Please can this be changed for AB 10.1 so that AB proxy setting is used to download FavIcons, instead of always using IE proxy settings.

This is a security vulnerability, although a workaround is to set up IE proxy settings, although this is not as convenient.
That seem to me as a bug
But not security vulnerability

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.

A compromise of your privacy is a security vulnerability IMO.

Privacy is compromised because your real IP (instead of proxy IP) can be tracked when FavIcon is requested.

I noticed with the tabs that it is indeed red and when you have your mouse over the tab it turns blue.

Now to fit the color scheme of avant I would make it the opposite where the tab text colors are blue and turn red when the mouse is over the tab.

The reason for this suggestion is that the logo is blue and everthing would match perfect. Or, if possible, make it a option that you can change yourself to whatever colors you want.

Just my 2 cents :wink:

Actually, red was the original color... but enough about that.

It is my guess that it will somehow be customizable whether through AB itself of AB Skins Factory. I think both would be best because the skin author can assign a color to use with their skin that looks best, but the user can override it if they so choose.

Has anyone noticed that the auto-fill-in seems to be working a lot better? I haven't changed any settings, but I just realized it's been working since this build--even over a couple of sessions.

Sara :D

No one knows. It will be released when it's ready.

The Menu Bar cannot be turned off in 10.1. I think one could do that in 10.0 167. Or am I mistaken?

There was never a direct option in the View menu. You could go into View -> Customize Buttons -> Menu Bar and turn them all off, though.

Just noticed the mouse gesture option screen is all misaligned; I am using 1024x768 resolution with large size DPI and large fonts.
