Avant not displaying some web sites correctly

Post by Tony.br » Fri Jul 11, 2008 7:34 pm

This seems to have occurred in the last month or so. I have tried the same sites on IE, OPERA and FIREFOX and all display correctly

Some sites affected are http://www.slashgear.com http://www.engadjet.com

Some parts of the page overlay others instead of being displayed correctly but others are fine

I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no success which is a pity because I love avant

Is this unique to me or are others having this proble. I have attached a screen dump of the effect

It loads properly in the 11.7 alpha version of AB here. Perhaps you can try with that version...

Thanks for the comments guys

I tried the beta but sadly but sadly this did not help and it introduced another issue so I reverted to the last official build

However the comments were appreciated

Continuing to detail about the issue will serve to help the cause in finding bugs. Please elaborate on the 'new issue'.

I have just discovered that I had an earlier version of AVANT so I loaded this

The sites that displayed incorrectly were now 100%

I then reloaded the latest version and the fault returned

I repeated this a 2nd time with the same results

I have screen dumps of the same site with both versions and I am happy to email to anyone if required

The Latest is 11.6 build 20

the older one is 11.0 build 49

AVANT not displaying some sites correctly

Post by Tony.br » Mon Aug 04, 2008 12:19 am

I previouse started a thread on this problem but sadly it was not resolved.

1 - I created a dual boot system with new build of windows, updated it to SP3 and found the problem does not exist with the latest version.

2 - I returned to the original version of windows I have done some hours of testing and this is what I discovered.

3 - I found the Version 5 build 46 that I had was 100%

4 - I discovered the Archive of older versions of Avant so by testing different versions I found that V 11_6 Build 02 and all earlier builds were 100%, but V 11_6_build 4 and all later builds exhibited the problem.

I am well aware that the problem is some external factor in my copy of windows but there may be some underlying bug that was introduced with Build 4 that may be affecting others. I hope that somehow the AVANT writers see this and meantime, I am going to stay with Build 2

Please don't start a new topic for the same issue. I'll merge this post with the other thread.

Hi Guys

I posted the original query and the problem still persists with the latest update

HOWEVER, I have just tried ORCA and I am delighted to report that it is 100% so I have meantime made it my default browser

I can only assume that while AVANT builds on the IE Core, ORCA is completely self contained and this accounts for the fact it reacts differently

Many thanks

Tony
