Re: Advant Browser has stopped working

I have experienced the same problem many times. I have Windows 10. Most of the time I ignore it and it has no effect on what I am doing. Within a few seconds I can proceed as if nothing happened.

Build 9 Firefox

When clicking on a link and then returning, the clicked link is supposed to enclosed with a dotted line rectangle. I use Firefox as my default rendering engine. With Build 9, the rectangle no longer appears. I also have Firefox as a stand alone browser and this capability [dotted rectangle] is still...

Re: Embedded Links Error in Build 8!!

And if you untick it again? You restored it to the ticked, but maybe it was working normally after the reboot. Just curious. The response after the reboot was extremely slow, before I restored the tick. The only web site where the original problem was a concern was my home page (gmail.com). My solu...

Re: Embedded Links Error in Build 8!!

Further comment - I tried the unticking and things just stopped working. I needed a Windows restart just to get things going and I restored it to the ticked.

Separate note. Using Firefox itself (not in Avant) there is no problem.

The problem was solved by reinstalling build 8 ultimate.

Maybe you can give an example url, link so she can check it.

@ mathman, try installing build 8 once again.
Did as suggested. Firefox rendering now works. I haven't tested for the bug.

Just checked again. Firefox engine not working. I never use Chrome, so I can't comment on it.

Re: Embedded Links Error in Build 8!!

Further note. At the moment Firefox rendering stopped working. The problem being discussed appears to be only in Firefox rendering, since I am now using IE11 and the problem described is not there.

rendering engine (Firefox)

I have been using Firefox as my rendering engine. At the moment it seems to have stopped working. I have recently loaded Windows 10 followed by Avant build 8. It has been working with Firefox for about 2 days. However this morning I had to switch to IE11 rendering to do anything - getting on the int...

I just installed build 8, same problem. Being used to it, it didn't take too much time to fix.

avant resets to default options

Twice within the last few days Avant stopped working with a problematic follow on. When I reloaded it, several changes were present. The default rendering engine was changed from Firefox to Chrome. The home page was changed to a Chrome message. Status bar was turned off. Skin was changed to a defaul...

The latest announced release is Avant 2016 build 3. I just received (when prompted by Avant) the latest version, which is build 5. What is going on?

Top of page bars

Attached is image of my home page. Somehow what should be the top bar is now the third bar. The top two bars should be the second and third. I don't know how it happened, but I would like to restore it to the original layout (with X in the upper right corner).

Re: Latest Avant installation complaint

I just got an automatic installation of Avant (2/29/16). The same set of problems I described in my original post appeared again.

Note I am now running Avant on 2 computers. This installation was on the second computer. It differs from the first in that it has IE11, not IE9.

mouse middle button

I have checked the option that, when opening a link using the middle button on the mouse, the tab will open in the foreground. Frequently it opens as background. This problem is recent - could it be Avant 2016 build 2?

history dating

The browser keeps track of web sites that I visited. When I look at the list (sorted by date), I find that at this time (approx. 9:30 PM Jan 1,2016) the current visit is listed as being on Sat., Jan. 2. Does this mean the history record is on Universal time, not my time (Eastern Std. - USA)?
