New Avant will not exit. Anyone else getting this? Whether I use the file>Exit or X out, Avant 11.5pb1 wil not shut down. Only shuts down with Task Manager .

I had that problem on the first beta.......which is why I am now back with v11, bld 45. When it becomes more stable I will download. Right now, from what I'm reading, the skins I use are not possible, among many other things, so I'll wait.

Good to hear. I have it on my laptop and desktop. Both with XP Pro. Same issue.

Created bug report thread for this issue.

What do you have set under Tools>Avant Browser Options...>Exiting & Tools>Avant Browser Options...>Clear Records?

It took a bit longer for it to exit (something like 5-7 seconds),Though.

I can't confirm the closing issue. I'm not having any problems with "Exit Directly" and everything cleared except Auto-Complete items.

When I open the side bar and click the Bin icon to clear history/searches, etc, the confirmation box appears right across the other side of the screen rather than central as was the case.. is this just me, or everyone?

Apart from this, looks great! :)

Yep, confirmed.

Looks remind me of Maxthon Beta.

Well, that may be the Avant 11.5 Eveready Version.

It just keeps on going and going and...

On a more serious note, have there been any changes / improvements in the 11.0 B46 memory management or resources used areas ?

Just a thought, as eventually if not sooner, users will be interested in that somewhat critical area.

The same position is used now for the confirmation box from Check for New Version. I prefer previous central position much more :(.

After installing the latest, apart from AB Options being unavailable(which i can put up with because my settings are same as previous)
the symbols in Bookmarks & AutoFill have changed to this....
Image

Anyone know what this symbol is & where it comes from & how to change it back?
On IE its the 'e' usual icon.

Thanks

It's the standard icon used for sites that don't have a favicon. In previous releases it could be changed by editing the skin and I assume it will still be possible when the new Skin Maker for AB 11.5 comes out.
