Re: Slight delay in reloading tabs in new session

I had noticed this behavior (since rollout of AB 2013) whenever I start my AB session. In my case, however, the tabs being opened are homepage, additional homepages, & startup Autofills (rather than tabs saved from the last session). I had *assumed*--perhaps incorrectly--that the pause(s) occurred b...

Return of some old problems with zoom & visited link colors

About a year ago (I think), I got resolutions to two problems I was having (see closed thread at http://forum.avantforce.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=31163&hilit=+zoom). Both of those problems have returned since the rollout of the official (post-beta) builds of AB 2013. Specifically: (1) When I open an...

Re: Same rendering problem in Build 20

Maybe Anderson should pull the new interface back out and just work to fix all the problems in the classic interface and improve the performance and stability of Avant. From the posts on the forums, it seems as though a lot of us are reverting back to the classic skins anyway. I tend to agree with ...

Re: I can`t change position of toolbars

I can confirm. It *appears* that the collection of buttons representing Print, Save, History, etc., may be moved to either before or after the Search box, but NOT between the buttons for Back, Forward, Reload, Home, etc., & the Address bar. Yet, even that "appearance" of movability is bogus: Re-star...

Re: Avant Browsing not responding

Rightly or wrongly, I've always followed the practice of doing a re-boot after an uninstall, in the belief that some vestiges of the uninstalled program are likely to remain until a re-start of Windows ... either by design (that is, the uninstall routine stipulates certain bits will not be removed u...

Re: Avant Browsing not responding

My thumbnail preview is not working (The show tab thumbnail preview is checked.) That specific problem--which has only started since the roll-out of AB 2013--would suggest that there is something of AB 2013 still extant on you hard drive even though you're running AB 2012. When you re-installed AB ...

Re: Split View icon missing

I just noticed that xiaobing has responded, in a different thread, that the Split button has been intentionally removed from the tab bar.

Re: Extra buttons

I was just commenting on this on another thread. (For what it's worth, I'm using Windows 7 (32-bit) & Aero Glass skin.) After testing Split view (the subject of that thread), I discovered I suddenly had the minimize/restore/close buttons at the end of my menu bar (which puts them, as it happens, dir...

Re: Split View icon missing

The screen captures you reference aren't appearing. I haven't used split view much (or at all) in the past but, like you, I find that the split button next to the new tab button ("+") in the tab bar has gone missing in AB Ult. 2013 bld. 12. However, I am able to get Split View to work by selecting i...

Re: MM Button

I, too, had been having MM-click issues thoughout the most recent betas of AB 2013 (probably beta 6-on), but they went away with a complete, clean install of AB 2013 Ult. build 12. Have you tried a clean install (rather than install-over-old-version) of the latest build?

Re: We can't connect to Outlook right now. Please try again

I haven't used split view much (or at all) in the past, but I believe it's not quite right with me, too. Most notably, isn't there supposed to be a split button next to the new tab button ("+") in the tab bar? I don't seem to have that button anymore. N.B.: I'm using AB Ult. 2013 bld. 12 in Windows ...

Re: Avant 2012

Tinman, you can have the speed of AB 2013 and the tab bar on the bottom if you use one of the skins other the those in the Stickers & Opal families (also known as the new GUI skins). Using one old GUI skins (such as Aero Glass) will allow you to manipulate your AB 2013 layout so that it appears to b...

New profile fields: "Skin" & "Default Rendering Engine"

May I suggest/request the addition of a "skin" field to the user profile info? I've noticed, since we now have skins (in AB 2013) which materially change the interface, that the problems or bugs experienced by "old skin" users are different from those experienced by "new skin" users. As such, having...
