Avant browser stopped working.

Occasionally I get a message "Avant browser stopped working". After closing it I start Avant. Avant opens forgetting my settings for default rendering engine, skins, mouse settings, and home page. I get a home page saying the latest version of Avant has been installed. This seems to be related to th...

Re: windows 10 and avant

windows 10 and avant

Recent bug reports seem to have a common thread. Windows 10 and build 5 forward. When build 7 (also build 6) is installed user settings get lost. Something is wrong! My experience includes the fact that Avant builds 7 gets installed, since it always thinks is is using build 5, even though build 7 ha...

Re: Build 07 says it is Build 05

I have two machines, one is on Windows 7 and the other Windows 10, both using Avant build 7. The windows 7 machine calls it build 7. Te windows 10 machine calls it build 5. Furthermore when I had build 6 on the windows 10 machine it was labelled build 5.

Re: Bookmarks lost

Sorry for blank - had keyboard problem.

History - several times I updated to build 6. After a while Avant would return to build 5. Latest occurrence lost my bookmarks. How do I get them back? I presume there is a folder containing them somewhere.

Re: bug in tab closing

Weirdness!!! I had been running Avant using IE is the default rendering engine. Recently funny things started happening, so I went back to using Firefox as the default. Much to my surprise, the bug which I reported above is no longer there. The only thing that happened recently is Windows 10 has bee...

Out of curiosity, how are you closing the tab?
Either way. Click on x in the tab or CtrlW.

Re: bug in tab closing

Further information - Windows 7 does not have this problem.

Summary - problem appears only (as far as I have tested) in the following combination: Windows 10 - Avant - Firefox rendering.

bug in tab closing

Step 1-open website
step 2-open new tab
step 3-try to close new tab - result: website closed, new tab open

If I open several new tabs from the web site and then attempt to close, the website and all the previous tabs close until the last opened tab is the only one left

I just installed build 5

Bookmarks lost

A few hours ago I opened Avant and clicked on bookmarks. My list was gone! This has happened in the past on occasion, but then closing and reopening Avant got them back. This time that didn't work. I had to import a set that I had saved six months ago, but it was obviously a nuisance. Any idea why a...

Two problems: When trying to watch a program on CBS, (using Firefox engine) I was prevented because of AD blocking. I have not activated Ad blocking. I switched to IE11 engine and was able to watch the program. I have been sent a video, which I tried to watch (Firefox engine). Right after it started...

Re: Build 12 install

On Nov. 13th I downloaded the install file twice. In addition I would get a prompt (for new version) when I opened Avant (I did this twice also). In all cases I found myself in an endless loop, terminating when I said no to the prompt. On Nov 14th I did not get the prompt when I opened Avant. I then...

Re: Advant Browser has stopped working

I've never had more than around 5 tabs open, so I can't help you there. Could having so many tabs open contribute to the problem?

In my case it happens only once in a while - maybe days apart.

Re: Advant Browser has stopped working

You have my sympathy. It kept happening to me, but I can safely ignore it most of the time.
