Next build -when?

Post by mbrazil » Mon Oct 31, 2011 8:11 am

Will there be another build available soon? Some of the already reported bugs in build 3 can be pretty annoying if you're trying to use it for normal daily use.

For example:

1. UI stops responding or does odd things until you minimize Avant to the tray icon and restore it.
2. Firefox.exe crashes randomly.
3. Firefox add-on toolbar sometimes gets covered up when tabs need a second line.
4. All of Avant crashes randomly -- not as often as firefox.exe, but still too often.
5. New links opening in current tab instead of a new tab.
6. Tab windows staying on top of other apps.
7. Alt+tab not working first time.
8. Avant UI sometimes on top of other app window with other app showing through instead of web page.

More that I can't think of right now.

For google search result page, you have to set in search settings for opening the result in new tabs.

I've had Google set that way for ages. It happens with any site once Avant gets in the mood to ignore its settings and open links in the current tab instead of in a new one, as it's set to do. Usually, I can get it working right again (for a while, anyway) by minimizing Avant to the tray icon and then restoring it. Unfortunately, between this bug and some others affecting the Avant UI, I'm minimizing and restoring quite often, not to mention having to Refresh All every time firefox.exe crashes or restart Avant when the whole thing crashes.

I realize we're still beta testing, regardless of what they call the releases, and I don't mean this as a complaint, but it's hard to be on the lookout for new or previously undetected bugs when the current ones make Avant so unstable and get in the way of using it.
