Re: Unable to login online storage

Same is happening to me. I was just about to post a question when I saw that others are having the same problem. Using Ultimate 2016 Build 7. Re-installed but no change.

Re: Problem opening PDF files with AB Ultimate

Interesting. Opening the pdf file works with Chrome, Firefox and Safari. It does not work with Avant (with rendering engine set to IE11), IE11 or Opera. Anyway, I have re-installed Foxit (I had used it previously) and set it as the default pdf reader and can now view the pdf file in Avant. When I fi...

Re: Problem opening PDF files with AB Ultimate

Sadly, it's not listed in either of these two. I did expect to find it here but no....no sign of Adobe Acrobat or pdf.

I have a similar problem that has occured since a recent power failure and I am hoping that someone can help please. I'm using Ultimate 2016 build 2. I use IE11 as the default rendering engine and suddenly I am no longer able to view an embedded pdf file. I've checked Tools but can't find which sect...

Restore settings

I had a power failure and my computer crashed. On reloading Avant I lost all my settings. I uninstalled Avant when I could not reset everything and re-installed it (latest Ultimate version as before the power failure). I have retrieved my bookmarks but still have a couple of issues. I no longer have...

Re: Avant Browser has stopped working

Yes, providing, obviously, that I opt for "look for Windows solution" rather than "close Avant".

Mind you it is over a week now since I saw the message!!!!! Very strange.

Re: Avant Browser has stopped working

Sorry - My hasty reply!!!! I've checked the add-ons and nothing is listed uner Avant. There are severl listed under IE but none ticked. I know however, that I am using a password logon system (can't know remember which one). But I have been using this for years. I can't think of anything else.

Avant Browser has stopped working

I am using Ultimate version 2015 build 27. About two weeks ago I started to get an error message "Avant Browser has stopped working" giving me the option to close the program or search Windows for a solution. I have chosen the latter and all is well for a while but the problem persists. I have tied ...

Unable to login to online storage

Suddenly today I had a message from Avant prompting me to enter my password. I entered it but it informed me that it was incorrect. I tried again but to no avail. So I asked the system to send me a password to my email address. But I received no email. I tried several times but still no joy. I have ...

I have a web site that has worked perfectly for several years. It relies on retrieving data from a database and saving non-confidential information as cookies. However, a recent problem with my ISP meant that he had to copy and restore my database and reload my web site pages. Now the web site does ...

Re: Rendering engine default for specific bookmark

Neat idea Nederpietos. Unfortunatley it didn't work. Not sure why. However, whilst playing with this approach I appear to have solved the problem. When I open the web page I always do so from my bookmarks and right click on the link and select "open in new tab" so that I preserve those pages/tabs al...

Re: Rendering engine default for specific bookmark

I logon to my Avant Account so that I can see the same bookmarks on all my computers. Otherwsie I have to set up some sync mechanism between all of my computers. This was one advantage of Avant many years ago; if I am not mistaken they were the first browser to offer this facility. So, if I am away ...

Re: Rendering engine default for specific bookmark

Thanks Nederpietos - Yes, I am familiar with this option as I use it for some of my web site pages that are not compatible with Internet Explorer. But I want to have different bookmarks pointing to the same web page but each one using a different rendering engine; I call one bookmark1 and the other ...
