Go to yahoo, and select Games. Sign in. Then choose "Chess". When you get to the list of "rooms" in which to play, select any of the available ones and wait to see if it loads properly. If all is well, it will load in a few seconds, but in F12 mode it may take quite a while, and it may also hang. At...

Avant Full screen mode and Sun Java

Usually I use the F12 mode. I also play chess frequently on Yahoo, which opens a Java applet to list available games. Frequently this hangs when I am in F12 mode, but the same does not seem to happen when not in F12 mode.

Anyone else with a similar experience or who might test this?

What exactly do you mean "placed incorrectly"? The tabs using build 158 seem to go where I expect them from previous use of Avant.

1 - the newset build is now 155, so you need to upgrade again

2 - yes, zoom now works for all pages when you set it once, but you cannot zoom for individual pages now; a preference setting would be better to set a standard zoom and allowing for setting zoom factors on individual pages

Yahoo and attaching files

Recently I reported that Avant Ad Blocker prevented attaching files to Yahoo emails, in an earlier build. One could get to the attachment panel, Choose files, and try to attach, but it would take forever and nothing would actually be attached if one hadn't disabled the Ad Blocker in advance. The mos...

I don't know about Spyboit causing Avant to freeze, but I know that I cannot even get Spybot to do a complete scan without it freezing up itself, requiring a reboot

Avant Ad Blocker stops Yahoo "reply to" working co

Recently, in last couple of builds and upgrades, if I do "reply to" on a message at Yahoo email, the reply to box comes up empty, without the address of the person I am replying to or subject etc. - if the AD Blocker is on. Turn the AD blocker off and it works properly.

Anyone else?

Build 131 was not good - crappy would be a good adjective based on the number of problems. Upgrade to the most recent build - 153 and try again.

I have no problem with PDF files here

This topic has come up before - and I have posted about it in the discussion area recently - we really need a standard Zoom factor which one could set in the Avant Preferences and then the ability to Zoom individual pages as we like.

Avant ad blocker blocks entire good websites [RESOLVED]

I find that when the ad blocker is on I cannot get http://www.iht.com to complete loading, The International Herald Tribune. If I disable the ad blocker it loads. Same thing for http://www.globeandmail.com. Could someone confirm? Is it happening with other sites? I have not modified the ad blocker b...

Improvements to Zoom in bld 153

I notice that changing the Zoom factor changes the Zoom for all pages now, which is better than before but not necessarily the ideal. It would be better to be able to set a standard zoom factor in the preferences and then adjust individual pages as before. Then one could standardize on 125% for exam...

That problem did occur with 131 on Yahoo for example, but with 133 the problem on Yahoo was corrected, which indicates it should be correct everywhere. So perhaps DutchGemini should confirm that he really has 133 operational - at times one thinks one has installed a new build only to find the old on...

133 doesn't block ads on Yahoo as 126 and before did

Using build 133 I see more ads on the Yahoo mail and game pages than with earlier builds. I assume that some site or other is left out of the ad blacklist for 133, but was in for earlier builds. Has anyone else noticed this? Perhaps the blacklist, if that is the problem, can be changed back to earli...

Make sure that when you clsoe out Avant prior to reinstalling that you shut it down from the tray as well - if it is sitting there you won't get the new version installing over it
