Going back... Goes Blank

Post by arcman » Fri May 16, 2014 3:24 pm

Here's another odd thing that's been going on for a while.

Often after visiting a Google linked website, when using the back button in Avant, it skips back two pages to a blank Google page instead of the previous search results page. I can't forward click but have to hit the back button again and then hit the forward button to get back to the search results page. Hopefully I made sense of this.

This happens a lot and on more than one computer in the house.

Help?
Thanks.

This problem had been recorded here: http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic ... 21&t=33611
Which engne do you use when the problem happens? I can confirm it under chrome engine.

I'm using the Firefox engine.

Also, removing the IE tab 2 didn't fix the locking browser for long. I now disabled the last add-on, WordWeb, and we'll see if that stops the locking.

Every once in a while the whole thing blows up and Avant resets to default preferences. Any way to find the prefs file so I can save it to a different location so I don't have to change everything back when it crashes?

You can use Tools>Backup/restore profiles to backup your profiles. Once it lost, choose a backup and click Restore button.
Config settings are stored in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\.default folder, you can also backup the three conf files in this that folder.
