Well, any way that gets that 'tab' problem fixed, I welcome !  :)
The devs are trying to reproduce it, but be patient - it's weekend. ;)

Well, if this 'tab' problem can't be fixed, is there a way to simply change the browser options from 'open in new tab', to 'open in new window' ? I don't see that option anywhere in my settings page.

Thanks ! Yes, I know about this 'right click' feature, but I was wondering if 'settings' would have it as a 'permanent' setting, where I can just set it to 'open as new window' automatically, when I click on a link, instead of right clicking everything I want to see.   ;)

Avast Team Member BWhit has provided a fix, see here:  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=222462.0

Issue is inactive tab auto-clears page data so when you go back to an inactive tab, there is nothing there, resulting in a blank page.

Turn it off, works for me.

Hi, and thanks for the message. I did what you suggested, and it actually worked ! For about 10 minutes.............then the FB tab page refreshed again, like usual. But for that 10 minutes, I was clicking left and right with no probs. So, now I'm completely stumped.  :-\

I'd suggest opening ASB to the home page and then pressing these three keys at the same time:

Ctrl+Shift+Delete.

This should/will bring up a new tab with the image [attached] found below:

Each user should set Privacy Cleaner to clean data after every session and also choose which categories to clean to what they need.  Six settings are set to clean by me (manually only, auto-clean is not available) with 5 shown and the sixth hidden.  That setting is Content Settings with the two last settings left unchecked.

One other thing:  I use a sandbox to protect any browser from unwanted changes but make any desired changes outside of the sandbox.

Did Ctrl+Shift+Delete help?

Nope, still hasn't helped the issue, so I guess I'll just stick with Chrome, as the tab problem does not exist there.....................................
