  1. Beta releases

    All public releases are found under Welcome>Maxthon News on this forum. Unless you have access to the Early Access Area, all you will ever see are public betas posted on the public forum at this location. And I have been a core member and tester since 2004, and the browser has never notified me concerning the newest beta releases; only releases deemed final. Betas are always only obtained through the forum, whether internal or public. You can also get the release info from the "Release Notes tab" on the forum home page at the top of the page where you find Forum, Product Support, Activity, and Release Notes tabs to click on. You don't really sound as though you have been much of a forum beta tester if you don't know about any of this. The only way I have always been kept abreast of new releases and what's going on is to visit this forum several times every day.
  2. Invalid SSL for mail.google.com

    Thanks for the response. I downloaded the new "version" of 5.1.3.200 beta and installed it into the same folder as the original and indeed the certificate problem I had also been having for the last week or so is no longer there. Guess they did make some changes to the original before public release. I haven't used NOAds for some time so I can not confirm or deny your problem with that extension, Tony. Sorry I'm not of any help.
  3. Invalid SSL for mail.google.com

    This is also still happening for me with the latest internal test version (5.1.3.200) so I don't think that trying the newest beta will solve it either, unless of course you made some changes from the internal release and the public release. I'll download and install latest version.
  4. The only question I have is why did you take all of that time uninstalling Maxthon4? Maxthon 5 installs into a different folder and creates it's own data folder in the Roaming folder called Maxthon5. Maxthon4 used the Maxthon3 folder in the same Roaming folder location. And if you had a working passport account, there is no "horror stories" about importing and exporting your favorites; you sync your passport once MX5 is installed. MX4 and MX5 can both be installed on the same computer without interfering with each other and you can choose which one you want to use: they just can't be opened at the same time.
  5. You haven't been using Maxthon 5 for 10 years as it's only been around for less than 5 years; before that there was Maxthon 4 (cloud browser) and Maxthon 3 (first dual core browser). I have found when dealing with pdf's, I click the link that opens the pdf in Maxthon. I then click on the download arrow in upper right corner. This opens the pdf again in Maxthon. But when I click on the download arrow a second time, it open in Foxit Reader, my default pdf reader. Not the ideal solution, but I don't have to download the file first and then open it in Foxit. Works until they find another way.
  6. Downgrade from v5.1.0.400

    What was the version you had before? And did you install 5.1.0.400 over it, into the same folder, or did you uninstall the previous version?
  7. MX5 PC Beta Release 5.1.2.100

    Team work
  8. MX5 PC Beta Release 5.1.2.100

    Hmmm. I downloaded it yesterday but had to copy the URL and paste it into the address bar as it wasn't a clickable link yesterday. Today it is a clickable link and you are right, it doesn't work. But highlighting it, copying it and pasting it into the address bar does work. It also installed in a second and also seems to open faster as well.
  9. Gmail doesnt load completely

    Why uninstall? Just install the newer version in a new folder; it is not necessary to install Maxthon 5 into a folder named MX5 or Maxthon5. During installation click "advanced" and change the folder name. I currently have several versions of MX5 installed in folders named MX5.1.1.x and MX 5.1.0.x and 5.0.x.x. And they all will work if opened, just that they can't be opened at the same time; close one and open another one. No need to ever uninstall, and I have found that installing over an existing installation may not always work well, especially if the version number changes from say 5.0.xx to 5.1.xx. Why do I have all of these installed you might ask: because I am a tester and see several betas that never are seen by the general public and I can only fairly test new releases if I install in a new folder.
  10. Invalid Certificate in Gmail?

    Well.today, Sunday, I also got the invalid certificate notice when opening Gmail. So, I guess there might be an issue. Let's see if others experience it as well.
  11. Invalid Certificate in Gmail?

    What makes you think it is a bug? Using the same version as you wrote that you are using, I don't have any issues with certificates on Gmail or any other site. Let's see if anyone else can duplicate what you experience.
  12. Passport not signing in

    Just fine here. I think that maybe they are having server issues both times; haven't seen any changes yet.
  13. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [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.
  14. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    I'm starting a new post so as not to be lost if I edit a previous post. Wilser, I have found that applying your "Alpha Tab Bar below The Bookmarks Bar" skin to Mx 5.1.0.1400 causes my Maxthon Multisearch to display improperly. It displays the proper results but it is only in the right hand side of the results window and can not be moved via the lower scroll bar or stretched by dragging. Using a single search such as Google or Bing results in a properly displayed search result, filling the whole window. Hope this screenshot helps explain the issue. Not sure why this happens only when I apply your skin. I discovered that the skin affects this because I was testing a newer 5.1 internal release and Multisearch worked fine right after installing. But after I decided it was okay to apply your skin, that's when I discovered this issue was still there. I can post some other screenshots if that helps with your being able to diagnose this issue. Thanks as always for your skin work.
  15. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    Thanks for the updates AND for the detailed answer to my query showing all of the file changes in the new versions files. Above and beyond.
