Re: Clearing cache for one site

I'm not aware of any way to do this in Avant, but you might be able to locate and delete the offending cookie by going to your Cookies folder and searching there for the file(s) that contain the name of the site in plain text. In Win7, the Cookies folder is at C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Mic...

Re: I cant get Avant to install correctly

Build 113 has been problematical for some users. You could temporarily drop back to one of the other recent builds prior to 113. They're available for download at http://avant.it-mate.co.uk/?c=Download& ... /13_Series. The 100+ builds are at the top of the list.

Re: custom skin

The skin maker that's currently available isn't compatible with Avant 2013. See http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic ... 91#p191941.

Considering the lousy shape Avant itself is still in and the amount of work it will take to fix it, the skin maker probably won't get done anytime soon.

Re: search engines

I added Bing to search engines and made it default. However, when Avant opens the search page the URL is all wrong. For example, if I search on "avant browser" the URL will be "http://www.bing.comavant+browser" Is this a bug or am I missing something? Use this for the URL for Bing: http://www.bing....

The ones that I'm having the most trouble with are Always create new tab in the: Foreground/Background and Enable mouse super drag and drop.

Which bugs will be fixed, and which ones will be ignored?

From what I've been reading here on the forums, Anderson has no intention of fixing many of the bugs that have been recorded for Avant 2013 (not to mention all the unfixed bugs that Avant 2013 inherited from Avant 2012).  :wtf:   :thumbdown: I hid the Bug Tracker, because it was not being used, and ...

Re: Making Avant 2013 look and work (kind of) like it used t

As I said, there is no way to move the Sidebar back to the left where we're used to seeing and using it. This applies to both the new and classic skins in the 100+ builds.

Re: Making Avant 2013 look and work (kind of) like it used t

I don't suppose there is a hidden (to me) way of putting the tabs at the bottom instead of the top? If you're using one of the classic skins, you should be able to put the Tabs Bar on the bottom. This option is also in the context menu for the toolbars. However, if you're using one of the new skins...

I can't find Compact Style option on the View Menu. Found the Compact Style under Tools in the Classic Skins. In all but one of the classic skins distributed with Avant 2013, Compact Style is the fourth item from the top in the View menu. Only one of these, the Zest skin, does not have it there (it...

Re: Be careful where you click

So what was the big difference between PSI 2 and 3? This is going to sound familiar. They drastically changed the UI, took out some of the features, and added some new bugs. Only thing to figure out now is which flavor of Linux I want to install. Decisions decisions decisions..... I'm leaning stron...

Does the RoboForm toolbar function properly with the IE or Chrome engine when you first start Avant?

Do your other Firefox add-ons work when RoboForm doesn't?

Re: Avant toolbar becomes unresponsive.

Have you tried minimizing Avant to the tray icon and then restoring it?

Cyberfox might be a good one, but it's 64-bit only, so I haven't been able to try it. All of the others seem to be going in the same di...
