Re: Avant freezes or non responsive on most webpages since 46

What I find frustrating is that after months of complaining there is no relevant response to this problem here at the forum from Anderson or any other Avant supporting team. I appreciate the fact that this is a freeware program and no one has any obligation to solve any problem. Though there is a hu...

Re: Avant freezes or non responsive on most webpages since 46

Same here. Avant was always a big CPU consumer. But since built 46 it has become impossible to use. I reverted to built 43.

If I am to point only one new feature version 12 should include I must say better resources handling. That's all.

How to manually add a new entry in the Autofill menu

I want to add a new entry in the Autofill menu but not through the pop-up menu that asks you to save entries once you are logged in to a site. This site I want to add does not fire up (for some reason) the regular pop up menu for saving the details. So I want to add it manually. Is it possible? Thanks

Ctrl+F doesnt work with Google toolbar

In the latest versions, you cannot perform a search if the Google toolbar plug-in is enabled. the search cannot be launched neither through Ctrl+F nor through Edit-->Find on this Page. The solution to restore the default settings suggested previously solves the problem by removing the Google toolbar...

Re: "Find on this page" does not work

I have the same annoying problem: Neither "find on this page" nor Ctrl+f work at all.

I use Win Xp and IE7.

Re: autofill [roblem with two mail accounts in the same server

No. In the autofill menu the 2 entries are listed. Each has the correct user and pass. But, whatever autofill I use Avant uses only one (the same one all the time).

I have stored 2 autofill entries but it doesn't matter which one I try to use autofill always activates only the same one. Is there a problem using two autofill entries to the sa...

Typing "S" in Google toolbar switches tabs!

Suddenly, I am encountering a peculiar problem. Whenever I type the letter 'S' in Google Toolbar (i.e. in the browser itself and not in Google sites), Avant switches to another tab. The current tab is not closed but another tab becomes active. This happens whether I type the letter 'S' alone or as a...

Re: Avant Exodus

Sadly, I am now using Avant only for simple browsing (news etc.). For all other purposes I have, reluctantly, switched to FireFox.

I do wish Avant will go back to its heydays.

What is the little box with the arrow in the links bar?

In the new versions there are Little boxes with arrows in the top left corner of all the favorites. It is most noticeable in the links bar.

What are they for? I cant notice any difference when clicking those arrows from clicking the name of the link itself!

Re: Make system buttons movable

I for one don't use 11.5 just because of the unmovable buttons. So, waiting for a new big release means staying for more time with v. 11 built 46 which has its flaws (CPU usage). If there would be a prediction when this issue is going to be solved it would be great. Let me just say that I DO appreci...

Re: Make system buttons movable

I have been reading the requests for more than a year now, and i didn't see any request for a change of the close icon from the upper right corner. So why change it?
For me its a big problem and I have tried to adjust to the new Avant without success.
Please, allow the option to change the location.

Can I open 2 Avant sessions?

Is there a way to open 2 Avant programs simultaneously?
I mean a second Avant window where i can use different tabs.

This is possible with a lot of programs by starting the same program twice but double clicking Avant`s icon the second time do not bring up another Avant session.
