  1. New UI design in 5.1.4.1700

    I read this as click+hold in the tab background to drag the entire window around the desktop -- this has been a feature for ages of ages and a day. I think but haven't confirmed it that this is because the tabbar has always been in the caption area of the frame. <<SL>>
  2. ghost tabs

    @BugSir006 - to reproduce follow my directions here (#3): This is on Win7 with portable Mx 5.1.4.1700 beta. <<SL>>
  3. ghost tabs

    Correction; I found a recipe to produce this "ghost" effect: 1. Set up a sequence of tabs like this: | New tab | Maxthon tab | Maxthon tab | New tab | nMaxthon Tab | YouTube tab | 2. Now close the tabs from right to left noting what happens when tab 4 (New tab) is closed. 3. The New tab QA jumps to the 3rd tab. Clicking back and forth between tabs 2 and 3 does nothing. 4. However, clicking tab1 (New tab) followed by tab 3 restores the web page. Note this is consistant with closing the New tab. So the problem is confirmed. <<SL>> .
  4. ghost tabs

    @Ody - I can't reproduce this in my portable version. Are you using the installer version? What's the recpe for making it occur? <<SL>>
  5. Suggestion - avatar on main UI

    I don't know why, but my avatar does not display on the QA page. There'a blank white square where I think it should be. It displays fine in MainMenu. <<SL>>
  6. Same fonctions in many places

    Not confusing at all. Wherever you are these functions are close at hand. Just decide which location you want to use and forget the others. I ignore Maxnote and Notes, but haven't definitely decided between navbar and sidebar favorites, while tening toward the navbar. <<SL>>
  7. 5.1.4.1700 - address bar

    OK, I knew that one. Just misunderstood and was search for something else. <<SL>>
  8. 5.1.4.1700 - address bar

    The right button in the searchbox only executes a search. The left button has the list of search engins, but there's no "search on top frame" option. I'm puzzled; did I misunderstand what you meant? <<SL>>
  9. 5.1.4.1700 - some elements too small

    The tabbar is 32dip high as is the wincontrols div; the navbar height and its button item height is 34dip; the statusbar height is a calculated min-intrinsic height (based on its contents); the font size is 11dip but the icon size is 14dip, so the statusbar cannot be less than 14dip high, probably ~16dip (1/6 inch). The statusbar heighht is finally right even with vision problems. <<SL>>
  10. New tab is slow loading

    OK, thanks for the video clip. I see the arrow you're refering to, but it's just for the QA / NewTab not webpages. Not really vay significant since there are many other ways availably for all tabs not only NewTabs. <<SL>>
  11. 5.1.4.1700 - some elements too small

    I have vision problems too AMD (with one eye peripheral-only and the other held in stasis) so I sympathize. However I have long felt that tabbar,navbar abd statuebar were too tall. Finally the status bar is right height. The sidebar has also reached acceptable width. Now my focus is on reducing the tabbar and navbar heights. I am hoping that full skins with an easy loading function like Mx4 had return with this framework refinement. That would make it easier for accomadating the MX5 UI to various vision needs. <<SL>>
  12. 5.1.4.1700 YOUTUBE NOT WORKING

    Same for me ... no problems on YT. @22518361: You mentioned "clean update." Did you dp a clean install? Big difference sometimes, maybe this time. <<SL>>
  13. New tab is slow loading

    What arrow? I don't see any arrow in the UI framework when the sidebar is hidden. Maybe you should provide a screenshot to show the arrow. <<SL>>
  14. MX5 Quick Access and New Tab behavior

    Not confirmed here. The QA searchbar (in the portable 5.1.4.1700) has the full list of search engines and I can freely change them. Perhaps the installer version has a problem that the portable does not. Sorry I don't have any troubleshooting ideas now. <<SL>>
  15. 5.1.4.1700 - address bar

    The addressbar retains its search function for me, but you're right that we cannot switch search engins in it. However you can switch engine in the Settings, searchbax, and the QA searchbox. So switching search engines in the addressbar only makes the function quadruplly redundant, It appears that aliases may work, thpugh the ones listed are full words not abbreviations. <<SL>>
