Avant no longer recognizes/respects correct screen size.

Post by dru » Sat May 04, 2013 1:25 pm

Since updating to the latest, I can no longer view the bottom of webpages, nor can I see my tabs bar - because they are off the bottom of my screen.

I run a 3 monitor setup. My center monitor is a widescreen (2048x1152), while the left and right panels are 4:5 standards (1600x1200). They are also at an offset to standard alignment (physically, so I use the offset via windows to align them for mousing purposes). From left to right, the screen positions are (X -1600, Y -48), (X: 0, Y: 0), and (X: 2400, Y -48).

If I open avant on my widescreen, everything aligns properly top and bottom, but if I open it on either the left or right panels, where it needs to be, the bottom of the browser is cut off. This is not a Windows issue, this is exclusive to Avant after updating it to Ultimate 2013, build 107.

Could you please show me a screenshot?
I currently have only one monitor. I need the screenshot to put it into the bug report.

I'm really trying, but your forum software makes it very difficult. It complains about images because they are too large (by necessity!), or it complains about file sizes (because they exceed 512k), OR it complains I don't have enough posts in order to provide URLs to other sites, so...

With that in mind, I provide the following post, and you can replace the ABCXYZ with the imageshack.us as necessary. Yes, they're large images.

Here's my desktop without the browser open, you can see general icon placement and such for reference.

ABCXYZ/a/img199/2210/desktop1nobrowser.jpg

This is what it looks like (Avant on right panel) with the browser non-maximized. You can clearly see the statusbar and tabs bar along the bottom of the browser frame.

Hopefully these will be able to help you track down the issue.

Here, after maximizing, you can see that the tabs and status bar are no longer visible.

After maximizing, this happens often. I tend to hide/restore the browser as I work on things. Often, when it restores to full screen, I then get this view presented here - where it appears the status/tabs bar should have been rendered, but are done so off the bottom of the screen. I am fully able to click on the now-visible desktop icons that are visible between that line at the bottom of the screen and where the browser window is no longer being rendered.

I have a problem related to the pone described in this topic.
I have three monitors: first is 1680x1050 second is 1920x1200 and third is 1680x1050, all aligned on the bottom line.
I am using Avant browser Ultimate 2013 build 119 on windows 7 x64 with UltraMon (A multi-monitor manager).
I always use Show tab bar on bottom as this is a very important feature for me.
If I maximize the window on one of those two 1680x1050 monitors, the tab bar will be positioned in a wrong position above the content of the web page. If I maximize the window on the 1920x1200 monitor, everything is ok.
If I uncheck Show tab bar on bottom, everything is ok on every monitor.

The problem I have mentioned still persists in 2014/build 5.

Here's a screenshot of my full desktop taken moments ago. You can see Avant on the rightmost screen of the desktop, and the blank area beneath where the tabs and status bar should be. The black space above the center screen represents some of the offset due to different resolutions and monitor placement. (hosted from my personal server)

Ultimate 2015 build 5 is working just fine. It appears that this bug is finally solved. Thanks!
