Error dialogs, FF engine broken

Post by Dreamer » Tue Jul 02, 2013 5:41 pm

When my internet provider was down for some time, I opened AB with many tabs opened from last session. I used FF as default engine. Result is on screenshot, I had to hold Enter to close those dialogs for quite long.

I closed AB, next time, when internet was working, I tried to open AB again, no error dialogs anymore, all tabs were opened, but not loaded - lilac pages instead, I tried to restart once more, refresh one by one, duplicate to opene new tabs, open completely new pages as new tabs, it was completely broken with FF engine.

Then I tried to change default engine to Chrome, all tabs were loaded correctly. Then I tried to open one page with FF engine, it was NOT working - lilac page all the time.

Chrome engine is working, but I miss few important extensions from FF. How can I fix the FF engine? I don't want to re-configure everything, I did it once, pages, bookmarks, passwords, just few weeks ago.

This is another ugly bug, internet can't be down even for a few minutes, or the browser is completely broken. :evil:

AB 2012 build 108, FF engine, Win Vista SP2 32 bit.

Have you tried overlay installation ? Your setting won't lost. Or you can backup your Avant profiles and then reinstall Avant.

Are the following steps are correct?
1 Open Avant with firefox engine and then open some tabs when the Internet is connected.
2 Cut off Internet ,save all the tabs and exit Avant
3 Reopen Avant, then the error appears?

No, it was not like that, steps to reproduce are different, please try these steps:

- open avant, ff engine, open few tabs
- use options to auto-save and re-open last closed tabs without dialogs
- exit avant (tabs are saved automatically)
- turn off/on computer (probably not needed)
- cut off internet
- open avant
= now I had that error dialogs
- then exit avant
- turn on internet
= lilac pages
- restart avant
= lilac pages
- open new tabs, refresh pages..
= still lilac pages
- change to chrome engine
= pages are working
- change back to ff
= lilac pages

If you can't reproduce it, I'll try it later...

BTW Now, after PC restart I tried to reload a page with the firefox engine, I had the lilac page, then white page and after about 10 more seconds the page loaded correctly, from now on all pages are working with the ff engine instantly, strange.

Anyway, I see the chrome engine is MUCH faster than firefox engine, I just need one important extension for chrome, but I will be testing chrome more now...

OK, so I'm using FF engine again and it's crashing all the time, when I refresh all pages, it works just for a few minutes or seconds and then crash - lilac pages, really annoying, build 108 with FF engine and many tabs opened is unusable.

I tried the steps you provided several times, but cannot reproduce the problem. Is it possible that some files are broken in the Gecko folder?

OK, it happened again - the dialogs, while internet was working, many tabs were opened (38) and other programs were using internet too - opening tabs was too slow and then avant crashed - error dialogs, lilac pages.

After closing all dialogs and refreshing all tabs it works good.
