SaveFavicons (1.00)-[19/10/09]

Post by sulpherdragon » Mon Oct 19, 2009 3:12 am

When you visit sites. Avant downloads favicons to a temporary directory. These icons show up in your autofills and bookmarks, the're pretty handy for quickly finding the sites you want when you have long lists. Except, these favicons get deleted when you Clear All Records.

SaveFavicons allows you to copy all the favicons in the temporary directory onto a safer user directory. Its handy to hit LoadFavicons after you clear your records, you can get them all back (once youve saved them). It might require you to restart Avant after you load them.

Thanks. I've installed these add-ons but can't find how to use them! Can you please tell me what do do to save my favicons?

Import them into Avant/Orca: Tools >> Avant Browser Options... >> Add-ons >> Add-ons
Click the buttons on the add-on toolbar: View >> Toolbars >> Add-on Buttons

Did you restart Avant after you clicked load?

It's working for me on WinXP - hopefully a Win7 user can confirm and help you further.
