Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Do you have any skinning/blinds/themed software installed that changes windows installed? No nothing I am aware of. Are any other programs affected? No other programs are affected in this way, only Avant and Orca browsers. Can you do a screenshot of the entire desktop next time please. Yes I certain...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Additionally:
I have also noticed regarding 'Orca' that the same 1/8" gap in the frame on the right side, is present also in 'Orca' when I load it, although the scroll bars are wider like that of Firefox or other browsers. I'll try and include a screen shot before I manually widen the frame.

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Wow, Ok, I went all the way back to (ab7_0_5_2) version, I forgot how much Avant has changed over the years, but yes the original scroll bar width (wider) was present in that version. That would seem to confirm that the problem is being in or having started in a later version. I was thinking about h...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Yes, I just found that link to the archive and was editing my last post when I was informed I couldn't edit it any more. *Grins* It's too late tonight for me to continue on this, but tomorrow I will look deeper than B-26, but I was sure the scroll bar narrowing was much more resent than B-26? None o...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Oh my, the oldest versions I managed to actually save were 11.7 B-26 and 11.7 B-41. As it turns out I just tried both yesterday to see if I still had a memory usage problem and they both did have the same narrow scroll bar and sightly off frame size as well. So I think you will have to go back even ...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Yes, actually now that you mention it, I noticed that as well. Every time I load the Avant Browser I have to stretch it to the right just about the same size/distance as the difference between the size of the scroll bar now, and the size it used to be. About 1/8 - 1/4 inch. Hum, I never connected th...

Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

I noticed a few versions back that the vertical scroll bar width changed and got very narrow compared to its previous setting. It has stayed this narrow ever since. I have that set in my display features to a rather wider than usual, because of aging eyesight. I find it hard to actually find with th...

Re: Found massive memory eating problem and fixed it.

LOL, Trust me, you don't want to know. And no it was not a porn site. :shock: It was a Torrent TV shows database site related to zoink.it. What the database does is post links to ALL, and I mean ALL torrents that apparently have ever been uploaded. There were more torrents listed there than my 2G me...

Re: Constant freezes and 50% CPU usage

I too have just discovered this is happening to me as well. For one example, when I am answering a question on Yahoo Answers the CPU usage jumps way up and typing get slow, sticky and jerky. I have not encountered a freeze though, but close. I do not use any add-ons to Avant what so ever. This also ...

Found massive memory eating problem and fixed it.

Very sorry Guys, I just found out that the Massive memory eating problem I reported as possibly being connected to the latest version of Avant, was in fact one particular web page I had opened in Avant that I somehow missed every time I loaded Avant. I dropped that web page and 'presto fixo'. In fac...

Re: Newest version eats excessive Ram Memory?

Great Merlin's Ghost! I had no idea it was that bad. 3,237 Errors, 4 warning(s). I assume you also tried this page in IE/Avant and found it worked exactly as I had prepared the document/diagram? Hum, as for the other Yahoo Profile avatar problem; I wonder if it could have anything to do with me havi...

Re: Newest version eats excessive Ram Memory?

Assuming URLs will work in the forms I can provide the two mentioned URLs. The first is a Microsoft Front Page diagram that I made myself for a Fan Fiction story I wrote a couple years ago and works fine in an IE based browser. It never worked in, Firefox (any version), Netscape, Opera or Orca . . ....

Re: Newest version eats excessive Ram Memory?

Actually, I don't use any IE related plug-ins or add on's. That little red sentence warning me away was enough. I don't use Yahoo or Google etc tool bars, stickily only Avant tool bars are used. In fact there is nothing different about my Avant Browser now than there has been in the last 5 years . ....

Newest version eats excessive Ram Memory?

Hum, After I downloaded the latest version of Avant 11.7 B-46. I noticed a massive amount of Ram memory being used to open and download the usual 10-12 web pages, I always have opened. I am wondering if anyone else has reported this or could it somehow just be me? I compared both Avant and Orca with...

Auto Fill P/W Screen "Always On Top" is NOT

One thing I think needs to be fixed is the Auto Fill password screen. This needs to be set to "ALWAYS ON TOP" as when clicking to edit a P/W, the screen stays behind the auto fill drop down and if you have lots in the auto fill you can't even see that the screen has come up behind the dropdown and y...
