Attached are two versions of a web page. The second (with error) is as it comes up. The first (correct) is after a refresh. This never happened before build 2. Also this is the only page (for me) which has this problem.

It happens every time. The e-mail which leads to this comes daily.

Further clarification. The sequence is as follows: open e-mail, click on link - opens item with error, refresh and error goes away.

For test purposes I should send you a copy of the original e-mail. Advice needed on procedure.

I can forward the e-mail, but I need your e-mail address.

I found a second situation. The common thread is: start with an e-mail. Open a link from the e-mail. The page that is opened is then changed after a refresh.

Further study. It seems to be browser dependent. Firefox alone - no bug. IE9 alone - bug appears.

I tried Avant with different rendering engines, but switching was a problem for the e-mail.

I strongly suspect that it is due to an incompatibility between gmail and IE9. When I open gmail I get a message indicating that it no longer supports the version of IE (IE9, my default Avant rendering engine) that I am using.

I think it's your IE9 browser that has problem. I open gmail with IE9 engine and get the same "no longer support" message, but when I open the link you gave me from gmail, it opens normally.

I think the problem is a little more subtle. The link I gave you is after I linked from the e-mail. That will open properly. The error occurs only when it is opened directly from the e-mail link. I've noticed it in several other cases, where opening from the link gets a messed up version, but refresh corrects it.

In any case, it certainly is not an Avant bug.

Strange occurrence. As a result of some minor mishap (which I don't fully understand) all the settings that I made using Tools (homepage, skins, default rendering, etc.) were set to Avant default values. After I restored them to my settings, I found that the bug, described above, went away. I have no clue as to what changed.

This happens sometimes. Some bugs just go away itself without any change.
