Re: Avant Browser and Java

Is it possible that you have Microsoft's Java installed and, since Avant uses it by default (for some reason :?), it's shutting down Sun's Java therefore shutting down it's system tray icon?

Re: synchrionizin AB bookmarks with IE or FF favorites

Which means that if you are, Avant is looking at the same files IE does for Favorites. (YOU can double-check this at Tools > Avant Options > Miscellaneous > Use IE Favorites as bookmarks)

That means that IE has the same Favorites as Avant already. You can use IE's function to export them from there.

Re: Bleep on Avant Browser Options

Yeah, I would guess that it's the frequency of the sound when using Options tat's annoying, no the sound itself. I've noticed this on another program I use. In Vista, it dings. In XP, it doesn't. In the Sounds portion of the Control Panel, it's the "Default Beep" sound. No really one I'd like to tur...

Make sure the Addons bar is select in View > Toolbars for IE buttons and make sure the toolbar itself is selected in View > Toolbars for IE's toolbars.

Re: I have this floating favorites bar that pops up on the left

Are you in Full Screen or Desktop mode? (I'm assuming you are even though you didn't mention it.)

Try uchecking Tools > Avant Browser Options > Miscellaneous > Auto-hide the left side panel in Full Screen/Desktop mode

It's on the Status Bar. If the Status Bar isn't showing, it's not going to be down there.

Re: Netscape Site Controls

Just a note that IE's zones don't really do this. Instead of being able to 6 or 7 specific settings per site, you have to decide which one of only three groups to place a site in. If you have a site that you trust that has a lot of unneccesary flash content, where do you put it? Not in Restricted be...

Re: more than one version of avant at same time?

As long as you download and install it to a different location, you can keep both. Especially now that Avant uses a different folder in Application Data. I used to do this time from time and would sometimes have trouble with settings in the new version after having had the old version open. The prob...

Re: Removing items from the Status Bar

For clarification, the Internet icon tells you what IE Security Zone you are in. Tools > Internet Options > Security

The Working Online tells you if you should be connected to remote devices. (Working offline means you can't access files or sites on your intranet, too.)

Re: Avant is creating Duplicate Bookmark instead of overwirting

I'm pretty sure that this has been reported before. Also, since it's adding the (2) to it, I always assumed that it was programmed behavior and, therefore, not necessarily a bug.

I think it would be better to at least have a prompt.

Re: help heeeeeeelp

And more importantly, did you re-install from a new download? If your isntallation package is corrupted, you can re-install from it all you want and it won't do any good.

Re: 11.6b16 USB Version Bug

It's still creating a .default folder and a URLs.dat file on my hard drive when I use my USB version. Everything else seems to be correct, though. Man, for those of us that actually use the USB to work from dfferent areas, this is going to be a mess to figure out. What does the URL file do? I didn't...

Re: Avant 11.6 USB not saving any bookmarks or AutoFills

So there was a 15? It's nice to know I'm completely nuts, but I had started to convince myself that it was another 13. I do know that the file sizes were different.

Not a big deal as long as this is getting fixed.
