Cant stop autocomplete in address bar

Post by capnroy89 » Mon Dec 30, 2002 8:46 am

When I start up Avant, and I go to the address bar and type in "www.", it will try to autcomplete with a web address.  I've tried turning off all things related to autocomplete, but to no avail.  Can anyone help me out?

I'm having the same problem. Tried to disable autocomplete, didn't work. Even trying to clear typed addresses and recent pages doesn't work.

I'm stumped. ???

EDIT: Oh, btw. Versions of software.

Avant Browser 7.0.2.8
Internet Explorer 6.01 SP1
Windows XP Pro, SP1

Yes, I see it.  Disabling autocomplete does seem to work with other things like user names but not web addresses.  I cannot find a work around either.

This might need moved to the "Bugs" section.  Lets see what others have to say first.

Yes, I have noticed this "bug" also. Also, when I click "clear recent pages" it does nothing to remove the pages I have recently accessed. Is this a bug too? However, when I shut the browser down, everything seems to be clear when I open it up again. Btw I thought this was the "bugs" section--or am I missing something? :P

Hehe, Jay's picking on Benny all over the forum tonight! :) Actually, Benny did follow thru on what he said and moved this thread to the bugs section from the Help section. See here

Sorry, I didn't mean to pick on anyone. It did seem to be an inconsistency. The thread was already in the "bugs" section.  :-[

I wouldn't worry about it. Besides, it's fun to pick on the moderators!  ;D
But you're right, sometimes moving threads, or merging threads, or deleting posts creates some confusion

It is in the bug section now, it started out in the help section.  I moved it here a couple of weeks ago.

Picking on me?

Its ok, keeps me on my toes.

And everyone needs to  ;D once in a while.

Hey guys (kjnangre and benny) thanks for being so understanding. I guess I was having one of those days.

Bug still there in 7.0.3.2  :-/

Sorry bout being a pest, but it's a serious problem to me. I'd like to type in my own address, rather than having someone else do it for me.
