Avant still hogs memory after closedown - also "phantom tabs

Post by Patr100 » Mon Jun 14, 2010 7:34 pm

It's always been so but now more so, because It doesn't close down fully.

As with the previous version with this multi avanttab memory use, even If I close 2010 build 2 it still hogs memory in Windows Task Manager (XP SP3 - IE 8) showing instances of avantab.ext and avant.exe which have to be closed down manually. Whereas in older versions it was only one instance now its multiples.

Whn attempting to open a new tab I'm also sometimes getting a "phantom tab" in the tabs bar which are blank(no page title etc) but cannot be opened or closed.

I don't know if it's connected but I also noticed that there is a longish delay after closedown before the eggtimer clears so it's obviously doing something in the background. I've never noticed this in any other browser I've used.

For some reason the forum has turned the number eight into a face
IE (8) Eight is what I typed.
