How do I bring my favorites bar, (not the bookmarks bar), up under the url to be shown?

Please clarify your question. What do you mean by 'favorites bar', and what do you mean by 'up up under the url to be shown'?

In Avant, the Bookmarks Bar is a horizontal toolbar in the upper area of the window that contains icons for the bookmarks that are in the bookmarks folder that is set as the Root of the Bookmarks Bar. The icons for all of the other bookmarks are not shown in the Bookmarks Bar.

What you're calling your 'favorites bar' may be the Sidebar (in build 110, it is the vertical bar on the right side of the window). The Sidebar can show Bookmarks, RSS, History, or Blocked URLs. If this is what you're referring to, it cannot be moved from its initial position on the right.

Also, are you using Avant Lite, which uses only the IE rendering engine or Avant Ultimate, which includes the Firefox, Chrome, and IE engines (this is shown in Help > About)? Please update your forum user profile (go to User Control Panel > Profile) to show whether it's Lite or Ultimate, and if you're using Avant Ultimate, enter the engine you've chosen as your default in Tools > Default Rendering Engine in the 'Default engine' field.

There is the favorites bar if he uses IE favorites as bookmarks.

Oops. :oops: My bad. I've got to make myself remember that not everyone uses the Firefox engine as much as I do. It's been so long since I did much with IE that I forgot all about the Favorites Bar.
