Update popup - clicking 'x' to close opens update web page
« on: December 13, 2011, 11:03:56 AM »
AIS 6.0.1367, XP Pro SP3, manually closing the update popup often does the same as clicking on "More details...>>". Haven't seen it on W7 though.

Never seen this on any XP system before.
Btw, you can easily change the time the update popup is displayed.

Edit: Ok, as I just got an update, I tried it and it didn't go to "More Details" here.

I can't recall having seen it on my XP system, but it is a very long time since I did it. I have my avastUI, Settings, Popups, adjusted much lower (5,5,7,10 seconds) than the default settings so I just let it close now.

I think you simply missed the closing icon and clicked a bit away; happened a few times to me, too.

Confirmed, I just tested clicking near the "x" and it displays the "More details" page.
Think this issue is solved..! :)

More "intensive" research (images below) indicates that you are right.
So now I'll ask the real question. Why does clicking so far away from "More details...>>" give me... more details? ;)

I believe clicking the whole popup actually gives you more details.
I asked a few times whether at least the right pane could be excluded from that, but it seems to be complicated to do or something...  :(
