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;
Optional: Firewall; Graphics Card

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.

1) Changes:

1 There are three engines(gecko+trident+webkit) in Avant browser 2012 now

You can change the rendering mode (engine) for all the new pages in Tools>Default rendering mode

Or change the rendering mode for current page via clicking the drop down list of the green arrow besides address bar:

2 The location of IE toolbars changed

The new lotion is here:Tools>Internet explorer options.
For example: Roboform and google toolbar

3 The stored location of favicons/history changed

We store favicons/history in Temp folder in 2011 versions ; in 2012 version we changed it to Avant profiles-> Favicons.dat/sites.dat So, the settings about history in Internet Options & firefox options lose efficacy.

2) Some tips

1 IE toolbars are only available under IE rendering mode (Firefox add-ons are only available under firefox rendering mode)

2 About downlader: If you disabled Avant Browser downloader (Tools>Downloads>Options>uncheck Take over browser’s file download) Under firefox rendering mode, it will pop up firefox downloader; under IE rendering mode, it will pop up IE downloader.

3 After installing the new version, some settings that comes from 2011 versions or before may lost, please reset them.

4 After installing the new version, the old bookmarks/autofills/rss etc. are still avaliable.
