Re-Open window on start

Post by elsa » Mon Jun 14, 2010 8:21 am

Hi,

since new version 2010 build1 and build2, each time starting Avant, a Re-Open window appears.
How to deactivate it, but still opening directly all tabs closed when closing Avant like in the previous version ?
I did not find any option on it.

Regards

Does the reopen window always show the same items?
Please select: Tools >> Avant Browser Options... >> Exiting >> Always exit Avant Browser directly

Changing Avant options to "Always exit Avant Browser directly" works but all tabs are lost.
Back to "automatically save all opened tabs" works as well. But the question to reopen tabs is always asked, when we would like to have it automatic, as before.

I'd be interested in this as I've always had the reopen tabs screen on whatever proior version of AB used. Didn't know there was an automtically reopen tabs left open at last shut down facility.

I'm currently on 11.7, but is the Tools -> Avant Browser Options -> Exiting -> Display confirmation when opening saved pages selection gone in 2010. It sounds like this is checked.

2010 Build 2

Same problem. Always asks to reopen tabs. Used to be a option to ask or not, that option is gone and I see no way to make it not ask. Very annoying for a feature that has been present for years to disapear. :wtf:

Please please fix it!

lol


I did just install build 3. The reason I didnt know that it was out is when I went to help and check for new version on build 2, it said I was up to date.

I still dont see the option in the setting to make it open the saved tabs automaticly. It does save them without promting still, but asks when opening witch ones to reopen still. Am I missing the setting somewhere?

Uncheck Tools -> Avant Browser Options -> Exiting -> Display confirmation when opening saved pages. If you don't see that, verify Build 3 actually got installed at Help -> About Avant Browser...

That was fun. It took 3 installs to get build 3 to work. Donno why as it said it was installing build 3 each time.

1st - Reinstalled over top build 2 as per norm
2nd - Unintstalled build 2, then installed build 3
3rd - Uninstatalled build 2, rebooted, then installed build 3 - that finally worked.
Each time before it showed as build 2 still.

No idea why this happened, and I dont care. Only posting this in case anyone else has this problem, so they know how to fix it.

Thanks again hornakapopolis for all your help!

Keep in mind that v2010 reset many settings upon install and the default setting at Tools -> Avant Browser Options -> Tray Icon is Minimize to system tray, when click [Close] button. So, maybe Avant wasn't closed when you were installing?

Regardless, you have it running now.

First thing I do on a fresh windows install is install avant and set my settings... I hate the tray icon so thats gone right away. Avant looks very diffrent by the time I get the buttons where I want them and such things. :)

Before the second install I checked for running proeccess, there were none. I am fairly computer literate and fix most problems on my own. The reason it took 3 installs baffles me. Never had to restart to fix a avant problem before. I have had to uninstall but thats it.

No worries though. Could spend far more time than its worth trying to discover why. Its just not worth it. Most important is, its fixed and works now!

<3 Avant and the comunity fourms here are always very freindly and helpful! Many other programs could benafit from such a community as this.
