Re: Popup Blocker & Roboform

I've been using RoboForms for years and now when RF calls for a web page load, Avant blocks the called pages.

I've even added the pages to the Ad Blocker's EXCEPTIONS LIST and in the PopUp Blocker.

What else can a user do to stop this from happening?

Re: bookmarks bar

After updating IE7 to IE8, Avant would not show the LINKS BAR. IE had renamed the LINKS folder to FAVORITES and Avant did not recognize the folder as the folder to display. I tried to RIGHT CLICK the folder and set it as the ROOT FOLDER, but there wasn't any option available. What ended up working w...

Re: Rocky Mountain Oysters

I've ate them at a bar in Middletown, IN. They were smashed and breaded, then deep fried like a breaded tenderloin. You wouldn't know the difference until told. Especially after a few cold drafts.

Re: avant browser hot fix?

After installing on a fourth machine, it too has the warning each time Avant is started. So, the results are 2 machines without a warning, 2 machines with a warning, all installed from the same file on my hard disk. Has anyone determined what 'hotfix' Avant needs to have installed before it will not...

Re: avant browser hot fix?

I can confirm this problem with the 'hotfix' message. I have installed Avant 11.6 build 11 on three PCs from the exact same downloaded file stored on my PCs and the problem only shows up on one of the three. I have checked, uncheck, applied and so forth the MISCELLANEOUS selections that should take ...

Re: Problems With Avant Closing...And Not Closing

Try changing your settings concerning the cleanup of temporary files and such.
Turn off all of the cleaning functions and see if Avant closes immediately.

Re: RSS feed: Sorting by Date doesn't work

I'm sure hoping that the RSS feed section works better, it seems to right now. I'm worried by one post that states it won't remove older posts once the limit is reached. I could see where this date problem might cause issues with that function. At least this version is updating the feed. [side topic...

Re: RSS feed: Sorting by Date doesn't work

No, they are not. I'm thinking Adukes is probably right about the date settings on the PCs being different and causing the problem. The USA uses a funky month first, then day, then year setting that might cause the problem. I wonder if changing the setting on our PCs would cause the sorting to work ...

Actually, they are NOT sorted by date.
The dates are all the same, they are sorted by time.

Avant 11.6 build 8 Skin Selection not retained

In Avant 11.6 build 8 the skin selected won't retain the selection when Avant is closed and reopened. I tried several default skins and then tried to switch back to Aluminum and Avant won't retain the selected skin. I also tried selecting a skin, then clicking TOOLS, AVANT OPTIONS and clicking APPLY...

I'm new to RSS feeds and would like to see how they work. So anyways, can someone explain to me what RSS is supposed to be and how I can get it to work? I found some RSS feeds on the internet, I just want to get them to "work", whatever that means. Vaudeville And as for Avant being a reader... yes,...

Re: RSS History

It's been a long, long time since anything was done for the RSS Feed section of Avant, so don't hold your breath. I've complained about the date/time sorting for over a year.
