Error opening new version

Post by MRyder » Mon May 28, 2012 9:48 am

I have just installed the newest version of avant, which came up telling me to install it today.

However when I click to open it, or type in a URL and search it, I just get a blank white screen and this message comes up:

Any help? thanks

This is a fairly common Firefox problem. Open the file application.ini in the gecko folder of your Avant installation (for example, C:\Program Files\Avant\gecko) with a text editor like notepad. The contents of the file will look something like this:

[App]
Vendor=Mozilla
Name=Firefox
Version=12.0
BuildID=20120521181842
ID={ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}
[Gecko]
MinVersion=12.0
MaxVersion=12.0
[XRE]
EnableProfileMigrator=1
EnableExtensionManager=1
[Crash Reporter]
ServerURL=https://crash-reports.mozilla.com/submi ... 0521181842


In the [App] section, change 'Version=11.0' to 'Version=12.0' and save the file, and you'll be good to go.

[Gecko]
MinVersion=12.0
MaxVersion=12.0
