Avant toolbar becomes unresponsive.

Sometimes the whole top bar will become unclickable. It'll just happen out of the blue for no reason.
Just before it happens, the address bar seems to go blank, then it might come back when I open a new tab - but the entire top toolbar of Avant does not respond. It requires me to kill avant.exe and firefox processes and restart Avant to fix it.
I'm using the Firefox engine of course.

Build 112.
On a positive note, I haven't gotten any purple screens.

Have you tried minimizing Avant to the tray icon and then restoring it? I've been having what sounds like either the same problem or very close to it on every 2013 build I can remember (it's recorded as a bug, but that doesn't seem to mean much anymore). Minimize (to tray) and restore always makes it work again for me without closing Avant.

Sometimes it wont happen in a day, but when it does it might happen 2 or 3 times in that day.
It actually hasn't happened since Mike posted his suggestion, so I haven't even tested it out yet.
