Need to reimport favorites from IE

Post by mbrazil » Thu Feb 16, 2006 12:36 am

Every once in awhile, Avant Browser loses all my customization settings, and I have to reconfigure the menu and all the toolbars. I've seen this happen on three different computers. The last time it happened on this computer, the favorites list was empty. How can I force Avant to reimport the favorites from IE?

Avant uses the same folder as IE to store the favorites. There is no need to import them when they will be going from place "X" to the same place "X".

Your settings are saved in a file in this location (for XP):

C:\Documents and Settings\your username\Application Data\Avant Browser

Could anything be erasing this file?
