My settings are gone

Post by Jorge Junior » Sun Apr 14, 2013 7:32 pm

A friend logged in with his account in my computer and noticed that his AB settings were a little different. Then he logged out and I logged in with my account and all my settings were gone. Only my bookmarks were restored. I lost my Autofills, the rendering engine, the skin I had chosen and everything in Tools\Avant Browser Options.
I use the latest Ultimate version with Mozilla rendering engine by default.

Are there any backups listed in Tools > Backup / Restore Profiles? If so, choose one that has a date and time prior to when your friend used your computer and click Restore.

No backups.
I've never saved a backup. Even when I format the HD, when I log in my account, everything is restored.

It happened again, xiaobing.

I sent you my account name yesterday and today. I also tried to restore a profile I had saved on April 15, but it didn't work... It was as if I were installing AB for the first time, even the interface language was set to default. Only the bookmarks were restored, with a lot of strange characters, but they were there.

I'm back to build 23.
I use the latest Ultimate version with Mozilla rendering engine by default.
