Re: Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

Before I do anything... the folder in question to save is C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\profile.backup\ But there may be another problem I need to ask about. When I look inside I find only TWO backups C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\profile.backup\.default\2015-08-17\14...

Re: Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

Thanks for the speedy reply. It didn't work... and I can't afford to lose all the info there. It's has my bookmarks, URL aliases etc going back a decade.

Any other suggestions?

Avant Stopped Saving Web Pages

I've been using Firefox in the current version of Avant tri-engine... Over the past few days it no longer saves webpages as html. I can save a page as an image and text. When I try to save a page it will tell me if there's an older version I want to overwrite... I click yes, and nothing happens. I t...

Old Functions Don't Work... and long new context menu.

A few days ago... I don't recall doing anything out of the ordinary but suddenly I'd got a popup that the firefox profiles could not be found. I tried shutting down all instances of Avant and Firefox as suggested ( I use the tri-engine version). Nothing helped... and I kept getting the same popup. I...

How Do I Move Avant BookMarks etc To New PC?

I've been using Avant for over 10 years and my old PC has hundreds of bookmarks that I'd like to transfer to my new PC. I've been doing backups... which I assume might contain these bookmarks. So where are they and how would I move them to the new PC. The old PC was Vista 32 bit, the new one is Win ...

Re: Too Many Instances Of Avant/Gecko Running... and won't shut down

It doesn't look like this problem has been fixed with Ultimate b27. And I hope I'm not dreaming... but the release says b24 under Help > About.

I installed this over b.24.

Re: Avast AntiVirus Flags Avant

Oops.... the build I installed was not b17 but b24... so the problem appears between 17 and 24... and I'm getting it again in b27.

Just an FYI. There are some complaints on-line about Avast's Hardened Mode being too aggressive. But it never flagged Avant until build 24

Avast AntiVirus Flags Avant

I know the builds come fast and furious. Trying to deal with the problem of multiple instances of avant.exe and gecko.exe refusing to shut down in TaskManager I saw mention of a new beta build on 8-2... which was build 17 of the triengine. My Avant antivirus continues to flag it no matter how many t...

Re: Is it safe to block webkit.exe

If you never use Chrome in Avant you can delete the webkit folder in the Avant Browser folder. It won't show up as engine anymore then. Probably Chrome was looking for updates. Thanks for responding. I thought I had blocked every permission for Chrome to phone home... or track me, but that was year...

Re: Too Many Instances Of Avant/Gecko Running... and won't shut down

So much for the above post. I restarted the PC... opened Avant only once and watched the Taskmanager. I have two instances of both Avant.exe and Gecko running... one using 240k of memory... and I can't force a shut down on any of them using task manager... or Process Monitor by SysInternals which is...

Is it safe to block webkit.exe

I use the Ultimate Version and noticed since v2015 build 10 that my firewall gets requests that webkit.exe wants DNS access. I've always blocked it. So since I only use firefox in Avant... why do I get this when webkit is associated with Chromium... which I never use because I don't trust Google? Wh...

Re: Too Many Instances Of Avant/Gecko Running... and won't shut down

I just installed 2015 b17 ultimate and watched in task manager as it shut down. It was odd. Where there was one instance of avant.exe running... then there were 5. But I let the process continue... and it took about 40 sec before all the instances of avant, avantvw and gecko closed. So maybe in the ...

I know I'm running a slightly older version of Avant... (2015 b10) which I thought I just installed 7-10 but since this problem persists over numerous builds... and I don't know if anyone else has reported it... here goes. I use Avant with firefox... and it can stop working. When I check task manage...

Getting there. I uninstalled Threatfire. That in itself didn't do anything. But now when I shut down the firewall, I can connect. Thanks for all the help! I hope the powers that be resolve the Threatfire conflict. I like that program. Any other known conflicts I should know about? I have Malwarebyte...

Re: Avant Won't Connect

Greetings BigC... thanks for responding.

I'm running Outpost Firewall, Avira AV, Threatfire. They've always seemed to play well together with every other app since I started running all 3 about a year ago. I've tried shutting them all down with no luck.

Re: Avant Won't Connect

In a previous post about this same topic the firewall was blamed. Well I tried to dig deeper and make sure Avant and Y Browser had the same permissions as, say, Firefox. No help. I shut down the firewall... a real shutdown including the service. No help. I went into the router and shut down all the ...

Avant Won't Connect

I've used Avant perhaps going back to 2004. I tried to install the first version that had separate processes for each tab... I don't remember when that was... I could not get it to work, and I've decided to try again... with the latest v2010 216build... only to have the same problems. So I reinstall...
