  1. Invalid SSL for mail.google.com

    Thanks for the response. I downloaded the new "version" of 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.
  2. Invalid SSL for mail.google.com

    This is also still happening for me with the latest internal test version ( 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Downgrade from v5.1.0.400

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

    Team work
  7. MX5 PC Beta Release

    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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Passport not signing in

    Just fine here. I think that maybe they are having server issues both times; haven't seen any changes yet.
  12. Skins for MX [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.
  13. Skins for MX [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 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.
  14. Skins for MX [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.
  15. 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
  16. Skins for MX [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,, 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.
  17. Skins for MX [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.
  18. Skins for MX [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.
  19. Skins for MX [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.
  20. Skins for MX [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.
  21. Updated User Agent

    Thank you.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
