Avant 2012 Requests

Post by superfly86 » Tue Sep 20, 2011 10:23 am

After conversation with jinmin i've thought about few requests:
- Changing positions of buttons and menu bar (view/customize buttons) there should be arrows to change position of menus and buttons
- Add customization of status bar - adding removing buttons - make it firefox way for example there is no zooming button on status bar which was in orca, i want to enable it again
- adblock/popup block with subscription lists, updates etc.
- moving whole data from orca to avant
- support for mini themes or themes from firefox (if we download themes addons from firefox that will be applied in avant

Add Avant Configure Wizard - something that will show after 1st start and give us possibility to quickly configure basic aspects like behaviour of tabs and default search engine

- add language change for firefox engine - in order to have plugins description in native language etc.
- add firefox dictionary downloader from menu
- autoupdate for avant browser (like in chrome/firefox)
- option to update firefox engine
- Add Avant Addon - external page looking like firefox which give us possibilty to download and see new skins etc.

- fix problem with open about:config Find general.useragent.locale and changing language with avant language change

here are few links which may help

- support for icon packs

- in mozilla firefox options - possibility to show actually installed dictionaries and language packs
- Add to mozilla options link for dictionary download: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... age-tools/

- Add posibility to display gecko tabs (firefox)

*there also may be added postions by plugins (like in firefox tools/..)

I want the new skins but don't like the addons suggestion. I prefer build-in features. :crazy:

If you have already launched Avant Downloader, right click on the orange Avant downloader icon in the system tray to open the menu and choose Options to open the Options window, uncheck Take Over Browser's File Download.

I doesn't resolve the issue if for example I want to use downloader but i don't want the icon in the tray this option should be available
Besides it should be integrated into avant

Another option is to uncheck Tools->Downloads->Options->Take Over Browser's File Download.

If it's checked, Avant Downloader will automatically pop up when you click over a download link, if unchecked, ie's or firefox's downloader pops up.

You still don't understand what I mean
What If I want to use this downloader but i don't want the icon in system tray.
There should be simply this option.
And making browser downloader as separate application is unprofessional IMO.
I haven't seen something like that but i've used many browser.
Please make it neatly and built it in browser.
