  1. NoAds
    It was unofficial port for MX, but because of old bug of Chromium it could break the browser. So the developer removed it from Extensions Center. But than someone upload it again and now you can use it. But if you will add "full lists" it may break all pages (white field instead of content).

    Thank you all! I have sent the extension to them. :Smiling_Face_Emoji_with_Blushed_Cheeks_42x42:

    Sum up:

    • RoboForm was developed by SiberSystem
    • RoboForm.mxaddon was upload to Extension Center by Roman Gravit
    • Roman Gravit used email @siber.com, so he probably worked there (and his Facebook profile confirm this)
    • It means that RoboForm for Maxthon is probably official add-on
    • They both responded to messages: RoboForm - via Twitter, Roman - via Facebook.

    So they know about situation and probably they will connect with Maxthon Team.
    But maybe I could give them links to someone from Maxthon Team on Facebook or Twitter (Lizzie or Jeff)?

    P.S.
    By the way, the website works, but you shoud use siber.com/index instead of siber.com

    Here is his e-mail address:   roman.gravit@siber.com

    This website is dead already...
    But I think I found his profile. Maybe this is other man with the same name, but I'll try to talk with him.

    If you can reach this author please help let him/her know.

    I wrote about this on Twitter, RoboForm replied. Can I give them link to someone from MX Team? 
    Or you can try to do the same and write to RoboForm on Twitter or Facebook.

    I thought you could get his email from MX Passport. Nope?
    Not the fact that it was an official port. Usually things like this are made by fanboys from China or Russia/CIS.

    The dev team has tested, it won't track request from Maxthon browser, and these aren't official extensions.

    Did Lonely Atom delete tracking scripts or just use old safe version?
    Or this method of tracking just does not work on Maxthon?


  6. What's up, guys? 
    As you probably know, my new interests are privacy and security. And today I have a bad new for you...
     

    According to Robert Heaton's note, popular extension Stylish steals all your internet history:

    Quote

    Since January 2017 for Chrome and since January 2017 for Firefox, Stylish has been augmented with bonus spyware that records every single website that you and its 2 million other users visit. Stylish sends our complete browsing activity back to its servers, together with a unique identifier. This allows it’s new owner, SimilarWeb, to connect all of an individual’s actions into a single profile. SimilarWeb own a copy of our complete browsing histories and they also own enough other data to theoretically tie these histories to email addresses and real-world identities.


    I have a lot of questions:

    1. Is Stylish for Maxthon official?
      Here're not so many official extensions and ports. I know olny three: LastPass, VKOpt and AdBlock Plus. Other extensions in most cases are unofficial ports from funboys. Is Stylish too?
      Add-on was uploaded by one of users from China - 寂寞的原子 (Lonely Atom). He made many cool exnetsions for Maxthon. Who is he? Can we talk to him?
    2. Is spying update relevant for Maxthon?
      Last update of mxaddon was in January 2018. Does this mean that users of Stylish for Maxthon  take risks too?
      Because if Lonley Atom used old version of Stylish, it may be still safe. Not a fact, but we have a chance.
    3. Are Chrome and Firefox issues relevant for Maxthon?
      Maxthon is closed browser. That's why many third-party developers don't want to work with Maxthon. Maybe changes happened on Chrome could not be repeated on Maxthon.
      Now we need someone from MX Team to check it.


    P. S.

    I've seen mention of Stylish changes thrice, so it's probably true...
    I'm not sure that it's relevant for Maxthon too. So don't panic!
    Maybe it's false alarm... But I think you should know this...

  7. Hi. guys! I had to write about this many week ago, but...

    What's wrong with Extensions Center? Does it work?
    I tried to write reply, but I can not add new comment. Just white screen and nothing more.
    I hoped it's temporary, but it still does not work for me.

    Now I hope MX Team just preparing big update for Extensions Center and they have no reason to fix old bugs.
    Because we really need new Extensions Center: with notification and developer's pages.
    Now feedback is broken...

  8. I'll just put it in here...
    This is the reason why now I'm not worried about Maxthon changes. They changed target audience. Old users don't like it, but it's OK. And maybe this is really right step for company (not for us, but globally this's not so important).
    Если нужен перевод на русский, найти его можно здесь.

    P.S.
    1. BTW, comments on Extensions Center don't work. I can't reply and can't write rewiew.
    2. If YouTube Center works on other browsers, the script may work on Maxthon too. Try to contact with developer or just use ViolentMonkey.

  9. What about http://extension.maxthon.com/server/go.php?guid=GUID links?

    Maxthon used this as permanent links to add-on pages: if add-on is available on Extensions Center, this page will be opened.
    This is "Details" in old versions of MX (MX3, MX4 and MX4.9), these links worked in any browsers. But today it does not work.

    Is this temporary troubles? 
    Because I used thes links as feedback in my extensions and not it does not work for me. 
    Should I remove Rate and Rewiew from my add-ons?

    As you need examples:

    Some of UserScripts are not suitable to port for Maxthon addons. They sometimes request some dependencies or API calls (like GM_* stuffs). And they also have their update mechanism. Here is the reason why ViolentMonkey is the essential to do that. You cannot maintain this extension even If you get a help.

    I think I fixed it. I'm not sure, but maybe...
    I'll make update and maube in will help.

    I just add excludes to def,json:

    		"exclude": [
    			"*.gooogle.com",
    			"google.com",
    			"*mail.google.com",
    			"mail.google.com"]

    UPD:
    Bad news. I fixed GMail issue only, but not other Google services...


  11. Hi, guys!

    I made SaveTube for MX, but honestly I don't know how it works. I just took the script and write that it have to be runned when page is loaded. There are list with websites where script have to be runned, but there is not any *.google.com sites. So I have no idea why it happens. But I test original script with ViolentMonkey and had the same result: page realods when I try to open new folder, but not "again and agian" as someone wrote, only once.

    Sebaro know about issue. He showed me the post with issue description. But he use Linux and can not test MX extension.

    So we know that this is problem of interaction between the script and browser. But we don't know the reason. 
    In def.json I used these includes:

    	"actions": [{
    		"type": "script", 
    		"entryPoints": ["doc_end"],
    		"include": [
    			"*.youtube.com",
    			"youtube.com",
    			"*.dailymotion.com",
    			"dailymotion.com",
    			"*.vimeo.com",
    			"vimeo.com",
    			"*.metacafe.com",
    			"metacafe.com",
    			"*.break.com",
    			"break.com",
    			"*.funnyordie.com",
    			"funnyordie.com",
    			"*.veoh.com",
    			"veoh.com",
    			"*.viki.com",
    			"viki.com",
    			"*.imdb.com",
    			"imdb.com",],
    		"js": ["script.js"],
    		}]

    In original SaveTube script:

    // @include		http://youtube.com*
    // @include		http://www.youtube.com*
    // @include		https://youtube.com*
    // @include		https://www.youtube.com*

    As I undestand, it mead that script or addon works on these websites only. There are not any *.google.com 
    @Chantao was the first who wrote about this, and he did it July, 29. But I last SaveTube.mxaddon update was July, 2. 
    Does it mean that all worked OK a few weeks? Maybe this is really problems of browser update?

    And I am still not sure that I understood you correctly. I made too many extensions to use all of these and I don't use MX as default anymore. So I am not sure that I understand what problem have other user. Maybe someone can make video with issue? I can send it to Sebaro.

    And what about Maxthon Team and real developers?
    Today we really need help. Because I'm not developer, I'm just user. I don't know how it works.
    I even have no idea how these script and extension can broke other website.

    Other post with this issue:

     

    UPD:
    I added some excludes to def.json:

    		"exclude": [
    			"*.gooogle.com",
    			"google.com",
    			"*.google.*",
    			"google.*",
    			"*mail.google.com",
    			"mail.google.com"]

    And now GMail issue is solved.
    But I noticed the same reloading on YouTube and Google Maps.
    I can not fix it for YouTube (because SaveTube have to works on Youtube) and Google Maps (because Google use different domains for different countries)
    The simplest solution is just add to excludes all websites where you have this trouble. 

    So where?

    P.S.
    I still don't know how it works and I need advice from developers.

    Please go through SDK first and if you have questions, feel free to post them here.

    But what about MX5 tollbar icons? There are no SDK update, but today you use icon_32 if I don't write something else.

    I would like to develop an add-on that would change for ever how we use to save our bookmarks. The problem is i can't access neither to download the sdk neither the guides. Any help ?

    Finally, someone who understands what he's doing!
    Bad news: there are not so many people, who understand how this browser works...


  14. Today I would like to talk about serious issue... 
    So this post is addressed to the Maxthon Team and real true gangsta MLG add-on developers, who really understand how this magic work.

    In the times of MX3 we had AdHunter. It was a simple, but effective advertising filter. It had two big problems only:

    • it does not have regional lists
    • you could not block ads manually (untill latest versions)

    So some user (I know nick only and nothing more) make NoAds. It was a port from popular add-on for old Opera. There was regional lists and manual blocking, but... Because of some bug in Chromium code it did not work if you tried to use full lists. So... There were times when NoAds worked not so well and could even "break" browser: if you tried to use full lists you see empty white pages only and only deleting of folder with extension data solved the probmel. MX users don't like to read and so many people asked about this, that developer removed NoAds from Extensions Center. After a few months or years someone upload NoAds in Extensions Center again. I'm not sure that it was real developer, but today NoAds is available again.

    We saw that MX Team make some changes in MX5 to achieve better compatibility with some popular extensions. And I think that NoAds can really be usefull extension for many users, but I'm not sure that it works OK in MX5. I'm not sure that this is MX problem, maybe only Google can do something with this. But someone should look on this extension. Because there is manual blocking, but it's not exist in ABP.

    Alternative is always good!

    Our designer and chief technician are discussing the standard now, they will draw a new one and will be published on forum and extension center in future.

    And we will have to change icons sizes in every extension what was be uploaded in Extensions Center from 2010. Great!
    Why do you break something that worked fine everytime when you release new browser? You broke toolbar icons (and all extensions with toolbar menu), skins and transparent sidebar icons (it works with some skins) when released MX4 in 2012. Some of these was not have not been returned until now! It mean that MX3 was better! And now you break toolbar icons, sidebar favorites, transparent sidebar icons (again), etc. Cool!
    You browser becames better and better... But MX3 had more!

    So I did another thing, to read the extension SDK file, which is quite beyond my ability as a person almost know nothing about programming.

    Read this. Take every MX stuff who don't know anything about mxaddons, choose mobile version of any popular Chinese website and make simple addon for sidebar panel.

    The third icon - Ecosia - has icon 20x20

    4 hours ago, BugSir006 said:

    From these two pics, I cannot say which row is clearer or blurrier than the other one. So I suppose Maxthon may not have changed the standard? But this is not enough since your picture is so clear showing. 

    Really? Don't you blur of the second icon? Don't you really understand why? Just use screenshot tool, press Ctrl+F1 and make accurate screenshot and you will see that this is about 20x20. ABP icon is 19x19 as I remember. So you take 16x16 icons and stretched it to 20x20. This is 25%!

    icon SDK.png

    As far as I understand that, every creator needs to upload 3 different sized icons for the computer choose to show in the right place. So it will choose the right sized one to avoid blurring and make it fit automatically? Or machine cannot be that smart? Am I understanding it correctly?

    MX use 48x48 for Extensions Center, 32x32 for sidebar and extensions settings page and 16x16 for toolbar. If MX does not find the icon, other size will be used. But it will look awful. It's the first. The second: if you use toolbar menu, you can not write "icon": "toolbar.png" for toolbar icon, MX still will use icon_16 or other icon_XX. 

    4 hours ago, BugSir006 said:

    These two tests still cannot solve my confusion, why the others show clear while your newly developed is blurred?

    You need old extensions with icon_16 = 16p. Just look on icons in MX4 and MX5. 4 points is very many if we talk about 16 points. This is 25%!
    Use 16x16 for extensions and 20x20 for your tools if you want. Now you kill all old extensions!

    Does not matter why you did it. Does not metter what will you do to solve the issue.
    Old extensions look disgusting for all MX5 users now. All new extensions will look disgusting for all MX4 and MX3 users if we will just change icons size to 20x20. 
    You don't have third-part developers. You have 3K extensions after so many years. And now you break. You could do it... if you warned about it for several months and if you would explain the reasons!

    Make svg icons.  

    This is 177 addons. Nope.
    And if they will make "use .svg" an "official guide", will sound stupid: Exnetsions Center works OK with .png only and show gray gear (as with no icons) for other files. It have to work with one type of files.

    MX5 was released many months ago and no one warned about it!
    I'm almost sure that MX can take all skins and all extensions developer and сollect them all in one room. And all MX problems because they don't think how other devs have to work with their browser. They never will have ocean of developers and when they will make Skins Center, there will be about 5-10 men who can really do something cool, other will upload standart skins with new background. This is Maxthon in its best!


  18. I really hate MX at such moments! 
    You took something that worked fine and broke it! Again! And we can not fix it, because if we make well-defined icons for MX5, it will be blurred for MX4. But well-defined icons for MX4 anyway will be blurred in MX5. You did it! With no reason! Just because you made bigger UI in MX5. Great! Did we really need it?!

    What we have to do? Just wait when you do something? Maybe you can solve the issue as you did when add toolbar in MX4 for example. Or you will never do something and we have to change icon_16 size to 20p? Do you remember how many addons are these? I will not do it! I spent two days on simple expansion and minor updates! Because of toolbar icons only! Why? For what?
