pop up ads

I have two computers, each running the latest version of Avant, Windows 7 and Windows 10. On the Windows 10 machine I am plagued by popup ads. On Windows 7 these are very rare. Why, and can I do anything about it?

access to links

Usually I use Firefox for search engine (within Avant). However there are times when it hangs up. Switching to Chrome allows the link. Latest occurrence: watching a program on CBS tv.

Re: login nuisance

I have two computers, both using the latest Avant. One is on Windows 7 and the other Windows 10. Both seem to have the same problem intermittently.

login nuisance

Til now when I opened into any forum, including this one, the site remembered me from the past so that I did not have to log in again. With the latest Avant version I have to log in every time. What happened? I am using Firefox as my rendering engine.

An example. To get it, I added *.pdf to my list of items in Rendering Engine using IE11 (Avant browser options).

Re: windows 10 firefox rendering

The problem is with trying to get .pdf files. Firefox rendering just doesn't load them. Switching to ther rendering (IE11 or Chrome) allows me to bring up the files.

Firefox browser does not have this problem, only Firefox rendering in Avant.

Avant updates

Both Chrome and Firefox have much newer versions than those in Avant. When is Avant going to be updated?

Re: mouse click options

Related problem: At times I use the left button and shift key to open a new tab. Sometimes it opens in the background, other times in the foreground. It should always be in the foreground.

mouse click options

Under Avant options there are mouse options. The option I am having trouble with is using the mouse middle button to open a new tab. I have checked that I want the new tab in the foreground. Until recently it worked. However it now opens as background. What is going on? Details: I have two computers...

Re: 2018 build 1 unfixed problems

I am using Chrome as my default engine and below line skin. These work OK. Firefox rendering is a little more convenient for surfing when it works.

build 12 problem

This may not be completely new, but I tested build 12 using different rendering engines. IE 11 and Chrome seem to work OK, but Firefox does not. This is an old problem. Will it ever get fixed?

photos in linked items

On many occasions, when clicking on some news item or something similar, I get the written material, but the accompanying picture is left blank. I am using IE11 rendering in Avant. When I use Firefox alone, the picture appears. What is stopping its appearance using Avant? I would like to use Firefox...

outdated browser

I tried to pay a bill on-line. The credit card site refused my login - it said the browser was outdated and I could be exposed to security risks. I am using build 12 with IE11 as rendering engine. I then used another browser and had no problem paying the bill.
