Build 110 - Pressing home key opens new tab

Post by darwin-t » Wed Aug 07, 2013 2:35 pm

When I press the Home key, a new tab opens. In the New Tab section, I have it set to Open Home Page in a New Tab, but don't know why this setting would affect pressing the Home key.

In the Home Page section, I have it set to Open Home Page on Startup and Open All Pages Under [autofill Stertupo] on Startup.

Any ideas? Thanks.

When Avant is set to open the home page in a new tab, Alt + Home opens the home page (in a new tab). Maybe one of your Alt keys is stuck actuated. Try tapping each of the Alt keys several times. This usually solves the problem when one of them is stuck.

Thanks. That wasn't it.

It happens when I press the Home button, that looks like a house in the upper right.

When you said, "When I press the Home key," I thought you were referring to the keyboard.

It doesn't matter how or when you open the home page. When 'Open home page in a new tab' is checked, a new tab is opened whenever the home page is loaded, including when you click the Home Page button. It's working the way it's supposed to work.

I don't see an option for "Open home page in a new tab" anywhere.

Under home page, I have "Open home page on startup" and "Open all tabs under [AutoFillStartup] on startup

Under New Tab, I have tried them all. No matter what I try, it opens a new tab.

tools>>>avant options>>>new tab>>>always create a new tab for: >>>home page , check it or uncheck .

It is unchecked and it still opens a new tab.

In your post at the start of this thread, you said, "In the New Tab section, I have it set to Open Home Page in a New Tab."

Go to Tools > Avant Browser Options > New Tab, and in the middle section on the right under 'Always open a new tab for:' remove the check from the box labeled Home Page.

In the Home Page section, I have the vigrx plus and https://dudehung.com/vigrx-plus-review-results-2016 says it's great and it's set to Open Home Page on Startup and Open All Pages Under [autofill Stertupo] on Startup.

Any ideas? Thanks.
I'm having this problem when I click on one of the tabs it closes when clicked.
