  1. why would you trust your passwords to a browser or the cloud - there is secure software that is far better that is all saved on YOUR system
  2. if there is no option to hide it - have not checked then it needs a mod to the skin to get rid of it
  3. V 5.1.4.800 - MultiErrors

    realise that - my point being that there should be a way to switch off the server side and do it all locally
  4. V 5.1.4.800 - MultiErrors

    which raises the question is it possible - to set password storage locally - if not why not
  5. also sorted out the certificate error for me but broke noads so not a lot of good for me
  6. How to change skins on maxthon5

    i think the max width is hard coded - its certainly possible to change settings to reduce the tab width from that set but altering those same settings to a lager number has no effect so i think you are stuck wit what they have as a max
  7. do you have it - i doubt its a big mod but i cannot log in over there so cannot download it - easier to look at their code to see how they did it than start from scratch - JarC did it on MX3 but his skins and therefor the code is long gone
  8. it should be possible to do what you want but you will have to do it or find a skin - Maxthon seem to have no interest in skins other than the stock one supplied - they have not implemented any easy method to add 3rd party skins in MX5 - what we have now is a workaround
  9. Why is the extension review process so slow?

    i raised this elsewhere and Jeff commented - i thought it would have been resolved but obviously not - read into that what you want
  10. MX5 PC Official Release 5.1.2.3000

    no word if this solves the history problem and if it will bring back the lost entries
  11. there used to be a system where updates were posted early in a private section for testing - for reasons known only to Maxthon they seem to have abandoned that - the section and testers still exist but no new versions have been posted there for quite a while - they speak of testers who i assume test versions before release - who and where they are is unknown - they dont seem to catch much if they infact exist the history thing being a case in point - seems to be just one rushed version after the last one with little or no regard to users
  12. will ideas and suggestions made on there be looked at differently to those suggested and voted on on here in general they get platitudes from staff and then ignored
  13. not looked at history - not something i use - i lost last session but when i went back to an earlier version it came back - re-open 2000 and its gone so it looks like its still all there but this version is not seeing it maybe the same with history - try going back to an earlier version see if its still there
  14. MX5 PC Official Release 5.1.2.2000

    a skin - my own skin in MX5 - achieved by mods to the 3 dat files - as wilser and others post here - by blind updating you override these files for your own - users should have a choice as they may not have backups in the same way the update overwrote files in the user dir - this resulted in my saved tabs being deleted - again something you should give choice on
  15. MX5 PC Official Release 5.1.2.2000

    not good enough - sorry - i run my own skin which involved mods to 3 dat files - you delete these to add your own - security or no security problem you should not ride roughshod overs users choice - that is not your function if you have a problem then flag it with a notification or email to users - deleting a setup and modding a config file is not yours to do like i said - keep the hell out of my system - even Microsoft give choice when it comes to updates - what makes you so special that you override users wishes
  16. MX5 PC Official Release 5.1.2.2000

    what have you changed - i have never had an auto update - this morning Maxthon had updated over night - i dont want that - i want to do it manually - you managed to delete some files i had in the maxthon main dir and modified the config file in users NOT IMPRESSED keep the hell out of my system - i will decide if i want to update - not you
  17. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    excellent job on the user bar - much better that the Maxthon offering
  18. Maxthon with no quick access hack

    its the popup wanting to generate a password - so just go to any site that needs a password - click on the password box and up pops the annoying popup - does not matter if you have your own password set it still pops up - would be great to get rid of it
  19. Maxthon with no quick access hack

    like this - can you do the same to stop the annoying password box flashing up when a password is needed
  20. The size of MX5 toolbar icons

    i suspect its lack of continuity of staff and poor communication - just as the bugs change here on a regular basis i would guess the devs have a high turnover - so whilst they can program they start with a clean sheet of paper each time and do whatever they want with little detailed reference backwards
  21. Maxthon 3/4 Skin SDK v1.1.17 (English Version)

    what do you mean they are NOT skins - joe with 2 hats thinks they are - as to the rest of it i dont think its going to happen - prove me wrong Jeff - but the skin centre died with 3 - i think the devs agree with Joe - what we have is it
  22. i have no idea apart from in the new UI they seem to do something similar in index and layout.htm - the latter is called in the former - have a look in there it may help - its simple so i would guess you have tried that
  23. Don't run script on mxaddon:// page

    be surprised then i have no idea to the answer but as a suggestion could you jut not alter the code so its corrupt - miss something out or something like that - would that stop the extension running or just give an error code
  24. How to add MX4 Skins to MX5 V5.03.900 beta

    it does indeed which is why i said i think their definition of a skin is different to yours and mine - in MX4 you could do what they have added to 5 - many call that a skin - its not - well not imo but you will have to wait for an official answer
  25. How to add MX4 Skins to MX5 V5.03.900 beta

    good question - not looked deeply but i think their definition of a skin is different from what you and i might think - you can change the background colour and/or change same background to one of a few defined pictures - it may be possible to add your own picture but i think? thats it - if so its all in the definition - MX4 skins are different things and i cannot see it being possible to add those to MX5
