Re: Latest install says poof to current Favorites

I deleted/moved the dat files and the bookmarks disappeared. So then... does bookmark.dat actually hold the favorites or is it a pointer to another file? The reason I ask is that when I copied a saved bookmark.dat from a backup, it didn't restore the original favorites lost in the install. Let's pas...

Re: Latest install says poof to current Favorites

I deleted IE bookmarks because thay weren't current. As I asked earlier... Are the bookmarks for Avant really in the bookmarks.dat file? I don't believe so because I found a backup from a week or so ago and copied this to the correct directory and it did nothing to restore the bookmarks I lost with ...

Re: Latest install says poof to current Favorites

Fixed the error message. Uninstalled Quicktime. Now I notice another problem after installing the latest Avant. My browser fonts have gotten somewhat bolder. The font didn't change, just bolder. About halfway between normal and bold. I do remember this happening once before and if figured out how to...

Re: Latest install says poof to current Favorites

After deleting the favorites in Docs&settings\admin\appdata\favorites, I still have the bookmarks working in Avant. If I start IE, the bookmarks are gone. So, Avant stores them someplace else. Is it actually possible that my hundreds and hundreds of bookmarks are stored in a 26kb file in D&S\admin\a...

Re: Latest install says poof to current Favorites

Is there any place my Favorites may be hiding other than c:\documents and settings\administrator\favorites? I've always thought this was the place my favorites reside on the drive ( Windows XP ). For some reason these favorites are months old. I'm baffled about this one. Everything was fine 'til I d...

Latest install says poof to current Favorites

Just dl'd the latest version and after install, my 'favorites' reverted to a month ago.

How would something like that happen?

Re: Links on Bllkmark bar

I should have mentioned, there is no option in the dropdown menu to 'select as root'.


(Bllkmark? How'd that get there?)

Links on Bllkmark bar

Just updated to 2010 build 2 and my Links folder is now just another folder on the bookmarks bar. Previously,only items in the Links folder would be there. Now all folders are showing up. The old fix of right clicking on a folder and assigning it to the bookmark bar does not work. Can we fix this or...

Re: Still no Ctrl/mouse scroll wheel = change text size??

I tried Orca... Seemed like just another Avant clone. No where did I find any way to increase text size using the control button and the mouse wheel.

Also, the addon mentioned above looks to zoom. Not what I'm looking for.

Still no Ctrl/mouse scroll wheel = change text size??

I switched over from Net Captor about a year ago after being told that this feature was being worked on to implement. Still nothing. I'm disappointed. I know a $20 donation isn't much but, really... how hard is it to get this to work? In the end, Avant is no better than my old browser. Anyone know o...

Re: Address bar/Tab question

You got it! That's the problem. I'm using the old control/enter that I've been used to (NetCaptor). I haven't typed in .com in years...

Any way to get around this?

Re: Address bar/Tab question

I already had that checked. It still doesn't work. It opens the new tab, you can see the loading progress on the tab, but it doesn't actually open that tab.

Re: Address bar/Tab question

I knew I should have made that a bit clearer. I have that option already checked. I want it to 'open' that tab too. Instead of just 'creating' a new tab I want the program to open that tabs website. (Does that make sense?) Right now, typing in a new address just creates a new tab at the bottom of th...

Re: Great job on Avant Browser!! I have a few questions

I did try the 'Management' bar before and it was blank. But for some reason now it's working and I've got it tucked up there in the right corner. Exactly what I needed! Google browser is now working! Thanks! As to the 'control-mouse wheel' changing text size... Which IE update do you recommend, 7 or...

Great job on Avant Browser!! I have a few questions

I've been a NetCaptor user for years because of its ability to customize layouts and minimize the screen footprint. I tried Avant about two years ago and saw its similarities but it wasn't quite there at the time. I requested some improvements and you've included them and many more. I'm glad I came ...
