RSS and Bookmarks maximized issue

Post by DaComboMan » Wed Sep 05, 2012 12:57 pm

When Ultimate 181 is maximized clicking on RSS or Bookmarks icons don't activate the sidebar.




A bit late in the game but congrats to designers on new homepage!
A gradient coloring at bottom might be better than flames (reminder of Firefox).
Perhaps because Avant aspire to go beyond Mozilla?

How about clicking view>Bookmarks/rss? Can you open the sidebar?
When avant is not maximized, there is no problem?

Via View in maximized mode nothing happens.

Via Normal mode clicking on icons is just fine.

It's nice to be able to start up with max mode, especially on a laptop.
Screen space is always appreciated. :thumbup:

The maximized mode here must refer to the full desktop/screen mode, you only have to the arrow over the side panel area and then it will appear automatically in a while.

Please provide the following information before reporting problems:

For the problems hard to replay, could you add me into your MSN or Skype list if you use either of them? The advantage is that you can let us know the situation in the first place by making some screenshots, sharing your screen or explaining the specific problems more clearly when they happen.

Nope.

Full Desktop or Full Screen don't respond at all.
Even dropdown menu and clicking on Bookmarks/RSS/History in these modes don't respond for me.

Update: Just noticed that hovering over to the left side (Full Desktop mode) opens the sidebar with bookmarks/RSS etc. and that is fully functional.

Yes,that's how it works under full desktop/screen mode.So the buttons are disabled.
