program for that matter, from being paged out to virtual memory in Windows XP and Win7? I don't want to disable virtual memory altogether -- just prevent certain programs from being paged out of RAM....

I finally got the standard RoboForm toolbar to show up in Orca -- the one RoboForm itself creates within each tab window. However, I'd prefer to be able to activate the RoboForm toolbar as a movable toolbar that could use space on the same line as another Orca toolbar, like you can in Avant. If I en...

Re: Error on automatic adding: TypeError, firefoxnav is null

Please ignore this thread. I uninstalled a few extensions that I'd recently tried, and the problem went away. I'm not sure which one caused it, but at least it's fixed.
