Task Bar Won't Show

Another thing I've noticed with the new build 17, the majority of the time after opening a new tab, I can't get my Task Bar to pop up when I hover my mouse at the bottom of the screen (Auto Hide engaged). The only way to get my Task Bar functionality is to use the Windows key to pop it open, which also pops open the Start Button window.

XP SP3
IE8 Standard Rendering

Confirmed, same problem here. Avant Browser 2013 Build 17, Firefox Engine

Windows XP SP3
CPU: Athlon XP 2600+ (Avant Gecko Engine + plugin container is often using 100% CPU, and therefore slowing down my system)

NO !!

Just noticed that this is NOT fixed as stated with build 21 :thumbdown:

Taskbar set to autohide can be seen BEHIND AB that makes it impossble to change to other tasks via taskbar.
Workaround are change AB size, use ALT+TAB, press windows key (if KB have) or minimize ALL window to get
access to taskbar. Maybe there are more workarounds but thats whats comes to mind.

I think in Build 20 it was fixed, at least the few hours I used it, but Build 21 still has that bug (again) :eh:

Not "again" but that it hasn't been fixed completely.

it isn't fixed completely here.

When i have some taps open and click "close all except this one" and then open a new bookmark, the taskbar stays hidden again.

Not fixed in Build 22!
In rare cases it works normally, but most times the bug is still there.

And a new bug: ALT + TAB (task switcher) shows the Avant Icon twice, I use Windows XP SP3.

So far it's working with the exception that I still can't open my desktop sidebar (a utilities folder) unless I first minimize Avant and mouse to the right side of the screen to open the sidebar. Once I do that I can access it with Avant maximized. Minor pain in the butt....

Well that didn't last long. Seems that after opening and closing several tabs on this forum I couldn't get my task bar to open again unless I pressed the Windows button. :?
