"extra startup pages" no longer open automatically

Post by kpl » Wed Sep 21, 2016 6:10 pm

Since installing the latest version of ultimate my "extra startup pages" no longer open automatically when Avant is started up. The is a check box for "open extra home pages on startup" in the options. Did something get unchecked somewhere else?

Avant browser options>Exit, do you set to save all opened tabs or exit directly when close Avant?
If you set to save all opened tabs, then check the option "Display confirmation when openning saved pages"

xiaobing, are you saying that the only way to get Extra Homepages/Start Up pages to work is to always save your opened pages when you exit?

Why are those two things connected?

No, the Extra Homepages also works if you set to exit Avant diretly.

Two ways to make the extra home page works:
1 Set to exit Avant browser directly.
2 Save all opened pages and display the confirmation window.

If you set to save all opened tabs when exit but not display the confimation window when start Avant, then the extra home page will not open.
I have recorded this problem.

I tried your settings and my extra startup pages still do not open on startup.

Under Exiting I have checked "always exit directly" and everything else below that.

I always run Avant in private mode, but oddly enough I noticed that when I accidentally opened Avant in regular mode all my statup pages open. Hope that helps with a solution.

sure, but it would be nice if they fix it so that they open in private mode again.
