Page loads and then tab closes automatically

Post by nlucier » Tue May 29, 2007 7:00 pm

Every time that I attempt to go to http://www.garmin.com the tab closes immediately after the page loads. I can sit there and repeat this all day. I just noticed that apparently Avant is thinking that the entire page is a pop-up. Can anyone see what it is on the page that makes Avant think that? I'm running into quite a few pages lately that have had this behavior.

I can open the page fine in IE7, btw.

Intel Core 2 Duo 6400
XP Pro SP2
2GB RAM
Avant 11 build 46


Any ideas?

I don't have problems opening the site but noticed that it uses Adobe Flash Player. Did you disable flash?

Nope. Flash is turned on in Avant. The only things that I have checked in the tools menu is "Enable Ad-Blocker" and "Block Unwanted Pop-Up Pages".

It loads fine in AB 11.5 rc3 so perhaps its just a problem with the 11 build. You can try 11.5 here if you wish,

If it's the popup blocker blocking it, try opening View -> Blocked URLs -> Popups, right-clicking on the URL being shown as blocked and choose one of the options to stop blocking it.

Since I have the Pop-Up blocker active and don't experience the problem, I have to assume it's rather the AD-Blocker that's the culprit.

I just tried it and didn't have that problem, and I have both the Pop-up and Ad blockers enabled. (11.0 Build 46, Windows XP Home Edition w. Service Pack 2). :|

I installed 11.5RC3 as suggested to me earlier in the thread and it still does the same thing. The problem is indeed the Pop-Up Blocker since if I disable that (and leave Ad-Blocker enabled), the page works fine.

Putting Garmin on my excluded list, like several other sites I've had to do.

Does that work?

Did you check the Blocked URLs list? If you're having to do this a lot, maybe there's a rule that's been added that is causing it and removing that rule might prevent you from having to add so many sites to your exception list.

Yes it does. I can get to the page just fine when I put *garmin* in the exclusions list.

I can't see any rule that is affecting this page. It might be something that get's loaded into the page since it does have Flash on it, but I can't pinpoint it myself.
