Avant Build 39 won't close properly

Post by jasarthur » Wed Oct 07, 2009 3:43 am

Since installing build 39, the browser refuses to close and I have to go to Task Manager to shut down my PC. When I reopen Avant, it tells me it did not properly exit the last session, and provides a list of the last active windows. I'm on a Toshiba Satellite running Windows XP and did NOT have this issue with previous versions!

What other applications are running? Particularly any anti-virus/malware programs which may continue scanning while Avant is working to shut itself down.

I haven't had anything else running in the background. However, I did discover after posting that if I select FILE--EXIT, it closes as it should. Previously I was using the down arrow or X.

Firstly, the down arrow minimises Avant to the tray instead of closing it.
Secondly, I believe that you have the following option enabled - please disable it:
Tools >> Avant Browser Options... >> Tray Icon >> Minimize to system tray, when click [Close] button.

Well I'll try that later, but...had to force quit my PC tonight because Avant was NOT RESPONDING!

It wouldn't close using task manager and wouldn't even let me log off normally from the START button. I mean, it was totally frozen. So I had to use the power button.

BTW, using the down arrow has exited the browser for me (when it works), not minimized it. Why would it do the same task as the long dash (underscore)? :|
