Old Version 11.7 b46SR and IE9

Post by Arandora » Wed Feb 01, 2012 4:19 pm

I'm still using the old version 11.7 b46SR (as periodically coming to this forum shows continuing problems with latest version that I just don't want to face) with IE 8 on my PC with Vista Home Premium and on my laptop with Win7 Home Premium 64 bit.
I'm thinking of upgrading IE8 to IE9 on my laptop. Will this present me with compatibilty problems with AB Old Version?

This is all i know you cannot use IE 9 with XP it will only go to IE 8 . I would guess that IE 9 will work VISTA AND WINDOWS 7 being 32 bit and 64 bit.Just can't answer your question.This part of my reply i am certain This is all i know you cannot use IE 9 with XP it will only go to IE 8 . :)

I'm afraid 11.7.46 doesn't completely work with ie9.We ever released a test version v2010 build 122 which almost worked with ie9.

IE9 is not completely compatible with the old versions. Why not updating to the latest version?
I like the firefox rendering engine in Avant which runs fast and stable in my win7 64 bit.
Some users have the gray page problem in the new version, but this problem rarely happen to me.
I'm satisfied with the new versions so far.

You misunderstood. I'm not having any problem with Avant 11.7 etc. and the version of IE that came built into Windows 7, which is described as just 64 bit--no number, I'm assuming it's at least a version of IE 9. I have little interest on mutiple engines, as Avant has been my browser for 10 years and as Scotty said in Star Trek The Movie (and I'm going from memory here) " the more you over take (overhaul?) her the more problems you'll have with her".

I found it! "Aye sir, the more they overtech the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain." Sort of what I said......

To be honest, when I periodically return to this Forum and read the continuing problems being experienced with even the latest version of AB, I'm "afraid" of upgrading. Having been an AB user since I first started browsing I am comfortable with the current old version I am using and don't want to upgrade only to find I am thrown out of my comfort zone.
The reason I started this thread is because IE9 was becoming increasingly pushed with Windows updates. Today's Microsoft Notification says that "If you have automatic updating turned on and are not using the latest version of Internet Explorer, Windows Update will automatically upgrade you this month. Learn more, including how you can opt out."
So, I have downloaded the IE9 Installer Blocker so that I can control the installation of IE9 after further consideration of whether to upgrade AB. I feel a bit like King Canute failing to hold back the tide of change! :wall:

Hi! I guess I'm about to find out what happens when od mets new. I found out recently that My new Win 7 computer came loaded with IE 9--wrong! It was a 84 bit version of IE 8. Last night's uploads took me to 9--I checked after reading your post. I'll be interested to see what issues I have now. I'll keep you posted.

BTW--Welcome back! Some of us were getting worried.......

Hi Sara,
I look forward to reading how you get on with Old AB and New IE and thanks for the Welcome Back. :wave:
I've been pre-occupied with (my wife's) health issues which not only demand my time, which I can afford but an efficient and effective browsing ability,which I can't afford to do without. Hence my preference at this time to stay with what I've got.
If I can be assured of a fairly seamless transfer to New AB & New IE in due course when I have more time to deal with any complications.
This will be a dual move, though, as I would want to upgrade on both my laptop, running Win 7 64 bit, and my PC, running Vista Home Premium 32 bit and for which I am now starting to get optional downloads of Vista IE9 so it isn't going to be too long before they become included in automatic downloads too.

Just like the users who like using firefox3, as the update of firefox add-ons,they have no choice but to update.

Sara, Sara, where are though Sara?
How is your plumbing? I see you are running New AB but still with IE8? Why not IE9 now and how do you now rate AB 2012 Build181 Lite?

I saw in your earlier post that you were afraid of updating to the newest version of Avant because of reading all the problems some people were having. To tell you the truth, the majority of those problems are brought on by the people themselves by not reading the docs and/or not looking at their preferences.
You can install the newest version of Avant and still keep your old version, just install the new version to a different folder. That way you can check out all the new features and make sure everything works before getting rid of your older version. If for some reason you don't like it, you can just un-install the new version and continue on with the older version.
What's really nice with the tri-core Avant is when you come across a web page that's specifically written for FireFox or Chrome, you will now have the option to switch on-the-fly to see the page properly. There's a whole lot of other niceties, you just have to take it for a test drive. :wink:

Tinman,
Thank you very much. I think I will do exactly as you suggest - after carefully reading the docs! :wink:
Does it work better with IE8 (which I still have installed) or IE9?

Following on from above, I experienced a lot of problems with my old version of AB (11.7 b46 with IE8) whilst away in our Winter retreat in Thailand so I was prepared when we came home recently to bite the bullet and upgrade to the latest AB with either IE9 or IE10. I had successfully stopped IE9 being installed on my laptop through Windows Updates on my laptop but the other day Windows Automatic Updates installed IE10 on my laptop and to my surprise most of the issues (pages sticking, pages not loading properly, AB crashes, even log in problems with Facebook) disappeared and AB was back to the speedy browser I had always loved and with whose features I was perfectly comfortable.
So, I went ahead and installed IE10 on my desktop also with the same success so far with one exception.
I am currently looking to book flights for our return back to Thailand in November and tracking prices on two airline websites, one of which is Emirates.com. Prior to the installation of IE10 whenever I loaded the Flight search page at http://fly4.emirates.com/CAB/IBE/Search ... ility.aspx it always stuck at "(7 item(s) remaining) Waiting for http://fly4.emirates.com/CAB/IBE/Search ... ility.aspx... This then prevents me going to the results page after completing the search boxes as the button is not displayed. This happened with AB and IE8 on both laptop and PC and I had to use Firefox where there was no problem.
After installing IE10 on my laptop, the full page loaded in both AB and IE10 but on my desktop it would still not complete in AB whilst it did in IE10.
If anyone is still following this thread have you any ideas for correcting this anomaly?
Thanks in anticipation.

Comparing the AB settings on my PC and my laptop, which were supposed to be identical, I found that Ad Blocker was Enabled on my PC but Disabled on my laptop which explains the anomoly.
Anyway, there are no "side effects" so far of old AB and new IE and having just upgraded my internet service to fibre I am experiencing my best browsing experience ever!!! :-)
