Re: address completion no longer working

I don't know, but it has been like this for some time: actually I seem to have read it somewhere, but for sure I tested and each time I cleared my temporary files autocomplete did not work since the "database" of known addresses was empty.

Re: address completion no longer working

No, I mean "Temporary Internet Files"... I forgot about "typed addresses", I believe the following three should NOT be cleared (in Avant or IE, of course) to have autocomplete to work; at least mine is configured as such and it works. - typed addresses - history of visited web sites - temporary inte...

Re: address completion no longer working

Cannot confirm using IE7 and Avant 11.5.12, without cache clearing. I have a feeling, though, that not only history but the cache also should be "filled" for autocomplete to work, from some tests and/or something I read some time ago - but I may be wrong. Does autocomplete work in IE under the same ...

Re: FLASH PROBLEMS...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You need administrative privileges to install Flash under 2K/2K3/XP, though the control works afterwards also with a limited user. Finally, you may try to open up completely Avant, disabling the popup and ad blocker, just in case you entered something in the blocker that somehow succeeds in preventi...

Re: FLASH PROBLEMS...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flash is not an IE plugin (BHO), so those options shouldn't affect its working; the warning is simply that, there may be plugins that cannot work with Avant, causing problems and/or program crashes. What do you mean by "result; negative"? installation didn't succeed? what did it happen on the Flash ...

You may try to reinstall Flash (http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download ... omoid=BIOW) to see if it helps.

Uncheck Tools|Disable ActiveX Controls if it's checked... also verify Tools|Disable Flash Animations is unchecked.

Re: FLASH PROBLEMS...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you somehow disabled ActiveX controls? Flash runs as an ActiveX, so disabling them also disallows Flash content.

I've been running Avant exclusively renamed since it ever appeared it made some sense, without any single problem... I didn't even know :oops: there were some with the RSS reader since I don't use it, I much prefer a reader outside of the browser, placed unobtrusively in a corner, calling up the bro...

Re: frmClearActiveX appears when closing all windows

YzShadow is an applet that creates shadows under windows for a 3d look, so to disable it you need to close it, it's neither in Avant nor in Windows.

Moreover, somebody pointed YzShadow out elsewhere for another problem with Avant, but at least in my case it isn't causing neither.

Re: 11.5 border around toolbars GUI bug

Having been with us since beta (and up to the current "silent 11a"), this bug should be moved to "confirmed bugs", shouldn't it? bigC, Sara, ADukes and myself at least have noticed it (I'm sure others also do but don't notice it, since it's very "skin-dependent")... EDIT: I checked the "confirmation...

Re: Closing browser

dennisf878, did you read the last three posts before yours? they contain the same question, explanation and solution as you're looking for... Avant is (and has always been) closeable by the File|Close menu and the "X" on the titlebar.

Re: selected tab color

Yes, indeed, unfortunately it's always been like this and it hasn't changed in the current version, though it was sometimes said that it would have been much more skinnable than before :(

Re: frmClearActiveX windows appears on close all tabs

Sorry, but I've been running YzShadow for a lot of time, without a single problem traceable to it (neither with apps nor with the last 4 releases of Visual Studio and/or other developer tools...); I'm also definitely not experiencing this problem with Avant. Probably that's because I don't use Firef...
