Error on automatic adding: TypeError, firefoxnav is null

I don't know what caused this to start happening, but every time I open a tab by any method (link in email, link in web page, bookmark, etc.), I get an error dialog that has [JavaScript Application] in the title bar and contains the following text and an OK button: Error on automatic adding: TypeErr...

Re: I need a replacement to substitute for RoboForm in Orca.

Maybe you have the remains of an older toolbar installed. Try this: Close Orca Browser Type this into a command prompt: ren "%appdata%\Orca Profiles\.default\mozdata\UserData\" UserData.bak Start Orca and install the toolbar Restart Orca and go to Tools >> Add-ons >> Extensions and make sure it's v...

Re: I need a replacement to substitute for RoboForm in Orca.

Roboform now works! Using Roboform in Orca When I try to install this: Toolbar v6.9.98: http://www.roboform.com/dist/roboform-firefox-3.0-frozen.xpi (167,628 bytes) Something apparently doesn't work right. After installation and an Orca restart, the dialog box with the Install button just comes bac...

I need a replacement to substitute for RoboForm in Orca.

Since the RoboForm toolbar cannot be made to work correctly in Orca (the toolbar is blank), and since Siber Systems does not intend to support Orca :cry: :thumbdown: , I am looking for a substitute to use in place of RoboForm. I need this to fill online forms as well as to remember usernames and pas...

Re: No menu when right clicking links in web pages

The problem resolved itself. I don't have any idea what caused it or why it spontaneously started working.

No menu when right clicking links in web pages

Using latest versions of Orca and Firefox. In Orca, right clicking any link in any web page does not bring up a context menu.

Re: How to convert bookmarklets to Add-ons?

Try creating a new script button and pasting the code there: - Tools >> Avant Browser Options... >> Add-ons >> Add-ons (Tab) >> Add (button) If you provide an example, someone may convert it and you can see what is done Thanks kudos! I'll give that a try. Here's an example of a bookmarklet I tried ...

How to convert bookmarklets to Add-ons?

I've had trouble with several bookmarklets I've tried to use with Avant. In searching the forums, I've seen references to converting bookmarklets to Avant Add-ons, but I haven't been able to find any information on how to do this. How do you convert a bookmarklet to an Add-on?

Re: avant freeze up and crash

I am having similar random crashes with Ver. 11.7 Build 31. There doesn't seem to be any pattern or series of actions that causes or triggers the crashes. When it goes down, it takes Windows with it (XP Pro SP3 with all subsequent updates). It's a total freeze that requires a hard reset.

Re: An update to my dearest users -- toolbar autohide

It would be nice to have an option to autohide whatever toolbar or menubar is positioned at the top of the window and to autohide the status bar. This would allow for more viewing area for web pages while still having the two bars readily available. I don't think it would make sense to autohide any ...

Re: An update to my dearest users -- bookmark icons

I'd like to have the ability to choose icons for items in the Bookmarks sidebar and in the Bookmarks Bar. This would mean that there'd be an option for each bookmark (preferably in the right-click context menu) to replace the current icon (either the default icon or the icon dowloaded from the bookm...

11.7 b21 crashes when trying to print a page

I'm using 11.7 build 21 on IE8 with XP Pro SP3. When I try to print a page, Avant crashes. It terminates immediately and disappears before the Print dialog is even displayed. This happens whether I use Ctrl+P, the Print command in the menu, or a print link on a page and is 100% repeatable. I have no...

Re: v11.7 build 15

How about creating an auto-execute script that wil automtically increase/decrease the text size? Look here and copy the script... Or Avant could simply be modified to remember set text size in previous session? Per-site basis? Maybe I don't think that everyone want to globally modify the text size....

Edit HTML?

I can't find anywhere in the user interface where you can select Edit HTML or anything like that. There doesn't appear to be anything in the help on this topic either. Am I missing it, or does it not exist?

IE7

IE7 is slated to be released in a few days (on Oct. 18), and it will be pushed out as an automatic update on Windows Update.

How will this affect Avant? Is there anything we need to do, or should we just let IE7 be installed?

Need to reimport favorites from IE

Every once in awhile, Avant Browser loses all my customization settings, and I have to reconfigure the menu and all the toolbars. I've seen this happen on three different computers. The last time it happened on this computer, the favorites list was empty. How can I force Avant to reimport the favori...

Thanks. I should have thought of that. Duh. It's too bad that IE doesn't retain the order the folders and links are in, though. Oh well, it was still a lot less work than rekeying all of them. :)

Exporting and importing Favorites

Is there any way to export the Favorites from Avant Browser, save them in a file, copy the file to another PC, and import them into Avant on that PC. Is there any way to do this?
