Task switcher tab shows two icons

Post by deus-ex » Fri Mar 29, 2013 11:23 am

Avant Browser v13.0 beta 22 light (IE engine only), Windows 7 64bit:

1. Avant Browser 13 beta 22 appears with two icons in the task switcher tab. Switching back to previous build fixes it (screenshots below).

2. Since a few releases Avant Browser is distributed with the old version of the resource folder "\res" which contains many obsolete files. For instance check file logo.jpg which shows copyright (c) 1999-2012 instead of 1999-2013.

Windows XP SP3 - when I use the switching keys ALT + TAB, I see two Avant icons. This is a new bug in Build 22

This sort of thing also happened in older builds of Avant Browser 2012, so I can't explain, why such old bugs happen again?

This bug has been around for a looooooong time (see http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic ... er#p105484 from 2006). Jasmine once said that when she asked Anderson (the developer) about it, his answer was that the second instance in the Task Switcher is caused by having one process for Avant itself (avant.exe) and a second process for the rendering engine in use (ybrowser.exe for IE, chrome.exe for Chrome, and firefox.exe for Firefox). You can prove this to yourself by quickly pressing Alt+Tab a few times while watching the Avant titlebar. The titlebar color will change back and forth as you do this, but Avant always remains in front, because the focus is switching between the content pane and the Avant UI itself. Jasmine also said that Anderson told her there's nothing he can do to eliminate the second instance in the Task Switcher.

There has been quite a bit of discussion about this again recently on these forums, but I haven't seen anything to indicate that anything has changed regarding this problem. Maybe xiaobing can tell us whether or not Anderson still has plans to find a way to fix this.

I'll remind him of this problem and see whether he can find a solution under standard style.

Recorded.

I am also seeing two Avant icons when using ALT+TAB to switch between windows but I'm getting it on 2 machines both running Win7 SP-1. It's very annoying.

I will try reverting back to an earlier version to see if it goes away.

I don't see this problem any more in 2013 alpha 101.

On my XP SP3 machine with IE8 Rendering and build 22 and 23, the only time I see two Avant Task Switch icons is right after I open a new tab. A few seconds after the new tab loads the 2nd icon goes away.
