HTML bug

I tried posting an ad on Craigslist this morning ( first ad posting since switching to Orca ) and found that the html code I used to link to a large picture wouldn't work. It had a red underline on the br and img commands. When the ad was posted none of the linked pictures would show up and when I t...

Re: Google Maps locks up

Somehow, the Youtube play button has reappeared. I restarted the computer multiple times with no luck and then out of nowhere... it fixed itself.

Still locks up the browser clicking on the direction arrows in Google Maps.

No addons.

Re: Google Maps locks up

Just noticed that the play button on my Youtube videos is missing.

Maybe Orca isn't any better than Avant after all...

Google Maps locks up

A couple of days ago I dumped Avant and installed Orca. Seemed to be a big improvement up until today. After opening a page in Google Maps and going to Street View, any direction change will lock up the browser. You can drag the view 360 degrees but as soon and you click on a direction arrow, it loc...

Re: Search items

Been there... Not the one I'm looking for. That one seems to be more for Google.

Looks like I'm just gonna have to type all of them in.

Thanks.

Re: Search items

No.

I'm refering to the terms/keywords you type into a search/dialog box, as in Craigslist. These get saved somewhere and it would be nice just to import them from Avant to Orca.

Re: Search items

Is it going to be based on the IE engine, as is Avant? If so, I don't need anymore headaches. I think there is something wacky with my installed IE8 that Avant isn't happy with, so I'm not going back that way. So far, the Firefox platform seems to be working just fine. For now, I'd just like to know...

Search items

After way too much time spent fighting Avant/IE, I've given up. I just installed Orca and now I'm kicking myself for not doing it months ago. So far, it's not locking up, which is a major improvement. I've got everything figured out except copying my search terms over to Orca. Is there any way to co...

Re: I'm about to give up...

Axeman:

Thanks so much for the link to earlier versions ( that I asked the adminstrator for weeks ago...). I currently have v11.7 build 46 running and it has none of the problems the newest version has. No complaints yet. For now... I'm happy.

Thanks again.

I'm about to give up...

Here's another thing that I can't fix... Pretty much every time I start Avant, a box comes up saying it didn't shut down properly last time and do I want to open the last viewed pages. Not sure why that happens. The annoying thing is I can't seem to find anything in the Avant options that will stop ...

Re: Avant and secure sites/focus

Tinman:

Before you go back to Firefox, try Netcaptor.

The interface is configureable like Avant and doesn't have any problems like Avant. Maybe a bit less functionality than Avant but that's it.

I'm about to give up on this and go back myself. I used it for years before going to this headache.

Re: New Avant steals focus

I recently installed v130 on another computer in the house and have had no similar problems with it losing focus. So, I'm not sure what's causing this, though it did start right after installing the Avant upgrade. Too bad uninstalling and reinstalling hasn't fixed it, as it is quite annoying to have...

Re: New Weirdness with Outlook Express linking

Re-installed v130 a second time. This time I did a search for all Avant and ybrowser in the registry and deleted all items.

Fixed the linking problem.

More Weirdness

After loosing the ability to get Outlook Express links to open in Avant, now more changes. For some reason when I exit Avant (without closing the current open page) and then restart, the last viewed page reopens. Never did this before. I can't seem to find anything in the options to remedy this. Any...

New Weirdness with Outlook Express linking

This morning I find that links from Outlook Express no longer work properly in Avant (v130). If I make IE8 the default, the links work fine. Go back to Avant and nothing. Clicking on a link in OE will start Avant but after that it's nothing but a blank screen. Links work fine while in the browser. I...

Re: New Avant steals focus

Two upgrades later and it doesn't look like this isn't going to get fixed. Any way to post an earlier version to download? Something like 125-127? Is there any way when upgrading (or in this case, downgrading) that it will preserve the preferences. It's quite the pain in the butt to redo all the pre...

New Avant steals focus

For some reason, the new version of Avant steals focus from other programs. For example... when I try to use a right click context item in my file manager, it will pop up and then immediately disappear. I can do this over and over with the same results. The same thing happens sometimes when switchin...
