I too am getting this with 10.030. I hadn't been getting any freezing with any of the betas. I prefered beta 28, it was just faster and didn't freeze. Anyone know where I can find it?

Win XP Pro
Avast AV
No Software Firewall

I actually have the same problem, and I traced it down to when I open a group of web comics sites at the same time, and javascript is enabled (by default). I think I know which site is causing the issue, but it works fine with scripts if I opened the site by itself. Only happens when I click "Open all Links in this Group".

here's the section of "application data\avant browser\group.dat" file in my profile directory that defines the group of sites in question...

I'm pretty sure it's the inktank.com site that causes the crash for me. If anyone can reproduce this, that's be a start.

Same problem here. If I close and restart AB, it often succeeds without freezing.

FWIW, here's my links:

I have the same problem after I updated from version 9 to 10.

Usually it crashes 2-3 times a day. Suddenly if I want to get back to my browser it just hangs. I can't maximize it - only close it. Very annoying.

I imported your links and came up with the same crash, so IMO it's a conflict with a javascript function out there trying to do some popup or something

I've had this problem too, but on different sites, and sometimes I can reload the culprit site fine. I thought at first maybe it was certain sites with popups and javascript that was being loaded up along with other websites that was the problem...which I guess could still be the problem. But not too long ago I loaded a website that had neither, and it froze on me. I reloaded the page again after restarting avant and it worked fine. I think the problem might have been that I tried scrolling the page using th mouse wheel the first time I loaded the page, before it was finished loading. I'm not sure how the code is setup, but it might be the case that the program has the ability to try to do too much at once that might be causing the problem. At least this is what the problem sounds like to me, since I can do anything fine if I do it one step at a time, it's when I request a bunch at once from the program that it usually locks up.

The only site I seem to have problems with is suprnova.org. I believe it has to do with the pop-ups on that site because disabling the pop-up blocker seems to fix the problem.
