  1. I agree to lose history is pretty frustrating, especially when we confidently expect it to be moved over when importing from MX4. I have managed to keep mine as I use portable versions and still have my MX4 and its history intact. Must do some backups now though just in case....... They seem to have messed up the usability of Favorites too as I can't find a Favorites manager or even a Search now. I might not have looked hard enough though. I am not sure what Notes Manager is and can't summon the enthusiasm to investigate it.
  2. That's it ! The Target to open MX5 was the path to the maxthon.exe with the offending url added on. When removed normal behaviour is resumed and browser opens as expected so thanks for the helpful diagnosis. I am not at all sure how it got there though. Actually that is a smart way of having a home page of choice as well as the Last Session list.
  3. Knowing the URL will not affect this problem as MX5 opens now with a home page of the desktop shortcut without my clicking on the shortcut. It also opens with the last session, two tabs in all at startup. All that is set in settings at startup is last session. The desktop url: seems stuck to continually open with the browser not the shortcut, although it will open as well when the shortcut is clicked. This behaviour is wrong, and I have reverted to an earlier version for the moment. This is one for the devs I think to fix. Unless someone knows which ini file is forcing this extra tab to open.
  4. Thanks for the update. I will look forward to the next release more than usual this time. Update : Looks like this is now fixed in v5.1.3.200. 2nd update 19/10/17 : Yes the above issue is fixed but now, using , each time I open MX5 the url for my desktop internet shortcut opens as if it was a home page. I have chosen in Settings to open at last session and this does open as well but the first tab to open is the desktop shortcut. I had a look round and discovered in config.ini under LastTabs the offending url. Deleting this did not prevent it being opened again at the next browser startup. Now, I have two internet shortcuts on the desktop and opening the other one does not make it act like a home page as well. So it looks like MX5 has decided to select the first one I opened and make this a permanent additional homepage.

  6. Precisely. Yes that is another way of describing it.
  7. I have several desktop internet shortcuts which have the correct URL entered. Using MX4 as default browser these work by opening the browser or opening a new tab and then connecting to the URL address. However, on exactly the same machine, if I change default browsers to MX5 these same shortcuts do not work in M5.1.2.1000. The browser will open but a tab is not then created to go to the URL. If I right click the shortcut there is an option to use MX5 or Maxthon Cloud Browser and these will indeed open and go to the URL. This happens when using XP and both browsers are portable only. Ideas or workarounds anyone or is this a sign of vanishing XP support.
  8. Display of router start page

    A further discovery is that build 1800 is the last version where url alias use and webpage preload of search while typing still works together. Later versions require one or the other feature to be used only. DEVS there are now two retrograde bugs introduced here. Will these be added to the confirmed bugs page ever ? Or even better a fix for them as they both used to work before the more current builds of MCB.
  9. Display of router start page

    Yes Oliver your theory is good. I have now tried v1800 and this is a 'fixed' version too. I did not say that I had tried all builds since 1200 just that the later ones that I had tried were buggy again. So can we have a fix please ???
  10. Display of router start page

    This problem was certainly fixed. So thanks for that . But it has now reappeared. All the versions I have tried after v4.4.5.1200 no longer suppress this annoying router login request continually. So I am stuck with using v4.4.5.1200. A lasting fix would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  11. Display of router start page

    I have two routers, both Netgear, that misbehave in the way described with continual login popups : DG834GT DGND3700 Hope you are getting near a fix.

    BugSir007 replied at 2014-12-29 23:02 Hello, Sorry for the inconvenience. I have talked to our development team about this issue and it ha ... Thanks for the update. I will try and be patient. I realized that it was a bug some time ago as other browsers I use just behave normally.
  13. Display of router start page

    magg replied at 2014-12-27 06:40 Hi there. Try to disable Adhunter. I know this issue from my own experience-I also have Netgear rout ... Thanks for that. It now works normally with adhunter off. The next annoying thing with displaying this router and also my Netgear DG834G is that every time I change a page in the router to look at something else another login and authentication window pops up. I do not need to sign in again as I have already done that so I use the escape key to clear it. Fiddling with other adhunter settings does not prevent this happening. Any one else ???
  14. I find that when using MCB I am unable to log into my router using Ultra mode. I enter and then get a sign in window but after entering the correct data and clicking login nothing ever happens. I have a quick access button too and this is continually searching. If I switch to IE mode then login happens normally. When I use MCB I am able to login normally in Ultra mode. I use portable versions only and the router is a Netgear DGND 3700.
  15. Online History has been downgraded. It only keeps the last 5 days now. It used to keep all the past history in the Maxthon 3 days.
