Setting or customizing default search engine in Avant 2013

  The method for specifying the default search engine is somewhat different in Avant 2013 from what it was in earlier versions. In Avant 2013, the Search Engine options in Avant Browser Options look like this: search engine.jpg To use one of the engines that are pre-configured in the Web Search tab,...

Re: XPCOM

Search your hard drives for xpcom.dll, and if you find any, post the sizes, creation dates, and locations of them. You might be able to fix the problem by downloading the USB version of Avant, and after unpacking the files, copy the gecko folder from the USB version to the Avant program folder, over...

Re: Cannot log in to financial ints

I have two engines available to me have tried both does not make a difference. What do you mean you have two engines available? You should have the IE, Firefox, and Chrome engines available in Avant Ultimate. Is one of them missing? Something else to check is whether any settings in your security s...

Re: Qclean Firefox Addon Issue

I tested QClean in Avant with the Firefox engine and I'm experiencing the same symptoms you described. I also tested it on Firefox 23, and it works fine there.

Re: Be careful where you click

CNET has a service to remind me when programs on my computer need updating. I think you're probably referring to CNET TechTracker. You might want to give Secunia PSI (Personal Software Inspector) a try. It has the same purpose, is provided and maintained by a company that specializes in vulnerabili...

Be careful where you click

This isn't a new concept, but now Google's doing it.

"Be careful where you click to download software – Google's AdWords are becoming increasingly deceptive, tricking users into clicking ads that feature "Download" buttons!"

Re: One per month?

Hope the changelog will be more than just engine update... xiaobing said yesterday that, "As (far as) I know, next build will only fix bugs. No other changes." I replied asking about Gecko 23, but she hasn't answered yet. Here's her post: http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=33018#p19...

Re: Cannot log in to financial ints

Does the message you get include any specific information? Do both machines use the same internet connection? If not, is the one that can't connect to the bank set up to use a proxy in Avant? Here's something you can try on the PC that can't connect: In Tools > Internet Explorer, click Internet Opti...

Re: Build 110 - macro key program doesn't work

Do you experience the problem on the same websites in the Chrome browser outside of Avant? What about in the Firefox and IE browsers? If you don't have the problem in the Chrome browser, Avant is apparently either causing or contributing to the problem (if so, I'll move this thread to Bug Reports). ...

I don't see an option for "Open home page in a new tab" anywhere. In your post at the start of this thread, you said, "In the New Tab section, I have it set to Open Home Page in a New Tab." Go to Tools > Avant Browser Options > New Tab, and in the middle section on the right under 'Always open a ne...

Re: Build 110 - Pressing home key opens new tab

When you said, "When I press the Home key," I thought you were referring to the keyboard. It doesn't matter how or when you open the home page. When 'Open home page in a new tab' is checked, a new tab is opened whenever the home page is loaded, including when you click the Home Page button. It's wor...

Re: Names Under Standard Buttons

Those capabilities were removed starting with Avant 2013 build 100. Requests have been recorded to reinstate these options, so they may return in a future build.

Re: Ybrowser High CPU Utilization

As a workaround, you might try running a utility that can terminate or temporarily reduce the priority for any instance of ybrowser.exe that exceeds whatever level of CPU usage you set for it. Three that I know of that can do this are Process Lasso, AnVir Task Manager, and Chameleon Task Manager. Wh...

Re: Build 110 - macro key program doesn't work

Have you tried it on the same page loaded with the other engines? I also use AutoHotkey (for the same purpose, as well as others), and I've seen the same behavior in Avant (I use the Firefox engine for almost everything), but it's much worse on some sites than others. For the most part, the characte...

Re: Build 110 - Pressing home key opens new tab

When Avant is set to open the home page in a new tab, Alt + Home opens the home page (in a new tab). Maybe one of your Alt keys is stuck actuated. Try tapping each of the Alt keys several times. This usually solves the problem when one of them is stuck.
