  1. Please consider useful innovations.

    NO1 I don't think you realize how bad #2 would be for most users. Consider: - You're viewing a very long page - several (many) screen-fulls down the page you right-click on several interesting links and open them in new tabs - after reading these new tab pages, you click on the original tab. Do you really want to search again for your last place on that page starting from the top? <<SL>>
  2. Maxthon version numbers

    Naaahhhh,withjust8 fingers the can count to 255 in HEX, which is probably how the version is coded. But they failed that way too this time. <<SL>>
  3. gone?

    I have to wonder why it was not The new core justifies the 5.3, but NOTHING justifies 8; the build doesn't bother me. As for "disappearing," not for me; I noticed it wadn't in 'place' when was posted, but saw it immediately farther down with compromised eyesight. <<SL>>

    Not so here, now (USA, 16:39 EST). Maye it's server specific - I don't know if the same URL is routed to different servers in different regions. <<SL>>
  5. my profile

    I think you may be missing my point; instead of removing the extensions, disable them first, then close & relaunch to see if they remain disabled. If they do, then try removing them. There was an undesirable extension in the past in Maxthon that was only removable by disabling it. <<SL>>
  6. my profile

    @Ody, you may have tried this,but instead of removing the extensions, disable them. Close browser. Relaunch it. Are they enabled or disabled? If they remain disabled, then quit again and do a clean install. [I'd do this in a portable version; it's easier and you can keep the old UserData as backup. The same can also be done with the %AppData%\Roaming\Maxthon5 folder.] Now relaunch. Do the extensions remain disabled or are they gone? If gone, you're home free. If not gone, but still disabled, remove them, quit, then relaunch. Did they remain removed? If not, but disabled, I'm out of any more steps; but they are just disabled clutter. I got this idea from recalling some years ago (don't remember whether Mx4 or Mx 4.9, or Mx5) there was an undesirable extension which could be removed only by disabling it. Then it wouldn't sync again. I hope this resolves your problem at least partially. <<SL>>
  7. Which Version Is coming soon ?

    @Chantao: Where is this in Mx I'm running the portable version, if that is significant. Thanks in advance <<SL>>
  8. Which Version Is coming soon ?

    Well I've been waiting for some time for completion of full mx5skin support. It's half-done at this point. However, I don't have any hints that it's likely the next version. To answer the original post, the next version should be 5.2.7.x, where x > 100. <<SL>>
  9. my profile

    I've often wondered when does syncung in Mx5 happen? 10 Immediately afterachage ismade? 2) Or when the browser closes? 3) Or both? WillMx5 "up-sync" after a change is made and one opens Maxnote and clicks the Sync button? <<SL>>
  10. I ask the feature 3rd time !

    Yhereis already an option which I have enabled but have forgotten, that keeps the browser open when I close the last tab. It just presents "Newtab", which is QA in my case. I can still mistakenly close the last tab I'm using, but it's easily recovered with "Reopen recently closed sites"button. No more effort to correct a mistake than to agree/disagree with a confirmation notice. <<SL>>
  11. I'm disappointed

    Thak you! <<SL>>
  12. I'm disappointed

    Why not post and pin the 'skin file' in this board so all interested can try their hand? Just wondering what's the holdup? <<SL>>
  13. I ask the feature 3rd time !

    yES, i DID NOT SEE ANY HINT OF REQUESTING AN INDIVIDUAL "bolse tab" confirmation similar to the "do you want to close all tabs?" confirmation when you close the browser with Multiple open tabs. tHANKS FOR THHE CLARIFICATION. <<sl>>
  14. I ask the feature 3rd time !

    Why not use the Close button ('X' icon) on the tab you want to close. Or you can go to MainMenu>Settings>General>Close Tab amd choose double-click or right-click to close the tab you want closed. Further, if you want the ACTIVE tab closed, there is a gesture to close it. With all these ways why add yet another way? Hope this helps you set up a way that works in your use of Maxthon. <<SL>>
  15. Hello NaxthonJeff and a happy new year.

    I have been wondering two things about *.mx5skins:

    1) Isn't it time to post the mx5skin SDK tutorial in the public Skin Forum here, so that others can make use of it?


    2) How about finishing the skin maker so that mods can be made to both UIMain.dat and UIHuge.dat (and even page.dat for some skin makers)?  I'd be OK with just UIMain/UIHuge mods, since I've not ventured into page.dat mods, though I have used some in Mx4 days.

    That's it for now.  I really hope to see complete mx5skin support finished.

    Have a good day,


  16. Hi MaxthonFan,

    I've been wondering if it's not time to post the *.mx5skin tool kit and tutorial in the public Skin Forum?  Are further developments in the works ?

    I know some skin makers (e.g., Yoyoako) in yhe Chinese Forum have made some, but I don't see any tutorial updates other than a title change and a replacement tutorial on that forum.

    Unfortunately, I've not been able to successfully log onto their new 3/4-part authetification scheme; I can't pass the captcha step. 

    Let me know what you think, please.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Have a happy New Year.


    1. No.1MaxthonFan


      I don't know it it is really worth it.  Remember the one guy we had doing skins? He got so bombed out by people just keeping asking for small changes to his skins and then insulting him when they didn't get what they wanted and Maxthon changing everything so that all his efforts didn't work anymore. I guess if the instructions were a little bit easier, more people could do their own skins but people now-a-days want just a couple of clicks to change things and since that isn't going to happen they get tired of asking.

      If the skin makers over in the Chinese forum would post their skins here so that we could just download and install that would be fantastic, but I don't think they will.  We can ask the Bugs and see what they say.

  17. That error sounds familiar. In the last few versions of portable Maxthon, when using a prior UserData, I wouls see an error message dialog with that error and "LOGON: and "LATER" buttons. At first I hesitated, thinking it might ve a virus. But eventually, I ignored the dialog, but renamed UserData as a backup and did a clean run with a new login and sync. That ckeared the dialog and it hasn't occurred again. However, I didn't connect this message with a proxy, which is "Use IE setting". <<SL>>
  18. SIMPLICITY skin (support 5.3.8 version)

    @Subgoku: Any chanceyou might update this to 5.2.5.x/5.2.6.x? <<SL>>
  19. Small fonts on some pages

    There was a new option added in MainMenu>Settings>Advanced>Web Page Display called Page Font Size. The default is "Medium but theree's a problem with recognition of this setting initially, so pages display ultra-tiny (fonts and images). You can correct it by changing "Medium" from that to another setting and back to Medium. Easier is to click "Set to Default" button. I think this is good for a Mx5 session, but may need repeating each time you launch until a fix is made - inconvenient to be sure. <<SL>>
  20. Small fonts on some pages

    Perhaps you missed the update in settings adding font size oreference in MainMenu>settings>Advanced>Fonts. It is in the Change Log. I did recall that when I ran into extremely tiny fonts on Clicking "Reset to Default" clears the problem and it has been permanent since then. <<SL>>
  21. Download mp4 video BUTTON on youtube

    YouTube Center is discontiued and no longer works with YT's new interface. <<SL>>
  22. Skins for MX [Customizables]

    Re: Normal? Yes it has always been possible that the skin might fail on a later version due to changes and new features. You're using, bit the skin is for I don't know whether such changes occured between these versions. If you didn't backup or rename UIMain.dat and UIHuge.dat and if you used it) the start folder im Maxthon (or Maxthon_Portable\bin\, then you'll have to re-install (or re-unzip) to recover those files and folder. If you have backups, just replace those files from your backups. <<SL>>
  23. Both of these show up in Global filters and each one separately in and domains. I deleat themwhenever they happen to reappear, usually noticed after several updates. <<SL>>
  24. adguard

    I am puzzled by Adguard adblocker extension ... specifically how does one ad a custom filter subscription. There is a substantial listing of variations of EasyList and of other specialized list, but I cannot find and where to ad a subscription other than the ones listed. There is provision to add custom rules one by one. Surely there must be a way to add whole lists by subscription. Any help? <<SL>>
  25. Arowana skin

    If I read Zork correctly, Arowana skin is Snapper adapted for MX5 with lessons learned from Snapper. @Zork, did I read you correctly? It's not identical of course because MX4 * MX4 are different. I like it but I want tabs under the navbar & favbar. But I can do that trivial change. <<SL>>
