Latest Avant installation complaint

The latest version of Avant was automatically installed. In the process several settings were changed - unwanted changes, and it took me a while to straighten out. 1) Default rendering: It gave me Chrome. I had Firefox. 2) Skins: It gave me above the line. I had below the line. 3) Middle mouse: New ...

Re: runtime error in 2015b17

I was about to report a bug - it turns out that it is the one being discussed here. Since it is a minor nuisance (version 17 - no freeze, just message), what is the safest course of action - ignore it or try the suggestions here?

Re: Firefox rendering engine

Quirk. The problem came back. I checked the hardware acceleration - it was on. I had recently updated Firefox, so it may have been turned back on again. Could a restart turn it on again? It is off now.

Re: Firefox rendering engine

I disabled hardware acceleration. So far so good. Since the problem had been intermittent, it will take a while before I'm sure.

Thanks.

Re: Firefox rendering engine

The Firefox(es) addons I have read differently. There was an option in my (stand alone) Firefox called "Adobe Flash Protected Mode", which I turned off. In Avant-Firefox there was no such option . However when I turned it off, both Firefoxes worked properly. I am confused as to the connection betwee...

Re: Firefox rendering engine

Two versions (similar - dated 5/17/15) 17 ActiveX, 17NPAPI, both version 17.0.0.188.

When I called for repair, I got an error message (in each case). If I uninstall, I wouldn't know how to install.

Further information. I have a stand alone version of Firefox. When I tried the page there it loaded, but it crashed part way through, with a message Adobe Flash player had crashed. At other times I have gotten similar messages when using Avant-Firefox. If that is the problem how do I repair Adobe Fl...

Firefox rendering engine

I encountered a web page which could not be opened using Firefox rendering, although it opened properly using the other three engines. The page is:

http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1VRyQX/e7 ... PIRE17.swf

Using Firefox I just got a blank page.

Re: CHANGE BROWSER DESIGN FUTURE

It is not completely clear to me what you are looking for. I am using the current version of AB with Firefox as the default engine. I also have AeroGlass as my skin (any below the line will do - only difference is colors).

Re: Firefox rendering problem

I saw on this site http://whatis.techtarget.com/fileformat/MHT-MHTML-document-Microsoft you need an add-on to open .mht files in firefox. Maybe you can check if you use an add-on like "Mozilla Archive Format" in Firefox. If so, you need to install that in the Avant Firefox too. add-on is here: http...

For future reference, when you want to attach an MHT file, you'll need to zip it first.
I have it now.

Firefox rendering problem - II

Attached is zip file of .mht file I was talking about previously. (I had to submit it as a new bug, since I wasn't able to attach with a comment previously). I don't know why it isn't downloaded. Message is confusing?

This is the current version of the file, which I also have. The one in question is an older version which illustrated the Latex results. The current version only describes them.

Firefox rendering problem

HelpLaTeX Symbol Tables(IE) - Mathematics - WikiEducator.html Attached file is supposed to be .mht, but it could not be attached as such. More serious problem (as .mht): When opening with IE rendering it opens properly. When opening with Firefox rendering, it goes completely haywire - opening an "i...

Re: new tab foreground-background

Further confusion. I currently am using two computers, both with AB 2015 build 9 and Firefox as the default engine. The only difference is in the versions of IE, one has IE9 and the other has IE11. On the IE9 computer the new tab always opens in the front, but on the IE11 computer I have the problem...

It may be irrelevant, but have you tried a different skin? I believe that above the line is supposed to give a more modern look than below the line.
