  1. Opening new tab

    Is there a way to middle click on a link/bookmark only if you want it open in a new ACTIVE / FOREGROUND tab? I middle click to open a link/bookmark in a new tab but the new tab is not active or in the foreground. Because you may or may not want links/bookmarks to open in new active tabs depending on the situation. Thanks. When I select "Open new tab in foreground" in the Settings, there's no control as to which links will open in a new tab. With this method, way too many links open in new tabs which is undesirable.
  2. I just reimported my favorites and now I must click on EACH folder including the folders buried layers down and change each view to LIST VIEW in Maxnote. Is there an easy way to display ALL favorites and folders in List View with a single click? Thanks so much.
  3. Using MX5, I'm unable to save Gmail/Google login info to Passkeeper. When I attempt to login to Google, MNX5 does not ask to save the login info. I also try to 'Save Form" but this two step login process does not save correctly to Passkeeper. If I click to Edit the Google Passkeeper info, the password is present but the Account is blank which cannot be manually added. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  4. With MX5, every time I click on the Star button to show my Favorites menu, immediately I get a login dialogue box asking for a username and password for certain favorites which are located in the top level of the favorites menu. The favories are for network devices like router, etc which require login info to access the page. Why are these dialogue boxes even popping-up if I do not directly click on the specific favorite. Thanks so much.
  5. Thanks so much, Bugsir006: This is a merely a favorite of my LAN Router:
  6. I cannot edit the URL/link in the favorite; otherwise it won't work. Even if you change the location of these favorites to a lower level in the Favorites, as soon as you mouseover the folder where they are located, the login dialogue boxes popup. In my case, these are favorites of LAN devices which I don't need access frequently, so burrying them deep in my favorites menu tree is the best workaround I can figure at the moment. Also, speaking of the Favorites menu, are we ever going to see the addition of Separators to visually divide favorite items? When importing my favorites from Firefox to MX5, sadly, all of the Separators are dropped.
  7. Seems that if favories menu contains any website that requires login information (in a login popup dialoge box before you can view thew website) has this issue.
  8. Thanks. I did try this but it fails to populate the fields the next time I login.. I'll try it again. Thanks so much. No. It's not working for me. I even tried "Save form" each after entering the username and password. Still no luck. If cookies are not cleared, when I revisit Google, it asks to "Choose an account" I select the account and in the next field, the PW field is blank. (If cookies are cleared, this fails to fill-in both the UN and PW.)
  9. Thanks so much for the replies: I did as BugSir006 illustrated, however there is no CACHED_LINK_PID or CACHED_LINK_ID. I see CACHED_MAIN_PID and CACHED_MAIN_ID. See attached screenshot; notice the 3 errors on the bottom. This was occuring on a brand new portable install of MX5 and at that time, I never used my Passport account. This was strictly Guest. But since seeing this error, I tried the Passport account and reverted back to Guest.
  10. I installed a new version of MX5 ( and tinkered with the settings with on the Guest account until I got it pretty much set. Is there a way to transfer these Guest settings to my Passport account? I never used my Passport account and now I would like to try it. I tried to copy/paste the files from the Guest folder in UserData to my email folder(Passport) but it caused a malfunction of the browser. Thanks so much.
  11. Thanks so much for the quick reply! Trying it now.
  12. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Thanks so much Tony. I know there's a minimum tab width of 16dip in main\tabbar\container.css but that's the minimum width before tabs are crunched-down before they start running off the page and start scrolling. Other than that, I haven't noticed anything. EDIT: If anyone can add any additional info on how to increase the tab width, it will be greatly appreciated. In my opinion, the default tab width is not wide enough. Why make the default tab width so small when there are no or a couple of additional tabs on the tabbar? Waste of space. Most of the website names are so truncated on these tabs, it's hard to make them out.
  13. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Thanks again for the help. I increased all numbers in @const TAB_MAX_WIDTH: 184dip;(contants.css) and both sets of maxTabWidth = 220,232 (skin.ini). As a matter of fact, I removed all of these lines from the .css and .ini and there's still no change in tab width. The tab width seems to be specified from somewhere else. In Firefox, I don't think that was me. I have tabs on top and then the nav bar with address bar below that and then I use the fav bar. Thx.
  14. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Thanks for the reply. My constants.css in UIMain reads @const TAB_MAX_WIDTH: 184dip; and my tab is about 2.125 inches where it should be 1.92 inches but I'm trying to make it wider. (My firefox tabs are about 3" wide and start shrinking when I have more than 6 tabs across.) However, when I change the @const TAB_MAX_WIDTH: 184dip; to say 280dip the tab width is unaffected. Thank you. EDIT: The TAB_MAX_WIDTH is referenced 3 times in UIMain\main\tabbar\container.css and I also tried changing them each to 280dip from @TAB_MAX_WIDTH but still no effect.
  15. How to change skins on maxthon5

    I'm pretty much done with my skin customization. The only thing I still cannot find is to increase the standard width of the tabs. When it's completed, I'll post my .dat files to the skin section.
  16. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Thank you. I'm getting there. I just found, to change the tabbar color: UIMain\main\index.css background-color: #d1ddef;
  17. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Yes. I stand corrected with the constants.css. I didn't have the default skin selected. After selecting the default blue maxthon skin, I can now change the colors. Thx. Still looking for a way to make the default tab size larger.
  18. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Thank you so much. I thought I tried these and it had no effect. As a matter of fact, I think I removed the entire constants.css or some of it (can't remember because I tried so many things) and it had very little effect on the colors. I'll retry these however. Thanks. EDIT: If I remember correctly, changing @const TAB_ACTIVE_BG and @const TAB_BG in the mx4 user.dat did change the colors. I'll go back and mess around again this evening. Thx
  19. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Thanks. I'll give it a shot.
  20. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Thanks. It was easy to manipulate the mx3 and mx4 user.dat but now I'm lost. It doesn't help that I was away from maxthon for a while. I managed to adjust a few things like removing the 'x' from the active tab, spreading-out the items on the fav bar, and removing the black window border. I made the text and favicons on the inactive tabs full opacity, and enlarged the text on both the tabs and address bar. But changing the colors of the tabbar and active/inactive tabs and toolbar are a mystery as well as making the default tab wider.
  21. How to change skins on maxthon5

    You can change the skin by clicking the t-shirt icon in the tab bar, but it only changes the overall color. I wish there was a way to change seperate elements of the browser. I've spent hours trying to get a dark (near black) tab bar with a near white active tab and tool bar with SLIGHTLY darker (from near white) inactive tabs. Nothing crazing. Simple but seems like an impossibility. Right now, with the default MX5 skin, there's hardly no visual separation in the inactive tabs and the text in the inactive tabs are way too light. Also, the tabs aren't wide enough in my opinion. They should be another .25" to .375" wider.
  22. I have a filter set for my homepage. When I start maxthon, why is this filtered hompage refreshing again after it loads completely. I also notice the the Adblock plus takes a few secs to load. When I launch MX, the Adblock plus shows an off status then after a few seconds, enables itself. Is this why my homepage is refreshing itself again?? My fiilters where working wonderfully before maxthon intergrated AdBlock. is there a way to disable AdBlock and go back to AdHunter? Thanks.
  23. BugSir005 replied at 2015-3-10 00:47 HI,jseeley, It's caused by ABP initialization. ABP launched slowly than browser, when initializati ... Sounds great! Thanks!
  24. I guess I was correct in the first place. When AdBlock Plus is not enabled, the double refreshing no longer occurs on your homepage. If ABP is enabled, your homepage will get the annoying double load. That is whether you have your homepage filtered or not. Also, websites that I filtered with AdHunter no longer work correctly with ABP with those same filters. This version seems to have a lot of bugs.
  25. I get a few popups like this with each clean install of MX. I'm running Win7pro and I looked for the folder that Imanerd described but can't find it. I'll look again when I get home from work. Thanks guys.
