  1. 5.2.8.300

    How about the version number discrepancy? Am I the only one that noticed it? Did no one read my post above? All the talk here is about a 5.2.8.300 version (that doesn't exist) when the actual version download file and the resulting Maxthon version is 5.3.8.300. What's up with that? Please acknowledge BugSir006.
  2. 5.2.8.300

    First download of portable worked fine for me, but I find that the actual version number is 5.3.8.300, not 5.2.8.300, both in Help>About and hovering over the maxthon.exe in File Explorer, which made me wonder why a jump from 5.2 to 5.3 as well as jump from .7 to .8. Now it looks like it might be that a mistake was made rather than an intentional version number update from .2 to .3 with the update to .8 being because of the core change. The download files, both install and portable, also indicate 5.3.8.300 though title of the page is 5.2.8.300. I also notice that the default user agent (using What's my user agent at https://www.whatsmyua.info/) has Maxthon as 5.3.8.300. "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/69.0.3497.81 Safari/537.36 Maxthon/5.3.8.300". Note also that the Chrome version is not up to date (72.0.3626.109 is the latest Chrome on my installation). However I am using the default Maxthon User Agent because I had problems with some sites when I used a custom User Agent with Chrome set to 71.0.3578.98 a few weeks ago.
  3. You don't need to uninstall Maxthon via the Windows app list. If you installed the install version, simply delete the folder you installed it into. And if it was a clean install, which it sounds like it was, also find the data folder in AppData>Roaming>Maxthon5 and delete that as well and just start over. If you are using the portable version, it is even easier; just delete it all and start again. In either case, maybe even download the version again just to make sure.
  4. When all else fails, it is usually the best to reinstall Maxthon. Are you using the install version or the portable version? Do you have a passport account and thus have all of your settings saved on the passport server? Did you install this current version over a previous version or did you install it into a new folder? I'm surprised that no one has asked these basic questions yet. These are basic things to look into first.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Updated User Agent

    After pasting in the new updated UA, uncheck the box to Use Customized User Agent and then check it again; the settings are saved message will appear at the top of the page
  9. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    Chiming in with something that occurred to me and I see that there has been some recent activity on this thread. I was curious if you, Wilser, or anybody else knows if the folder and files used in these skins (start;UIHuge.dat;UIMain.dat) have significantly changed in their original form in these 5.1 versions such that using one of your skins (I like to use the Alpha-Tab Bar below the Bookmarks Bar one) by replacing these files with your modified files and folder might remove a new feature or something that I won't see if I use your skins? I haven't dug into these files and folder to know just what they do control so I'm just curious if these files and folder are updated in these new core versions, 5.1.0.x, which I have been testing for a few weeks now and that have now been released in beta to the forum, and subsequently will need to be updated for your skins. The skin I like to use appears to work fine for me in this latest beta, 5.1.0.1400, but I don't know if something new is being left out by using the old modified files and folder. As always, your skin work goes above and beyond and are greatly appreciated. Hopefully you are able to shed some light on this issue.
  10. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    Just updated to skin version 1.0.1 with tabs below address bar. Works fine with new beta 1400. Though I have to admit, I haven't yet seen what you may have updated from 1.0.0 and 1.0.1. I did notice something I had not noticed before and that was that the External Tools icon is not appearing in the toolbar even though I have it checked and links added to it. So, I went back to the original UI.dat etc and checked to make sure that it wasn't your skin that caused that and it is missing even in the original, so I guess I should post that somewhere where it will be noticed. Your skin is not the culprit and I haven't found anything that it doesn't render correctly, so again, good job and Thanks.
  11. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    Thank you so much Wilser for also making a version with the tab bar below the Favorites and Address bar that I and Snow Leopard had requested. Works just fine with the new 1400 beta. Just to be clear and certain, these new skins are just cosmetic skins and I'm not missing some other changes to the menu or other modifications elsewhere that some earlier version skins that some others, maybe even you, had made earlier. I am not in need of any other changes/modifications but was just wondering as I do remember some other skins in earlier versions did modify other settings and menus. Good work and thanks again for addressing users requests.
  12. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    Wilser, thanks for replying. Right now, I am using a modified UIMain.dat that Tony, our other skins guy, made and posted to achieve the tab bar being below the address bar. I found that with this file mod, if I do turn on the Favorites bar, the tab bar appears between the Favorites bar and the address bar. It seems to work just fine for me right now. However, that is all it accomplishes (as that is all it was intended to accomplish) and it would be nice to be able to add it as an option (this mod is just for this with no option to turn it on or off as Tony intended) to any or all of your skins, especially if you include some other modifications in your skins. Your choice and option to do with your skins as you desire; just putting my 2 cents into the discussion and I am sure that I will more than appreciate whatever you come up with as this is not my strong point. Thanks again.
  13. Skins for MX 5.1.2.3000 [Customizables]

    Welcome back. I "Liked" them so that the count will go up, but I won't be using any of them as the only skin change I would like is the tab bar able to be the bottom bar in the top group, below the address bar and the favorites bar (which I don't use anyway) and the last tool bar above the content window. I'm sure that when you get enough "likes" and go ahead with this project, that you will be able to incorporate something along those lines down the road. Good work nonetheless. Thanks.
  14. Updated User Agent

    Thank you.
  15. Thank you so much for this auto updater. HBO Go now works in ultra mode. I had been trying to update or enable or whatever the flash in MX5 for a while with no success. I had to watch HBO Go in Retro mode until today! Ran the MX Flash Updater 0.65b and it solved that problem right away. Thanks again. ( Just for info, I had to download the file, close MX5 and run the file as admin to get it to work, but it tells you that as you go and then it worked as designed). Now, should this updater file be saved and used with each new update or will it only work for current version? It looks like it should work for any version.
  16. I don't think BugMissoo6 understood your question. Multiple instances of Maxthon in task manager is perfectly normal as it is designed to keep the whole browser from crashing when just one item or page crashes. Version number doesn't matter as this has been this way since MX3, I believe. This is not a problem at all.
  17. Updated User Agent

    Chrome just updated itself on my machine to 50.0.2661.75 m if that will make a difference in one's UA.
  18. Spellchecker in Facebook comments

    English language here, same maxthon version. Same problem and it's been around for some time now. I use the spell check to see what to change then change it manually as I lose everything if I click to change. This is getting to be a drag because I am such a sloppy typer and have to make corrections all of the time.
  19. I have IE11 installed on my computer. However, many sites I have tried retro mode with display a message that says I am using an older version of IE no longer supported by that site and that I should update to a newer version of IE, and suggest IE9 or newer. One even thought I was using IE6. But as I said, I have IE11 installed and no trace of any older IE versions. Could this be a user agent issue? I have what I believe is the latest UA copied from this forum and I don't see any reference to IE in that UA string. Any advice as to how to get Maxthon to use IE11 and to show sites that I am using IE11 when I go into retro mode? Thanks. Oh, and it is 5:54 P.M. where I am posting this, and Maxthon is still telling me it is 12:54A.M. Would really like to get this time zone problem solved soon.
  20. Problem with IE in Retro Mode

    Thanks, 7Twenty, that box was not checked though I thought it was, so thanks for reminding me to check it. And BugMiss006, I have modified my UA, so thanks to you as well. Now I'll have to see how it all works.
  21. Print to PDF

    I just printed this page to PDF using the Foxit Reader PDF printer as my printer option. Worked just fine and from Webkit mode.
  22. I don't think that's what he is referring to as he said "Pop Up Notifications that appear in the lower right", not on the status bar, which are on the left. I don't see any popups in that location on the lower right, so I don't know what he is dealing with as he wasn't specific as to what the popups are about.
