AB Never remembers my favions/website icons?

Post by pme » Tue Oct 04, 2011 9:47 pm

Favicons! AB now seems to also call them "website icons" in the new options menu, and give you the choice to delete them on closing. I 've put up with no favicons for at least two years now, thinking it was the result of my over zealous iolo system mechinc pro clearing out the "clutter" ie the temp folder.
Can anyone explain how to keep the these "website icons" so they show on my groups bookmarks bar, and in the bookmarks menu itself?
I like them and they make it easier to find sites in the miriad of bookmark menus I have.

The favicons will stay there if you don't clear Temp files. It may be better if Avant can store favicons in a different location. :think:

I use the 'IE Favourites as Bookmarks' option and have had problems with favicons since Avant 2011 came in (see http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic ... 18&t=27735). Some are shown whereas other favourites are just shown with the standard globe favicon. I never had this problem up to and including Avant Browser 11.7 Build 46 and reinstalling that version used to restore the favicons (although I must confess I haven't tried doing that for some time).

However, I can also access my favourites via Firefox using the PlainOldFavorites (v1.2) add-on and the favicons show perfectly there.

So why don't they show correctly in Avant?

Victor Delta, I suggest you use Avant Browser 2012. A different way to save favicons(you'll see the file favicons.dat in the profiles folder). Less chance of losing them. However for the first time install avant browser 2012 all favicons have to be redownloaded.

Please provide the following information before reporting problems:
Avant Version; System(also point out it is a 32 or 64-bit OS);IE; Memory Size; CPU Speed;

For the problems hard to replay, could you add me into your MSN or Skype list if you use either of them? The advantage is that you can let us know the situation in the first place by making some screenshots, sharing your screen or explaining the specific problems more clearly when they happen.
