Re: Search term

I don't know how it was fixed - perhaps it was fixed by some change without your knowing.

All I know is that it doesn't work now.

Re: Search term

Correct - there was a time once before when it didn't work ... then it was fixed.

Now it doesn't work again.

Now it needs fixing again.

Search term

I've just noticed avant has stopped correcting a mis-spelt search term .... For example, search for "smartphoe" (mis-spelt in the search box) > hit Search button (using Google in my case) Results appear but at the top is "Showing results for [u]smartphone[/u]" If I double-click on "smartphone" it sh...

Re: The message you have entered is too short

I forgot about this issue till just now when trying to create an ebay advert ... Using Avant, it still doesn't work - it just doesn't recognize the text description at all - it pretends not to see it - and then blanks the text field. No point in my starting again as I will be going around in circles...

Re: Ad Muncher is now Free!

Or you could use AdFender - free anyway and possibly just as good

(haven't tried Muncher for long time .. perhaps it closes space better ... don't really notice now ... )

Re: Drop-down window width

Everything was installed before the problem appeared ... In April 2014 I rebuilt the PC on new hardware, so over a couple of days most things were installed - see the screenshots from the Control Panel. I believe I installed a 2013 version of Avant initially, then risked a 2014 version ... On 9th Ma...

Re: Drop-down window width

Something else I should mention is that with some drop-down windows, not only does it expand to the right, but the entire screen then goes all black ... then all white (or vice versa) ... then the screen comes back This is happening in 2014 build 7. I believe the first build with these symptoms was ...

Re: Drop-down window width

I have just tried that same Aviva drop-down after changing the default engine to IE Compatible The result is that the Aviva window now works fine EXCEPT that dropdown does NOT have a drawn line on the right-hand side - the shape cleary covers the background but has no drawn edge HOWEVER, that is not...

Re: Drop-down window width

That's the Microsoft Office Shortcut bar ...
from Office 2000 ... and that's how long it's been on the screen without causing any problems.

That dropdown is fine with other browsers on this PC

Re: Drop-down window width

It definitely happens ...

The left dropdown does what it should do, then take a few seconds to expand rightwards, across the screen

Internet Explorer works fine on both drop-downs

Re: Drop-down window width

IE11 Standards

It doesn't happen every where.

In fact, that example I gave - the screen has two drop-downs next to each other

One is a problem, as per the screenshot, the other works fine ...

Drop-down window width

AB Lite 2014 build 6

See the attached jpg
Drop-down windows gradually expand right across the screen
This happens on lots of sites in build 6 (and earlier)

Try this website http://www.aviva.co.uk/existing-customers/
and select the drop-down beneath "Retrieve a quote"

Re: New Tab setting

Thank you - well spotted Mathman :clap: But what is the purpose of that ? I'm sure I've hit that going for the zoom ... that's what happens when you try to miniaturize everything ... I've just tested that button - it does change the setting - but the hover message doesn't change Whichever setting it...
