Extra home pages opened in odd order

Post by DutchGemini » Wed Dec 07, 2016 7:49 am

I have set 7 extra home pages.

Until short ago, before I had to recover an image display problem under Chrome (listed as bug) these extra home pages would open in the order in which they were added: #1, #2, #3, ...#7.

Now that I have reset the faulty AB profile they open in a different order. The first one opens as first (i.e. the left-most tab), starting the second home page they open in reverse order, resulting in: #1, #7, #6, ... #2.

Nothing really serious, a workaround for restoring the correct order is to reverse positions #2 onward. But odd anyway.

Out of curiosity, is the order in which they're opening consistent?

When I open all bookmarks in a folder, Avant used to open them in order, but it hasn't for years. Initially, I thought maybe Avant was not showing the tab until the initial connection to the site has been made.

Clearly, this is no answer or even any additional insight, but everyone I know that used to use Avant has long since dropped it, so it's nice to run across someone to bounce a similar issue off of.

The order is always #1, #7, #6, #5, #4, #3, #2. Very rarely they're out of sync and they can be mixed up, usually this occurs when the network is overloaded or a Windows or Java update is running when AB starts. Under normal circumstances it opens in the order indicated.

Sorry, no bookmarks, it's under extra home pages Avant Options > Home Page > Additional pages to open at startup (list) and Open extra home pages on startup checked.

All of a sudden the opening order restored itself to #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7. Maybe AB uses metrics to calculate which position these should open, or another component does, but the issue "resolved" all by itself. Undocumented feature. Happy camper again.

This is so absurd. I was forced to re-install AB Ultimate 17, to repair a situation caused by an application that wanted to install Chrome and which I interrupted -some installers promote Chrome and have the option preset with check mark an impossible to see (a tiny box instead of a clear mark), my fault anyway.

Now that AB + Chromium is again operational, the problem of the wrong order of open tabs resurfaced. Interesting to see if it can be solved.
