AB 9.02 build 33..AvantFind again? :(

Post by crom » Sun Jun 27, 2004 9:31 pm

I installed the new b33 (1.022KB, 28th June silent upgrade), typed in a page which doesn't exist...and that's what I get...

(ok, this is not properly a bug..but in my mind, it IS indeed!

If I die I have to go before Crom and he will ask me:
"What is the rule of Steel?"
And if I don't know it, he will cast me out of Valhalla and laugh at me!
That's Crom, strong on his mountain..

I don't think this is AvantFind and I am assuming it has nothing to do with Avant. What address did you type into the address bar?

can't you see that? it's written in the image I posted..
anyway, I tried with lots of other strings...I noticed that because I tried to call forums.mozillazine.org which is currently down..

so, it IS AvantFind, as the links on that page refer to it.

All I get is a "no page to display" page. Where on that page does it refer to AvantFind? I don't see it! Give us the link in case I'm entering it wrong--although I did it 4 times.

Sara :?

Oh ok. It was cut off before and I thought it took you to "www.ireallydontexist.com" not that that is what you typed in to get to AvantFind.

Same here Crom, did you clean your bellybutton? Maybe it's a hold over from an older install; this can happen if you install over prev. versions.

Ok, just downloaded the 033 version and reinstalled. Now I am kind of getting the same thing. Except, I only get the html not the actual page. Don't know why that is.

All I get is a normal "page not found" page... no Avantfind. I think you guys have a corrupted installation from previous versions... clean/wipe/reinstall.

Luck!

Nope, mine was fine, then I redownloaded and now I get this. I then reinstalled the older 033 and everything is fine again.

How do you know the difference from your normal state? :wink:
I wish Anderson would create a Silent Update Advisory to explain why, what, & when. No updating for me thank-you.

Earlier versions can be found at;

http://avant.it-mate.co.uk/default.asp?c=Download

Direct link to 033: http://avant.it-mate.co.uk/dl/absetup9_02_033.exe

As for spyware, although avantfind was brought back for whatever reason, I highly doubt any spyware was added :)

thanks for the links

my point about the spyware is that we simply don't know...if anderson is willing to silently sneak in one intrusion it's quite possible he would sneak in another...i view avantfind as bordering on spyware...redirects to a page other than what i typed in are intrusive and border on spyware
