Only toolbars visible after being minimized for a while

Postby bassiliin » Mon Aug 02, 2010 5:53 pm

Avant 2010 buil 105 (same problem occured also with builds 103, 102)

After letting PC running everything minimized (including Avant) for a while and later trying to restore Avant I only get Toolbars and Tabs visible but not web pages itself. There is seen only desktop, Win Explorer, mIRC or whatever other program is running back. I can still click tabs, addresses are canging in address bar but only first tab is visually active (pushed down) and still only background programs are visible there where should be web pages. Killing whole Avant in task manager and starting Avant again is only cure for now.

I read about this in previous threads but never saw it myself until now after I installed build 105.

How long is a while? I had it minimized 45 min but can't confirm. And how many open tabs?

I had 7-8 tabs open, and once 20 min was enough. And its not reproducable always with exactly same behaviour. It just happens.

..and build 108 does same. And not even minimized. I just opened new tab and went to another program and had only toolbars visible. But I found something. There were error that tab not responding: reopen or close. No matterwhat to choose, no change. Then I checked it in process manager and one ybrowser.exe was using 50% of CPU (50% because I think Avant cannot use multicore processors, otherwise it would be 100% which would be even more worse and freezing whole computer). So now I'm waiting another freeze-up error to check one more thing what I suspect.

This happens on xp sp3? Could you offer more information about your CPU speed & RAM size, using laptop or desktop PC?

My theory about CPU load was wrong earlier what I thought. More weird stuff to come. I don't know has it always acting like this because I just killed Avant if something happend, but now I made some more tests. Usual Avant toolbars, but other program is seen. I can even change tabs, refresh them, do some search from search bar, everything works... somewhere.., but what I see is only background program. I can change background programs, but if I choose Avant again, then last viewed program will be seen. BUT, if I minimize Avant and all other programs so theoretically I should see desktop I see something else. I see missing part of browser, without toolbars and everything. And these webpages work. I can browse, open links in new tab and everything without toolbars. And I can bring back toolbars clicink in system tray on Avant icon (which restores minimized Avant). Then I can work as Avant should work. But if I change to another program and then back to Avant I'll get again only toolbars. So if this toolbar error comes up, I minimise everything which leaves me Avant browser content visible and clicking Avant icon in tray brings up also toolbars.

Here are also some screenshots:

And damn this forum rule for editing posts. I wrote so long additional text and it prohibited me to enter it. Anyway again shortly saying after playing so with avant (mimising restoring trick) at the end Avant died so I still have to kill it. And now more "funny" part. Avant restored all setiings to default: style was changed to compact, all buttons are default ones, theme changed to Crystal (I use AthenX), search was changed to Bing (I use Google), it asked me again about saving data to online (which I never do) and in the end it even congratulated me for installing build 108 (AGAIN!). So.. What the h**k? (God bless that I backed up everything 2 days ago and I got my settings back from build 107)

It's getting worse, with build 112 I'm getting this error about in every 10-15 minutes when surfing and sometimes switching to other programs (mIRC, Win Explorer, etc). Comparing build 112 with build 111 then build 111 was like excellent product.

Yesterday haven't got much time, but with about hour of surfing with regular websites and running same programs build 116 behaved unexpectedly well. Will try today evening again.

If it happens again, try closing all tabs to see whether the browser recovers itself.

Today I tried to set google search settings which can be done in google page and voila, again only toolbars visible and one ybrowser.exe was eating 50% CPU. I killed that one, refreshed all pages. Everything was ok. Then I tried to download a file (2MB) and again one ybrowser.exe was eating 50% CPU. When download was done then this ybrowser.exe closed itself and browser is working ok. This last behaviour that download eats 50% CPU I'm having pretty often, with previous builds and right now with build 116 as well. Not with each download, but often still.

Build 117 has this issue aswell (issue occured several times within the space of 1 hour, only way to get rid of it is close and re-open Avant - and then repeat ad nauseum).

Got only toolbars visible error also with build 118. Just switched to Thunderbird for a second and when switching back to Avant I saw Avant toolbars and Thunderbird inside.

Don't know developer did, but they did it all wrong with build 118. I have toolbars only errors within every 20-30 minutes. Exiting (right click in systray and selecting exit) Avant freezes whole computer completely. Cannot even change programs in taskbar. Only thing I can do is press ctrl+alt+del to bring up task manager to kill Avant. Then computer unfreezes.
