This one's OK now.
I really prefer the 'other buttons' to be coloured as before but if they are to stay black could they be bigger, i.e. the same size as they were before; they are quite small compared with the 'standard' buttons.
Thanks.

BTW can someone explain the 'restore' button in 'other buttons', it seems to just tile the current page.

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

This also happened on alpha 1.

Also just noticed that Favourites is now Favorites !!

ABMan,
What do you mean by "Large Font"?
Also just noticed that Favourites is now Favorites !!
You're probably using "English (UK)" as a language

Display properties, Appearance, Font Size-Large

I hadn't changed anything but I've now changed it to UK from US.

EDIT: The Interface Language reverts back to US after AB closedown and startup having been set to UK. I.E. it doesn't retain the setting.

Just an FYI, with the "u" is the UK spelling, without it is the US spelling ;)

I just wanted to add that the things i reported in Beta 2 thread are still the same.

Another very important hing to add:

when opening a website that uses a flash thingy as advertisment for example, the selected input (for example "adresse") looses focus. Thats really annoying and would be very good to fix.

For better understanding an example:

1) browse to http://www.ghome.de
2) while loading open new tab (strg+n)
3) type what ever adresse you want

while typing you will see your cursor loosing focus.

I think you meant to say "the correct" spelling.

Popup Blocking Request

Post by Mastertech » Sat May 28, 2005 11:52 pm

1. Turning Compact View off by default is much better.
2. I agree that I prefered the colored icon in the top right, maybe make this an option as well?
3. Mouse Gestures Look Fine Here, it has to be the font your using.

Request:
Any way to block the popup on this page:

Thanks and good work as usual.

Just installed. I like having the menu bar on the Title bar. This allows me to only have one tool bar and the tab bar showing to save room.
The only other improvement, in my opinion, would be have the Menu bar on the left the Title bar to the right of the Menu bar.

FavIcons are always requested through Ie proxy settings connection, instead of using AB specific proxy settings when required. All other requests for web pages respect the AB proxy settings, except for requests for the FavIcon.

** This is a security vulnerability in AB and would be very easy to fix if Anderson so wishes **

i just wonder why the symbol of 'previous window is 'X' insted of '<', could anderson restore to '<', so do the 'next window' i think '>' is better to understand :roll:

Still very sad to see that you took away the best mouse gesture..

Why did you take it away?

I'm not using any special font, I'm using the default one.

Just tried large and largest font,Everything is fine

Maybe it's somehow related to StyleXP?

But I'm using StyleXP and everything just fine for me
