Avant 11.5 b9 & b10 Background Window Focus Stealing

Post by saucermote » Sat Jun 23, 2007 1:09 am

By default, I have all pages set to load in the background, as I often find myself doing searches, or clicking on a lot of links to look at later.

The issue arrises when I'm browsing a webpage, then enter something into the search window, which is set to open a new page for search results. I have it set to google search if it matters. The search page loads in the background as it should, and the page I was viewing stays in the foreground. The problem is, on the tab selection bar, the search is now the active window, no matter how much I scroll around or click on things on the page. So I'm viewing the web page, I'm done looking at it, and I hit the X in the corner to close the active page, but instead of closing the page I'm looking at, it closes the new search that had been created in the background.

I've been using avant for a long while, and have never had this problem in previous version.

IE 6 fully updated, XP Pro SP2 fully updated, no plugins.

Edit: I'll try build 10, Avant browser says build 9 is the latest, but the homepage doesn't agree. Hopefully 10 stops wiping out my settings everytime I reboot.

----------------------------------------

I just installed build 10 and it has the same problem. I opened a google search, then scrolled down a bit, then typed a new search in the search bar. It created a new window in the background, however the tab focus was on the new search, while the view was displaying my original window. After a few moments it no longer allows me to scroll on the page I'm viewing unless I switch to the new window and back.

I just want new windows to open in the background, and let me keep working on the page I'm working on without having to shuffle around. I didn't have this problem until I upgraded to b9 and b10, but I may have skipped a few builds since my last version.

Yes you did have skipped a few, IIRC all 11.5 builds had/have this problem.
Thanks Anderson for checking out my AB 11.0 feature request list,
now it's time to go on with 11.8:

Confirmed, even though Build 10 is supposed to fix it "Fixed a bug of focusing new window". But it isn't.

In AB 11.5 B10, Anderson indeed ""Fixed a bug of focusing new window", but it was not this particular one.

Altbough I can confirm it, this one described by saucermote may / should be fixed as long as clear descriptions and requests -- like saucermote's are -- as to how it should work are made available to Anderson.

I saw that in the AB 11.5 B11 notes "Fixed a bug of focusing new window."

However the issue described in this error report was not fixed, must be one of the other new window on top issues.
