Re: Please bring back the customizations of the toolbars

I agree, this is not something to merely consider, functions that were available must be restored and bugs that didn't exist must be fixed. However since we didn't hear any word from Anderson himself, we cannot know if he is still active in developing Avant. He probably put it on pause for some of t...

Re: Why do I like Avant ?

I've been using Slimbrowser today. It's the closest to Avant that I've tried. It does most of the things I like. Not quite as attractive as Avant whichever skin is used, but overall pretty good and still being developed, it seems ... And for portable devices, there is a separate Portable version .....

Re: [Request] Updated engines for previous versions

Both mbrazil & I have previously made this same request. Perhaps third time will be the charm ... Sorry, i didn't see it posted. Then i guess this request is lost cause too. I can only hope some of these requests will be fulfilled, and not just recorded (discarded) for version 2033. That reminds me...

[Request] Updated engines for previous versions

As we all know latest 2013 versions are still not stable (many bugs that aren't and "cannot be fixed") and have multiple missing features that are available in previous versions. I have waited eagerly for a month to see whats new update 109 is going to bring, but only 2 minor fixes per month isn't r...

Re: Why do I like Avant ?

I quite like Opera So why would Avant be aiming to make itself as inadequate as Chrome, IE, Firefox etc ? Surely the point about Avant is to add functionality to those other browsers ?? Opera recently switched to Blink (Webkit / Chrome) engine and made version 15.0 using it. If you haven't tried it...

Re: Avant Browser keeps asking to save auto fill

The only thing you can try is using older versions like 2013 build 23 or 2012 build 197 preferably USB (portable) one. From what i have seen, build 108 is filled with bugs, i wouldn't consider it a stable release. I'm not sure if that bug was present before though. So the only thing i can suggest is...

Re: Installing Firefox extensions in Avant on two Win accoun

That's probably because normal version of avant is saving its profile settings to Current User, and not to All Users like FF. Since you have 2 users you will have to install everything separately on both of them. Online Storage in Avant is most likely not used on engine specific addons. Best way to ...

Re: Here's a novel idea!

Many bugs cannot be fixed. If this is true then avant died with 2012 b197. And what for? Sacrificing stability and functionality just for changing interface? Maybe Anderson should consider about rolling back to 2012 and rewriting everything again. Otherwise we would probably all learn to program ou...

One way to do this is to just copy all files from your old avant version located here: avant browser portable 107\profiles\.default\gecko\Mozilla\Avant\Profiles\profile1.default to the profiles folder of your new version and overwrite: avant browser portable 108\profiles\.default\gecko\Mozilla\Avant...

Re: Firefox vs. Firefox

Using portable version of Avant should get rid of those problems permanently, since all Avant settings would be stored and isolated in its own directory. I've had about 4 avant versions and firefox installed at same time, all using different settings.

Re: Accessing Hard Disk and Keylogger

I myself have my suspicion too. I must admit that when i started using Avant i noticed some suspicious behavior with hard disk and network utilization. I started using Avant when Avant 2012 Build 197 was released (around 1. March 2013.). I have though that it is just a bit slower browser than the ot...

Interesting. I was sure at least outlook created the key. In that case this fix maybe won't help but its worth a try. Anyway, you should now try to create the key yourself.

Re: Your suggestion about the Avant interface

Avant browser menu , Bookmarks/autofill menu and tabs must be all in the first line. This sounds good, i'm only worried about Tab Bar space, which could be too small when browser is not maximized or for users with small displays. Maybe cut that " Browser" text part from "Avant Browser" button to sa...

No rush, FF 20 didn't really improve much, but it did ruin its Download Manager.

Sounds more like a flash problem or your system. Have you tried flash in any other non-IE browser? Try installing old flash player version 10.1.102.64, i have been using it for years without encountering any problem. In fact, whenever i tried any newer version, i got some random bugs and a lot of us...
