Re: Secure Site Icon

I believe that "green blur" (or, more specifically, the web address preceded by an icon on a green background, & with "https://" in green font) *IS* the only way one can tell they're on a secure page, now. I was afraid of that, just another useful tool removed. The new way don't always work, some s...

Secure Site Icon

Can anyone tell me what happened to the secure site lock icon? It used to be on the bottom right of the screen either on the tabs bar or the Status bar. I've been on a secure sites several times and couldn't find the icon. The first part of the address in the address bar was kind of highlighted with...

Re: Floating toolbar disappear

Appearently, there is something wrong in your computer. Can you see the floating toolbar for flash and pictures without check the option and without pressing ctrl? I haven't tried that yet since I have it set to always hide. But it worked the same way as the selected text and picture did. If they a...

Avant Locks External Drive

I had something happen tonight that's never happened before. I had my external USB backup drive on while I was surfing the internet, which in itself isn't unusual. When I went to disconnect the drive through the Windows USB disconnect icon, it came back and told me that I couldn't shut it off or dis...

Re: New Coke, Windows 8, Avant 2013?

"Remember New Coke? Twenty-eight years ago, Coca-Cola replaced the secret formula of its flagship brand, only to announce the return of the "classic" formula just 79 days later. Had it launched in 2013, Coke's Jay Moye suspects a social media backlash would have prompted it to reverse itself even s...

Re: Firefox Updates using IE Rendering

Is it possible that one of the pages opened with firefox engine? Maybe you assigned it but forgot. No, I don't use Firefox unless absolutely necessary for page compatibility, and if I had another tab open at the time it should have opened using the default IE 8 Standards as I have no pages set to o...

Re: Floating toolbar disappear

I can see the floating toolbar in XP. Is this option(Tools>Hold ctrl to show the floating toolbar) checked? The only time it works is if you do hold the ctrl button. Used to be just hovering over the selected text without the ctrl would display the bar. Did that setting go away? You can uncheck the...

Re: Some interesting statistics

Some big companies release "New & Improved" software every year or so with the sole intention of raking in more money. Seems that we have forgot that new & improved may not be better. Norton SystemWorks was a good example of this. I was using version 2005 when they "updated" (NOT!) to the next versi...

Re: Button Icon and Text Options GONE

Where are the Icon and Text options in Customize Buttons? Have they been moved? I guess it depends on which version of Avant your using. If your talking about the latest version, most all of the configurabilities have been removed from Avant using the old/new skin combination. Just take a look arou...

sometimes Avant is freezing too long - slowly, no lilac pages, but all tabs are freezing, but not frozen completely. :( Yes, I'm having this same exact problem, not frozen completely.

Re: Toolbars in different position

Hello! I have used for a long time Avant Browser, and I always like to put toolbars in the lower position, but in this new version 2013 build 107 I can't do. :( Please include this option again to move toolbars to lower position of the screen!
