Re: Drag and drop don't work with facebook

Yes, I had also noted that drag-&-drop (which I use to open a link in a new tab) has been defaulted in Facebook to act as "paste selection to Status Update window". Annoying, to say the least.

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

How about this? avant button.png It looks a little strange,the one from brawnymike is better IMO.

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

I'd still be happiest with some sort of dropdown menu icon button which draws a little attention and gives a novice user some HINT that there's a menu hidden there. How about a button which looks like this ...

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

About the avant icon on upper left,how do you think the suggestion of lolo1? The pictures are no longer there, so I have no idea what his/her suggestion is. lolo's suggestion was to have an Avant icon button at top-left that was only one bar tall, but wide enough to contain both the logo & the word...

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

Of the options presented, I like the last two the least due to what appears to be lack of option to move tab bar to bottom or to have menu bar visible. Frankly, I'm only going to like a layout which allows me those two things. I assume clicking the large "A" icon will present a dropdown version of t...

Re: Problem downloading the update

Although I have experienced the same slow download problem other have recently, today's download (of AB Ult 2013 build 23) was lightning fast for me. Perhaps it was the time at which I initiated the download (roughly 2 PM, Pacific Time [California]).

Re: Printing

Print preview is still available, but finding it depends on which skin (selected from the context-sensitive [right-click] menu when click on the toolbar) you use: If you are using one of the older (classic) skins--those found below the line on the skins submenu--Print Preview can be found on the mai...

Re: Another reason I don't like the new UI

But, here's a new quibble I have with the new UI: Just after I posted my reply (above), one of my little dogs threw himself on my keyboard, apparently pressing F12 and making my view "Full Desktop." When I right-clicked on the tool bar, with the intention of switching my skin choice back to Aero Gla...

Re: Another reason I don't like the new UI

First, I agree with you (for the most part) and feel your pain ...

That said, in the new skins, all of the old menu items are hidden on a drop-down menu revealed by clicking on the blue Avant icon found at the beginning of the tab bar.

Re: Return of some old problems with zoom & visited link col

Is the zoom problem (pages opening at and staying at 100% rather than the default zoom) going to be fixed? As I said in the first post in this thread, both of the problems I mentioned were fixed for at least a year before returning in AB 2013, so clearly there was something good in the coding which ...

Re: Let's have a poll

Until the new interface toolbars (and placement of the tab bar) is fully customizable, I definitely prefer--and exclusively use--the older interface (specifically, Aero Glass skin).

Re: Avant mistakenly takes focus

This brings another question to mind: is it necessary for Avant, or any browser for that matter, to take the focus when a link is passed to it from another app? Is this just a convention, or is it unavoidable? It seems to me that it would be much better for the browser to load the link in the backg...

Re: Please limit the auto-complete feature for URL's

I'm confused. When I start to type a URL into the address bar, it autocompletes ONLY to the first alphabetical result, showing a drop-down with that result and others that might be right if I continue to type--all in alphabetical order. That SHOULD give you the mainpage first (as you have requested)...

Re: Return of some old problems with zoom & visited link col

Correction to my last post: The zoom problem is getting worse for some reason. Increasingly, even new tabs opened from links on a AB tab are opening at 100% zoom.

Re: Return of some old problems with zoom & visited link col

Update on the Zoom issue: I've discovered that I'm also having a brand new problem with tab opened from links imbedded in e-mails. Specifically, I'm not referring to an e-mail application (such as Outlook 2010), but my e-mail box at the ISP Excite.com. Even though I have my defaults set to open link...
