AB Freezes When Typing , CPU Usage Jumps to 25%

Post by pelias » Sat Feb 27, 2010 8:11 pm

AB freeze lasts for up to minute before clearing -- very annoying. CPU usage drops from 25% to 1 or 2% after clearing.

No other browser including IE, Firefox freezes when typing.

Have AB Vsn 11.6, Build 46. and IE Vsn 8.0. Started freezing several AB versions ago. Using Windows XP Pro and Quad Core Extreme QX6800 CPU, same core always maxes out when freeze-up occurs.

If have to re-install, how do I save Autofills and Bookmarks? Typing this query has frozen at least 10 times.

The latest build of Google Toolbar causes that problem - it has been mentioned recently in the forums.

You have stated the freezing problem is caused by conflict with latest Goggle toolbar. Good to know the problem has been diagnosed.

So what is the workaround -- is Avant Browser going to issue a patch? I doubt Goggle will change their toobar, especially as no other broswer has the same problem , as I have stated previously?

Thanks, appreciative AB user.

For now, remove Google Toolbar and install an older version from http://www.filehippo.com/download_google_toolbar_ie/

If you read the above thread you will see that Avant v11.8 promises to resolve the issue.

I read the other thread but couldn't see any timelines for release of Avant v11.8.

How long before Avant v11.8 is rolled out? The sooner the better, or Avant Browser will lose a lot of customers since no other browser is affected-- even though it really might be Google's fault.

Hoping for a quick rollout of Avant Vsn11.8. A formerly satisfied AB customer.
