WIN10 1903 UPDATE BREAKS AVANT

What a mess... this update has affected numerous programs including Avant. All I see is the shell... not any browser. I'm using the latest version of Ultimate 2019 build 2. Any ideas? EDIT.... that update broke so many things... I just reverted back to the previous built. Avant works again. But befo...

BROWSER HANGUP?

This is happening with 2019 build 2 ultimate... using Firefox. On occasion a page clearly seems to have loaded completely... but the notice on the bottom says data is still being transferred from the site... and I'm unable to back up to the previous page using the back button OR the link to the prev...

Time Limit On History

Having a history of past websites is incredibly useful, but it's all or nothing... to let them pile up... or to delete them all. I'd love to see some expiration date option for the Ultimate Edition... that all history over, say, 30 days old will be automatically deleted... similar to the option on b...

SUGGESTION: Just make One GOOD Browser...

I love the Ultimate edition, but in the end I only use Firefox. It seems now the Ultimate Edition was a bridge too far with Chrome and Firefox making too many changes... the Avant team can't keep up or has lost interest. I'm having some of the same problems with Firefox that I was a year ago where p...

ONCE AGAIN... going back to 2017 build 10??

How long will these Firefox bugs continue with Ultimate? I keep trying new builds and the same bug... pages not appearing, remains. Heck, I couldn't even get the Avant site to load... so I switched over to Chrome to post here. But... as someone suggested... a right click on the page makes it appear....

Re: BIZZARE PROBLEMS with build 12.

You may be correct. The lack of response is VERY troubling. That would be sad... I've been using Avant since 2005 and the Avant shell has a host of features I love. I feel lost with other browsers in their pure form and spend a good amount of time swearing at them. Hopefully this is just an issue wi...

Re: SAVE PAGE FUNCTION DOESN'T WORK

UPDATE... I now have 2017 Build 12 Ultimate... and the save HTML function STILL does not work in Firefox. It's the same problem as described in my earlier posts. But now it seems to overwrite older files... but won't create new ones.

WHERE ARE OLDER DOWNLOADS OF ULTIMATE?

The site should really leave a link to the last version up in case the new build has problems. And that's what I'm having. I let the Ultimate browser autoupdate and I immediately had problems with some websites using Firefox. I found out it was just with https sites. I had an old download for build ...

BIZZARE PROBLEMS with build Ultimate 12.

After frequent nags, I finally let the Avant browser auto update to the newest version of the ultimate browser which I assume was build 12. Right after that I was unable to visit any HTTPS sites in Firefox. So I went back to an older version. System info... Win10, 64 bit. UPDATE: someone posted that...

Re: SAVE PAGE FUNCTION DOESN'T WORK

Thanks for the reply. I only use Firefox in Ultimate. I never use IE and I routinely delete the Chrome folder... because it sometimes shows that it's active in Task Manager when I've never used it... and I don't trust Google. That was not the case in the latest tests. So any file I'm trying to overw...

I've noticed this bug for a while but I just did a test to confirm using standalone Firefox and Avant Firefox... the latest version of Ultimate. If I use the FILE > SAVE > SAVE function of a page... say a post here at the forum... the save works. If If I use the FILE > SAVE > SAVE HTML function... i...

New Ultimate Version Won't Install

I've twice tried to install the newest Ultimate version over an older 2016 Build 2... and as soon as I start it up, it says there's a new version available. And when I check the version of the installed version... it's still 2016 build 2.

Re: Why Can't I EASILY Restore Avant Layout After Crash?

Problem solved. The compact view option was checked. But that still doesn't answer the question why all my browser options aren't saved so they can easily be restored.

Re: Avant Downloader Constantly Bogs Down

Just a bump since no one's responded in 8 months. I'm now running Win 10 and still having the same problems. I suspect the Avant downloaded interacts differently with servers than do other downloaders. The URL of a video should popup instantly when I click on the download... and it will the first 1-...

Why Can't I EASILY Restore Avant Layout After Crash?

No responses from the powers that be? Any suggestions for another download plugin for Firefox? I'm looking for one that allows me to directly enter URLs and not just a right click option.

Re: Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

Just a quick update... this problem has resolved itself. Don't ask me why. It's not that I have Avant set for any automatic hot fixes or updates.

Avant Downloader Constantly Bogs Down

I only use the Avant downloader because I can enter a URL as opposed to a right click "save as". I've been downloading some videos and the Avant downloader constantly bogs down if there are more than 3 downloads. I won't be able to create a new task because the window freezes so I can't enter a file...
