Is there a quick way to add urls to the IE Compatible list?

I'm using Avant (b119) on Windows 8.1 (ie with IE11), and with the IE Standards rendering engine (which works well with the majority of websites I access). However, those with flash components show error messages suggesting my flash player needs updating, which it doesn't. The problem is solved by v...

Re: Can't write text in some forums

Yes, build 119 has fixed this and other issues with IE11.

Many thanks.

Re: IE 11 , flash player

I had the same problem. Try reloading the page with the IE Compatible rendering engine, which fixed it for me (use the right click menu).

Doh! Hadn't thought of that. Yes, that's probably the problem so I'll just be patient.

Many thanks,

Can't write text in some forums

Since updating to Windows 8.1, for some unknown reason, I cannot now write posts for some forums using Avant - although thankfully the Avant forum is not one of them. Curiously, IE11 and Firefox on the same pc are ok. One such example is Money Saving Expert eg http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho...

Thanks for that. How stange that it's a one-time setting - one would never guess from the wording! Thanks for submitting the change request.

Re: Avant Downloader questions

Firstly, is there any way to set it so that the downloader window (only) closes when the file has finished downloading (in a similar way to how the normal Windows download window closes)? you can set it here: 1.png There appears to be a gotcha! This worked for a couple of days and then the setting ...

Re: Avant Downloader questions

Many thanks. (I'd previously tried the 'exit' option but it closed Avant as well as the downloader. However, I've tried it again and, as you say, it does just what I wanted).

Avant Downloader questions

I've been trying the Avant Downloader in recent weeks and would like to ask two questions about it. Firstly, is there any way to set it so that the downloader window (only) closes when the file has finished downloading (in a similar way to how the normal Windows download window closes)? Secondly, wh...

If I run favormaster I can see all favicons :shock:

What is favormaster? Are you saying it makes all the favicons appear correctly in Avant? And do they remain after favormaster is closed? :?

Re: Where have all the Favicons gone...?

My situation is pretty similar to Arandora - without the syncing between 2 pcs - and I am using Windows 8, 64 bit. I have also used AM-Deadlink in the past but not found it helpful with this problem.

Re: 'Hole' in bottom right hand corner

Under what situation,will the hole appear? If you restore Avant and then maximize it again, will the hole disappear? Do you use any software that may affect the window? The hole seems to appear on random occasions when I start up Avant (on perhaps 25% of occasions). Minimising and maximising doesn'...

Re: 'Hole' in bottom right hand corner

Please see the attached photo (same problem now in b112). As you can see, the 'hole' (which is always the same size when it occurs) allows one to see through to the desktop! The right hand tabs are hidden but clicking in roughly the right area still selects the appropraite tab. The hole only disappe...

Re: ---Downloader does not work any more.

It used to work but now when I try to download a file, downloader downloads something but then re-downloads the previous file I wanted to download!

Presumably the download database is corrupt. How do I delete it and start again please?

(Using 2013 b112 although problem started with b110)

'Hole' in bottom right hand corner

When using Avant (2013 v110) I regularly get a small rectangular 'hole' at the bottom right hand corner of the (Avant) screen - above the system tray area. More of a nuisance than anything else but becomes a pain when tabs disappear behind/into it. To get of it, I usually have to close and reopen Av...

Copy problem

I'm using Avant 2013 b110 (Lite version IE) on a Windows 8 pc . Ever since I updated to the 2013 version of Avant I've been having occasional copy problems - ie when copying (using the right click menu, or Ctrl+C) a web address or snippet of text/photo etc from a webpage, I've often found there's no...

Re: Where have all the Favicons gone...?

Slight improvement since changing to build 110. If I save a new bookmark, the favicon appears to be saved with it on the bookmarks list. However, simply visiting the site of an existing bookmark doesn't automatically update/import the favicon as in older versions of Avant (you have to manually save ...

Re: Favicon

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one who's lost the vast majority of favicons by using the latest versions of Avant (in IE bookmark mode). Like you they are still all visible in IE10 - although I'm using Windows 8 64bit so presumably IE10 is the 64 bit version? Would that affect things re Avant pe...

Further to the above, I am now running Avant b108 on two pcs - Windows 8 and Windows 7. The Windows 8 machine is still largely without it's favicons (as described above) but the Windows 7 pc has not lost them. I'm therefore beginning to wonder if this is just an Avant/Windows 8 problem. Can any othe...
