Search bar locks up after typing 3-4 charactars

Post by chevytycoon » Sat Jun 12, 2010 9:22 pm

Running XP, with IE 7 loaded as well, AB version 2010 build 1. Dell Inspiron laptop using wireless.

About 2-3 months ago is when this started. When using the search bar (regardless of search engine) after typing a few charactars, AB locks up entirely. I have to end task to restart it.

It feels as if its the auto-suggest function that is failing entirely and locking up the browser.

I can go directly to any seach engine (google, yahoo, msn) and start using auto-suggest functionality w/out any issues - its only w/in the browser that this occurs.

Does the the problem still exist in Avant 2010 build 1?

Yes, it is still occuring with 2010 Build 1; I dont recall which exact build it begain with, but I have an older laptop (Dell inspiron 1150) that is still running Version 11.7 build 35 and its NOT occurring there. Although it appears that auto-complete isnt an option b/c as i'm typing there isnt any drop down, other than my history.

Additionally, a desktop (running XP) using Avant build 11.7 build 47 SR does NOT happen either. I've tested avant search, yahoo and bing - none of them try to auto-complete so its working great!!

Therefore, sometime around/after 47SR up to and including 2010 Build 1, this issue started occuring. Its definitely when auto-complete is beginning to function - totally locks up the browser.
