  1. Works fine for me in both 5.2.7.1000 and 5.2.7.1100; haven't tried 5.2.7.2000 yet. I'm guessing that these are the versions you are referring to as there isn't any 5.7.2.x versions yet. The new core versions are 5.3.8.x. 

    Edit: Just extracted 5.2.7.2000 portable and 'drag and drop' works as usual for me; used it to get to this thread. Can't speak for the install version; I don't use it anymore.

    Can me someone expleain this updates ??? Why 5.3.8.300 downgrading on 5.2.7.1000 ?? Why should i download it ??

    5.3.8.300 is a beta version which contains a new upgraded core and is not for regular users daily use as their default browser. 5.2.7.1000 is the current final release with 5.2.7.1100 released recently is a beta upgrade of that series.

    I have to wonder why it was not 5.3.1.300?  The new core justifies the 5.3, but NOTHING justifies 8; the build doesn't bother me.

    I brought all of this up when it was first posted but Tony told me it was "not a big deal". So, I just waited to see who else might find it interesting. All I ever wanted was an explanation from someone other than us users.

    I only brought it up here because since it was originally posted in a thread titled 5.2.8.300 it might be why Kilmitar couldn't find it; that thread it appears has now been edited to be titled 5.3.8.300 and everyone can find it now.

    when you open new tab and start writing right away address or anything first letters got deleted if you do it to early.

    I have noticed this as well but didn't relate it to the new beta at first, just thought it was me. Thanks for posting this.

    Found problem with youtube. When trying open new video it sometimes open as paused, but when you click on "Play" it doest work until yourefresh page.

    Just what version are you talking about? There is no version 5.2.3.800, unless you have a very old version; we've been on 5.2.7 for a while now. The latest beta release was advertised as 5.2.8.300 but in actuality the download file is 5.3.8.300 and it shows up in Help> About as 5.3.8.300 (also that is the version number for the maxthon.exe file)

    It's tied to my phone number and when I enter my Maxthon Password, they send me a code that I have to enter and that is where the problem starts because I get the same error code that IceHouse got in his original post.  This has been happening for a very long time.

    Well, that makes more sense; I don't have it tied to my phone so just my password is all that is required and that is why I have never experienced this problem. Thanks for the response.

  7. Maybe I'm not doing what you are or understanding what you are talking about, but I just accessed Passkeeper from the menu and from the QA page link and was able to login using my longtime password with no problem and have never had any issue with that. ( Not sure what you, No.1, are referring to with regards to "the same code I was sent")

    with respect Rick - whats in a number - if that was all we had to complain about it would be relevant but there are more important things not working that need fixing

    it just seems bugsir had a finger problem when posting the thread - no big deal 

    Is it not a big deal because you didn't discover it? I don't think most of what you complain about are big deals either as I don't experience any of them, such as your complaint that the download file is corrupt, which I have never experienced, but I don't tell you that your concern is "no big deal" It's not that bugsir had a finger problem, it's that the version is miss numbered. Bugsir had it right in that the version should be numbered 5.2.8.300 as that is in line with all of the numbering over the last 15 years. If in fact it is going to a new series of 5.3 versions, then it should be 5.3.1 as this would be the first one in a new series.

    Thank you all for the feedback. It has been fixed now. :wink:

    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.


  10. 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.

     


  11. 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.

     


  12. 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.Maxthon Desktop with Multisearch.jpg

    I have tried. in 4.9 it always saved but for some reason MX5 isn't saving it. Maybe Maxthon needs to add a save button for saving changed setting. I notice when I make changes in 4.9 a message is dislpayed that changes were saved. I don't see that message in MX5 which leaves me wondering if they are being saved, so I exit out of settings and come back in to make sure anything I changed is actually saved. Thanks for the reply.

    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

    I'll work on it after the maxthon team updates the core of mx5

    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.


  15. 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.

     


  16. 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.

    Thank you all again for the welcome. :) 

    @rick.lane @SnowLeopard Thanks for commenting and letting me know your wishes, but to make them come true, I would like to know the number of the skin they want with the eyelash bar at the bottom.

    @Magdalene Will be back, please be patient :wink:

    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.


  18. 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.

  19. still does not work in french language : it still deletes all content (latest maxthon version 4.4.8.1000)

    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.
