  1. Which version of Maxthon 5 (Menu>Help>About)?
  2. Apparently 5.2.2.1000 still freezes

    The only third party extension I have installed if F.B.Purity and it's enabled.
  3. Why this link shows blank?

    Windows 10 with latest update, Maxthon 5.2.2.1000 installed version and though I can't read the text, it surely isn't a blank page. 7twenty has the most reasonable suggestion to get started.
  4. Apparently 5.2.2.1000 still freezes

    How did you update to Maxthon 5? What did you update from and where did you install it? I am not a computer geek and do not have a high tech machine, but I have never experienced any freezing or slowness in any Maxthon version since 2004, and especially not with any of the Maxthon 5 versions, so I am at a loss as to why you folks are having these troubles since we are installing the same software into a Windows computer.
  5. duplicates current page

    To the best of my knowledge, there is no version ever named "5.1.6000". The current version is 5.2.1.6000. Check to make sure which one you are using and asking about as it does make a difference for those that will be trying to help you. As concerns your problem, I have nothing to help you with at this time as I have never encountered what you are describing. Make sure that all of your settings concerning tabs are what you want them to be if you haven't already: Menu> Settings> General.
  6. Permission to use Browser???????

    sorry, but this doesn't happen to me at all, except when i first install a new version, so I have to think it isn't Maxthon per se so in my mi nd there is nothing that needs to be corrected in Maxthon. That said, how did you install the MX5 version 5.2.1.6000? From your original post, it sounds as though you are just now upgrading to MX5 from MX4. Did you install it into a new folder or over your installation of MX4? Ideally, each new version should be installed into it's own new folder and not over an older version so it should not be installed into the same folder that a previous MX4 version was installed into. But it also applies to versions of MX5, as the Mx5.1.x versions have a different core than the MX5.2.x versions. I don't know how you have installed the various versions or how m any you have tried, but in an effort to try and solve your problem, can you install the 5.2.1.6000 version into a totally new folder and then sync it with your passport data? (When you install a new version, in the dialog box, select Advanced and then modify the path that it is to be installed into so that it is a brand new folder and not what it is suggesting, which is usually the last folder you installed into. For instance, name the new folder MX5.2.x.x) Since I don't have the problem of being asked every time I open Maxthon if it is Okay, you either don't have it set as the default browser or your installation isn't working. Hope this helps but I don't guarantee it will solve your problem. Maxthon must be the default browser for that dialog box to stop appearing ( I get asked that every time I open an older version which is not my default browser anymore; and as a tester I have several versions installed simultaneously but only one is set as the default browser)
  7. Permission to use Browser???????

    Windows 10 has "tampered with the default settings". Go to Windows Settings>Apps>Default apps and scroll down until you see "Web Browser". If it isn't MX5, click on it and change it. Windows sets the default browser to Edge when changes are made and I have found that simply setting it in Maxthon doesn't always make Windows 10 accept that. If you indeed have MX5 set as your default browser you shouldn't see the "permission" dialog box when you attempt to open Maxthon. BTW, that dialog shows up most times that you install new software asking if it's okay to go ahead with the setup file; it's not anything to worry about, just click yes or OK.
  8. HDCP issue with MX5.2.1.x versions

    Provide a video of what? You are seeing what I see, the error message. I wouldn't know where to begin to get a video of whatever it is that you think you need
  9. Is it always there on the taskbar, even when Maxthon is not open? There will always be an icon on the taskbar when Maxthon is open. If it is still there when Maxthon is closed, right click on the icon and choose "unpin from taskbar" if you don't want it there. Maxthon the program does not place it's icon on the taskbar except when it is running, as every program does.
  10. He said "the icon was install on toolbar again". From his screen shot, it looks like a wide toolbar that I am unfamiliar with so it was just a possible suggestion as to why he has a Maxthon icon on any toolbar. Just what "toolbar" is he talking about? I thought maybe he meant "taskbar", so I tried.
  11. Your reply didn't address the question I asked you: During installation, do you go to the advanced section and tell it not to put an icon on your desktop? Also go to Menu> Settings>General>System Tray Icon and check or uncheck the option you want.
  12. As a subscriber to HBO, I have the use of an online service called HBO-GO whereby I have the ability to watch most of HBO's catalog on my computer through my browser. After logging in, I have access to HBO programming of my choice. However, with the latest versions of MX 5, the releases numbered 5.2.1.x, I am unable to view anything because of an HDCP issue and this error message appears instead of playing the video. If I use MX 5.1.6.3000, everything works as it is supposed to work: I log-in, choose my video to watch, and click on the start arrow to begin playing the video, and it plays with no problems. This indicates to me that the MX 5.2 versions have something that causes this issue since it apparently is not actually a device setup problem if it works with no different setup of my devices except for the version of my browser. I recall reporting this same issue a few years back with an earlier version of Maxthon (sorry I don't have that good enough memory anymore to be more detailed and accurate) and it was either fixed or magic occurred as the issue has been gone until the new 5.2.1 versions came along. Hope that this can be resolved again.
  13. I realize that English is not your first language, but I am not sure just what you are asking about. When you install a new version of Maxthon, do you click on Advanced in the install dialog window (lower right corner) and unclick the selection for a desktop icon?
  14. I read the whole thread for days. I am replying to DaveMax, who said "So long" because of this simple pop-up. And the rest of the thread is similar whining in my opinion.
  15. Jeez guys, all this pop-up is about is informing you that Maxthon is not the default browser and if you want it to be, then please set it as such. If not, click the X and it goes away. DaveMax, maybe Vivaldi doesn't check to see if it is the default browser and therefore doesn't notify you when it is not. If you are all on Windows10, it likes to hijack the default browser setting and sets it as Edge Browser. I have seen that Maxthon's menu option to set default browser now takes me to Windows default program app where you can change it from Edge to MX5. I have had to do it quite often lately as there have been several new releases in the past few weeks and simply checking "set as default" during installation doesn't always convince Windows to do that. I personally appreciate Maxthon informing me that Maxthon is not currently my default browser so that I can fix it right away. Certainly this isn't close to being a deal breaker in my mind nor is a response from the Maxthon team all that necessary as it isn't really that big of a deal.
