Following up on the suggestion regarding the blocking of *yimg* files with Yahoo, I did some experimenting. I removed all references to these files from the Adblock black list - I then got all the ads of course, but the Reply function worked properly. I then added the line *us.a1.yimg.com/us.yimg.co...

Yahoo and replies to emails with Adblock on

If Adblock is on, it interferes with replying to Yahoo emails I find. Wtih Adblock on, if I hit "reply" an empty form will open, without the message I am replying to, although I have Yahoo set to include the message being replied to in any reply and frequently, but not always, without the address of...

Avant just quits frequently

Frequently Avant simply quits, disappears on me. I associate this with using Sun java to some extent as I play chess on Yahoo frequently, but I think it is also occurring at other times - but I haven't made an orderly study of the problem. Anyone else having a similar experience?

CTRL TAB tab switch

Just trying the CTRL TAB method to switch from tab to tab (as I saw it mentioned in another thread today). I find it works fine until it gets to the Chess window from Yahoo ( I frequently play Yahoo Chess) and then it won't swtich any further - perhaps it has to do with use of Java, or due to the Ch...

Perhaps I am mistaken ... does File --> Save save the actual page you are on, or the website (that page and all the "daughter" pages)?

download and save websites

I just saw a small article in the International Herald Tribune saying that Firefox has a new addin that allows one to download and save webpages, which isn't a major thing. But at times I have wanted to save entire websites and I use one of a number of programs to do this, but it would be handy if A...

The problem may be, as it has been form many people that the user has not actually closed out Avant before trying to install the new version. If Avant is minimized to the tray, you will think perhaps it is closed, but it isn't and the new version will not install.
