  1. Just fine here. I think that maybe they are having server issues both times; haven't seen any changes yet.
  2. I just did a quick test and went to CBS.com, which displayed properly I assume and then clicked on Candy Crush and it began playing, originally with ABP disabled for that site, but when I turned ABP on, it still was playing as I assume it is supposed to, as I have never watched that program or used CBS.com before. Only thing that occurs to me initially is if have you updated flash in this new version? There is a utility that someone (I think 7 twenty) posted called MX Flash Updater_1.05.exe that I downloaded a little while ago that I can't seem to find on the forum right now. ( I did find this thread that talks a lot about an earlier version of the utility but the link to it is no longer found. Scroll down through the thread to see where this utility is discussed, but I wish I could find the updated version. Hopefully someone who knows where it is at will come along here. ) I use this to update the flash in every version that I install, internal, betas and finals and it works great. It also downloads the latest Flash if your system doesn't already have it and then updates the Maxthon version. I wish I could help you more with that, even if that doesn't help with your issue. But I had no issue at all with CBS.com videos, sorry. And that is without having an account or signing in.
  3. This is a brand new BETA and will most likely have some bugs or other features that don't work and is for testing at this time. Since I have never even looked at UUMail in any version since it was introduced, I am of no help to you in trying to solve the issue but thanks for reporting your findings and maybe another more familiar with the UUMail feature will be better able to address it.
  4. In order for the 3 dots to display, you have to have some icons hidden. Right click on the desired icon and choose "Hide". Of course you have to have the icons enabled first and you do that at Menu>Settings>Functions & Addons>Addons.
  5. mx5.1.0.2200-beta

    Not sure what the op, Chantao, is talking about. He headlines his post with mention of a new internal Windows version but actually talks about Android versions in his post ( and, which are not Windows versions) And just how did Windows version get onto the "extreme rip" page as it's supposed to be an internal, do-not-share release? Not sure what has been accomplished with this thread.
  6. Settings usability suggestion

    The Gestures & Shortcuts page is for mouse gestures and keyboard shortcuts, not what you are looking for. I realize that there are some inconsistencies in terminology in the settings (such as URL aliases referred to as "shortcuts" in one place and aliases in another) which leads to some confusion. But the "shortcut bar " is actually the Favorites bar and URL "shortcuts" are actually aliases, so that is why I would guess that they don't appear on the Gestures & Shortcut settings page. Just my observation.
  7. I guess I wasn't that clear on this issue, which has been happening for me with the Foxit reader for way further back that 1900 and is not related to the new Maxthon media viewer feature/bug, which I have had to deal with after a few installs. However, I didn't make enough note of this issue when I first noticed it so that I have no memory of with which release it started for me, but it still occurs with several of my billing sites when I attempt to download a billing statement. The option to integrate Foxit with Maxthon either in Foxit or Maxthon used to exist but I can't find any such option any longer in either program. I seem to recall that there was an option in Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat Reader or whatever it is being called today, to integrate it with your browser, but I no longer have that installed so I can't check to see where that might have been.
  8. I am on Win10 and use Foxit Reader and have set it as the default for many years. And in the Default Programs window as well. And when I click on a pdf file in say File Explorer or in an email, Foxit opens and displays it. But when I click on a PDF file in a browser window, say at a financial site for a statement download, it opens in the browser using the Maxthon reader. (And this has been the norm for quite a while now for me.) So, at least for me, setting my reader to be the default makes no difference in how pdf's are displayed in the Maxthon Browser and I haven't yet been able to find a setting to make it happen as I desire in either Foxit Reader or in Maxthon. Just adding my experience to this conversation. Personally, from what I read in the OP's query, he has the same problem that I experience as he has Acrobat Reader already set as his default reader for Pdf's but it doesn't work in Maxthon (though I'm not sure if he is using Adobe Acrobat or just the Acrobat Reader, which used to be called Adobe Acrobat Reader and many people still make that mistake).
  9. We all have tried and used that version but that version is a bit old and most of us have been using MX5 for some time now; first the 5.0.x series and now the 5.1.x series. Nothing wrong with using that version, but it may be hard getting help from users as it's been awhile since any have used that one and therefore not familiar with it any more to be of much help for you. Sorry that doesn't help you much but at least you know now why no one is chiming in so far.
  10. I tried minimizing to the tray and to the taskbar and both instances opens a new tab, not a new window. However, I am using a newer internal version for this test so maybe it's something that has been fixed. Try just minimizing to the taskbar instead of to the tray and see if you get the same result, at least until a new version is released. And when you do desire 2 instances of Maxthon, right click the task bar icon and select "New Window".
  11. MX5.1.0.1700 beta - crashing

    What does that mean? I have seen several use that term but it doesn't tell us just what you did. To me, to revert back would mean re-installing an older version. Is that what you did or did you still have a working installation of that you simply went and used again? Just curious how folks are installing these latest 5.1.x betas that have a different core than the 5.0.x versions.
  12. passkeeper not autofilling

    First thing I checked and it was set to Auto. Tried manual, no change, then back to auto- no effect. Changing the language hadn't occurred to me, but that had no effect either. Help page is still in Chinese. Thanks for trying to help. Will try a few other things.
  13. Well, I thought I had seen another comment thread for 1700 but I can't seem to find it so I'll comment here. I am finding that Passkeeper/Magic Fill is fully populated with my previous data but in this version I am not having anything in forms auto-filled. Right clicking and selecting fill forms works but it's not as it's supposed to work. And I also experience that it is not offering to save new log-ins and passwords. And when I attempt to manually add an item (from the drop down that comes from the ? at the right top of the screen) the entire page is in Chinese and unusable for this language deficient old man. Also I found that I can not edit the URL of a Passkeeper entry in the Edit dialog box, since I'm not asked to save the info right now. Sorry, I don't recall this issue in 1600, but I no longer have that release installed to check and see. This is the latest install version download and a clean install on a Windows 10 Home 64bit desktop system.
  14. Skins for MX5! - [Customizables]

    Thanks for your quick response. Don't know what you did, but re-downloading the file and applying the extracted files solves this issue! Thank you very much.
