Re: New Tab setting

The setting had remained untouched for many years.

Twice it has changed by itself

So twice I have changed it back to Foreground

New Tab setting

Twice recently, the New Tab setting has somehow changed itself from opening in Foreground (I only ever use this setting) to opening in Background.

Re: The message you have entered is too short

No - simply try to create a ebay advert (I didn't select the HTML option) - type in the text - when I tried to Preview the text, that was the first indication all was not well .. it simply did not display my own typed description

Re: The message you have entered is too short

I've just discovered another place where text is not recognized .... ebay


I've type a sales text and it got lost a few times ... then I remembered this issue

So it's definitely an issue I'm doing it using 2014 Build 5


I'm now going to use IE instead to place my advert ...

Re: The message you have entered is too short

I don't think it's really anything to do with the quantity of characters ...

It's that none of the characters were recognised as existing.

If you search for the message, it isn't that uncommon ...

The message you have entered is too short

I tried today and yesterday to post onto a forum - not this one. Both times when I hit Submit I got this error ... "The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 10 characters." Both times I switched to IE11 browser and posted perfectly well Is this an Avant iss...

Re: Toolbars in different position

I agree - can we have the old one back please ? There's no point in changing for the sake of it - a change needs to provide an improvement in functionality I can't see any improvement Why not do the sensible thing and create a separate browser for those using miniature screens ? After all, the requi...

Re: Deleting from the sidebar

It's onlly from the sidebar. I don't usually try withing "Organize" - I tend to give up and go into Explorer. It has been like this for years. On this 64 bit PC. On 32bit. On other PCs. Others have reported it too. You need to try to delete from within a folder. Perhaps have other folders below alre...

Re: Deleting from the sidebar

@xiaobing
I tried that recommendation long ago and it made no difference.

This PC is a new build so it's all new anyway.

Yes, I use IE favourites - I like to be flexible in which browser I'm using so I don't want any browser-specific ones.

Re: Bookmarks sidebar on & off

@ hornakapopolis One more thing ... you referred to the new skins as "the UI you seemingly want us to use" ... Is that true ? Could the good (old) ones disappear ? That really would be a mistake. The new ones are ugly and it's a struggle to differentiate the tabs, where one ends and the next one sta...

Re: Bookmarks sidebar on & off

@ hornakapopolis I think "no thought" is a bit harsh ... There are some many combinations of options it is easy to disappear up the proverbial ... For me, the sidebar is almost permanently open so for me there is always a lovely big History button available if I want to use it which is rare. However...

Re: Dedicated button - Highlight and Search Site

Another thought ... the Search button itself is far too small There is a dropdown arrow immediately to the left of it: a dropdown arrow immediately to the right of it ... How is anyone with a miniature screen supposed to hit the little bit in the middle ?? I've got a 24 inch screen and the whole poi...

Deleting from the sidebar

This issue arose a long time ago ... was it when 2012 first came out ?? I've raised it before: other have raised it before. If you right-click to delete any bookmark from the sidebar, especially if it is within a folder, it doesn't delete - instead it moves further down the list. then you have to fi...

Re: Bookmarks sidebar on & off

But what about the button ?? It doesn't make sense to force people with small screens to have the Status Bar visible in order to control the sidebar ? Especially when the big Bookmark button seems to do something which is of little use. Why not make the big Bookmark button do what it used to do ... ...

Bookmarks sidebar on & off

In the good old days, the Bookmarks button at the top of the screen, on the bar with lots of other useful stuff on it like buttons, address, search etc, made the sidebar appear and disappear. Now, that "same" button (now star-shaped) makes a big splodge of bookmarks appear in the middle of the scree...

Dedicated button - Highlight and Search Site

The dedicated buttons for Highlight and Search Site were extremely useful. Having to faff about with minature drop-downs is nothing like as good. Whilst minaturised controls might suit people with minaturized screens, it makes no sense for a lot of people Please add these back as options for those o...

@Keza
Yes, we can tell you are a "newbie" ...

We know very well what Avant offers now ... it's a lot less than it used to offer.

There are people who've been using it for years and used to make full use of its features ... :)

Re: Microsoft realized their mistakes...

Well said mbrazil ! I'm not only fed up with browsers designed to be bad, but also websites designed to be bad (bad meaning designed to run on a phone). On the other hand, I've seen one or two websites lately which have gone into reverse and are using a proper website again. There might be a lot of ...
