  1. MX5 PC Beta Release

    they seem to be confused when it comes to testing - one build will go here so is on general release the next goes into the testing area only to be released 24/48 hours later on general release - tat after little or no feedback and certainly no bug fixing there is talk of a testing team - whoever they are they are not here and by the state of some of the releases they dont pick up bugs or if they do Maxthon look at them as reference only just take it as it is and dont ask questions is the best option - even if you do ask questions they never answer them
  2. install version downloads at 65 meg whilst you here can you either open the release area up for posts by us mere mortals or ask the admins to stop posting in there - it had been agreed that they would not but seem to have forgotten that said i guess any post on the board is welcome to convince the outside world that this place has a purpose
  3. i told bugsir that 1st thing this morning - she acknowledged it but seems to have done nothing No1 says its fine so its the usual thing some areas its ok others not can someone upload a decent version Maxthon obviously could not care less
  4. works fine on 8.1100 - no idea on earlier versions
  5. Maxthon and Stylish

    have not tried that update but stylish seems to have a mind of its own - so a couple of things to try 1 - go to settings/extensions and de activate stylish - then without closing the page activate it - for me that has worked sometimes 2 - check if the version of stylish has updated in the update to maxthon - the newer version has problems - i have the earlier version write prtected so it cannot update - by doing that it works most of the time i am running the other beta branch 3.8.1100 and that also has problems but it works most of the time
  6. now heres a question - a team suggests a few people so how many - 2 part timers - 10 - 20 or lots more
  7. new 5.3.8 is slow in coming - any idea when we will see it - the time its taken from the last release must [surly] mean it will have all bugs fixed
  8. not exactly sure what you are asking - are you saying stylish does not work if thats what you are saying i can only say it works for me that said it can be difficult to get it working so comeback with a clearer question and i will get some info - its not straight forward and a while since i looked at it
  9. you would have thought a security bug urgent but 3 days and counting and no fix released - is the dev or devs on holiday - i use the plural loosely as the impression is that there are few people working on anything these days the time it takes to release updates and even when released nothing much is fixed how the mighty have fallen is apt i think
  10. high priority - that should get their attention - a fix this month then maybe - hopefully not like most of the other stuff thats high priority - they have just been ignored in the past
  11. I'm disappointed

    nothing new here - in fact nothing to be seen - i thought you were going to post something new but then why would you?
  12. I'm disappointed

  13. I'm disappointed

    has the browser been given up on - not if you believe the BS from china - trillions of users - well a few less than that - where they are other than in the mind of the marketing dept and developers is anybodies guess it works and is updated now and again - new features are added that nobody asks for or wants other than the company skins - they are possible - if you want them then its a learning curve - the company seem to think they are not important and put forward that a colour change is a skin dont expect much from this place - it seems to be drawing its last breaths
  14. thats a relief - its good to know that effort can be put into moving a graphic 2 pixels whilst all the REALLY important bugs and requests continue to be ignored did it take all the devs to fix this - that said all the devs may just be a part timer drafted in now and again
  15. sure as a bug that will go to the top of the list and get every dev working on it other more important stuff can wait
  16. Stylish for Maxthon and spying

    stylish has been updated a number of times on the extension centre - checking the version listed is 3.0.4 non of the updates have ever worked for me and others that post comments the answer has been to stick with version 2.4.3 which whilst old works - i just keep the 2.4.3 extension write protected so any update does not work whether this get round the problem you state i have no idea but hopefully so

    the only efficient way to do any skin mod is to do it yourself - that means learning how shins are done but until they make skinning as MX3 every update has the potential to change mods so its virtually impossible for those who mod skins to keep up tabs at he bottom is easy enough - like i said above its not rocket science
  18. Small fonts on some pages

    BUT - [add sarcasm smilie] thats how they seem to work - add something that nobody wants whilst old bugs go on and on and requests that have been around for yeas are ignored
  19. addons are great BUT all those who seemed to understand how to make them seem to have left - the problems with MX5 and the thought that talking to the company was like talking to the wall sent those users elsewhere same with those who contributed themes - the difficult way to add themes being one problem - another being the state of MX5
  20. maxthon devs have always ignored users - when was the last time we saw a dev on here - all we see is bugsirs who patronise - they come and go like summer snow so have no insight into whats been asked before the bottom lines are the browser is free as are all others - if it works for you then expect no more - you can but nothing will happen Jeff talks a good story but follows nothing up - too busy with crypto-currency or whatever to dirty his hands with this place and the user base that gave him what he has long term users are leaving which is not good - input here is all but dried up - it does need a statement from Jeff or whoever but we all know that is unlikely to happen in any meaningful way apart from whoever is sitting in the bugsirs chair this week telling us that the users are important - more platitudes - we have heard it all before
  21. i dont understand their logic at the moment - seems they fix one or two bugs and release a new version - no one from here is testing anything so they must now do all testing internally and it would seem not very well

    its not rocket science - it cannot be as i can do it - its worth learning to get the skin as YOU want it

    perfectly possible to move tabs down it needs uimain.dat to be modified as Maxthon tend to change things in every build posting skin mods is painful as they only last one release usually - there is no easy way to mod skins other than mods to the file mentioned to do what you want is a matter of unpacking the file - moving one line of code and repacking the file - simple really but keeping up with their changes is the problem - the easy way - if its important to you is to learn how to do it yourself
  24. Skins for MX [Customizables]

    with respect how is it important to many people - the last skin i posted which had tabs on bottom had a grand total of one download - say again - 1 - so hardy useful to many modding skins at that level is easy enough - its certainly not rocket science - so if its important have a look at the code and learn how to do it
  25. Skins for MX [Customizables]

    might be some on chinese forum - apart from that there are not many - you could always make your own as others do
