Re: When is a default browser not a default browser?

Thanks, brawnymike. I'm not sure if that will make a difference - I have the checkbox ticked on others pcs and it doesn't prevent Avant handling the Excel links there - but will give it a try.

When is a default browser not a default browser?

I have a Windows XP PC on which I've been using Avant (currently ultimate 2012 build 180) as the default browser for ages. The PC also has Office 2003 installed. The funny thing is that when I click on a link (inc. those in Outlook and Word) the website appears in Avant. However, when I click on a l...

My experience is identical to Nixxxed.

Re: AB creates new tab with blank and unresponsive page

We are talking about randomly occurring tabs that crash before the page is rendered. It just happened again, and I took a screenshot: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q196/Nixxxed/th_BlankTab.jpg It looks like the browser loads the page header (title?), then just gives up. No amount of refreshing...

Re: AB creates new tab with blank and unresponsive page

I have exactly the same problem using Build 173. Never had it before with earlier versions.

Re: Back again!IE Favorites - Delete confirm box appears at

Hi

I'm sure this problem was fixed but I'm now using the latest version (Ultimate 2012 build 28 with Firefox rendering engine) and just noticed that it is back again - just as per the screen shot above!

Re: Default Browser message keeps appearing (Windows 7)

Yes, I agree with your logic but I can't find any evidence that this is actually the case. Avant definitely has all it's defaults set.

I've now unticked the box so that Avant doesn't check if it's the default browser every time it opens, and it looks as if this will work as a temporary workaround.

Re: Default Browser message keeps appearing (Windows 7)

Double clicking SetDefault.exe seems to have the same effect as clicking Yes on the message box.

However, if I close and re-open Avant several times, eventually the message box returns...

Re: AB Never remembers my favicons/website icons?

I use the 'IE Favourites as Bookmarks' option and have had problems with favicons since Avant 2011 came in (see http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=27735 ). Some are shown whereas other favourites are just shown with the standard globe favicon. I never had this problem up to and inclu...

Default Browser message keeps appearing (Windows 7)

On one of my pcs, I'm using the latest stable version of Avant (currently 2011 b33) with Windows 7. Although Avant is always set as the default browser, for the last few weeks (perhaps a couple of months now), whenever I open Avant, the 'Avant Browser is not currently the default web browser' messag...

Re: Gmail display problem returns...

Many thanks, that's sorted it. Out of curiosity, what made it revert to IE7 Compatibility Mode?

Gmail display problem returns...

Since updating from Avant build 23 to build 27, the Gmail display problems seem to have returned at this end. By this I am referring to the way in which the buttons at the top appear vertically rather than horizontally. Gmail appears as normal on IE9 on the same Vista Home Premium PC. The shot below...

Thanks, but actually I already backup my favourites as part of a weekly backup routine for all important files etc. Having lost them all once in the past, I don't want it to happen again!

Re: IE Favorites - Delete confirm box appears at back

The highlighted bookmark is the one I had selected to delete.

Why do you want me to change to using Avant bookmarks? I'm reporting a bug after setting IE Favorites as bookmarks (which I choose to do so I can access the same bookmarks when using Firefox and Chrome).

Re: IE Favorites - Delete confirm box appears at back

As far as I can recall - been using Avant for years - it's always done this. Here's a shot of what I'm talking about.

[confirmed]IE Favorites - Delete confirm box appears at back

I'm using Avant 2011 build 22 on a Vista Home PC. I set my IE Favorites as bookmarks and then access them via the Bookmarks toolbar which works really well. However, if you right click on a bookmark and select delete, the confirmatory box (Are you sure... etc) appears behind the bookmarks and is som...

Re: Can 'Find on This Page' button be provided please?

That would be fine - as long as there is a button (or optional button) to access it please!
