  1. V 5.2.4.800-beta, bad loading

    I tried downloading the installer within a minute of it being posted yesterday and found it corrupted. Still the same now.
  2. Maxthon crashes after idling

    Not sure - likely over a previous version, but at least one of them may well have been clean. I will install today's clean in a moment. The only consistent website would be Google Inbox - oh, and mx://last-visit/. Installed extensions: Ad Block (bundled version) Last Session Manager
  3. I should have really mentioned this when it first started happening, but for all releases over the past couple of months I've found Maxthon slow to a near-freeze whenever I've left my computer idle for more than about 10 minutes. Has anyone else experienced anything alike? I'm updated to 5.2.4.600 at the moment and it's already happened to me twice today. The number of tabs open appears to have no effect on whether it happens or not, nor is there any other identifiable reason to be found. No consistency in what pages or websites I may have open, nor any with a heavy load that I could imagine either Maxthon or my computer struggling with. Nor do I have any other processes running that would be hogging either processor or memory. Typical scenario: I'm working away for hours perfectly happily, opening and closing tabs, browsing, working. I leave my desk for lunch: it doesn't lock, it doesn't sleep or anything else; it doesn't even necessarily time out to turning off my monitors. When I return, Maxthon - and only Maxthon - is suddenly sluggish, and does that window-render-crash thing, where the height of the (maximised) browser window stretches down to cover up the taskbar, blurring the active tab's contents in the process, if I attempt to do anything, whether that be in the active tab or switching tab. It isn't a complete crash but very, very slow. Whilst the speed does appear to improve a little (over a matter of minutes) if left to its own devices, invariably the only actual solution is to quit Maxthon (sometimes forcefully) and start it up afresh. I'm running Windows 10 Pro x64 with 32 GB RAM on i7-5820K @ 3.30 GHz. As I type this, the utilisation is 3% CPU and 27% RAM - very typical.
  4. I think you've probably diagnosed that correctly, 7twenty. There's a very subtle difference in the fonts used in each browser that I've only just noticed; and Jeff's Chrome screenshot appears to use the same font as my MX one. (Note the dot above the i, which appears to be a single pixel in my Chrome screenshot but 2 pixels vertically in Jeff's Chrome and my MX.) I can't see a way to change my MX font, or to set Chrome to YaHei in order to test that specifically, however.
  5. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/3a8383be-70eb-11e8-bea3-bf1a5a054f3a <title>Brexiteers handed NHS ‘victory’ with strings attached | News | The Times</title> See screenshots for the same page in Maxthon and Chrome. MX renders with the erroneous spaces, Chrome does not.
  6. Do you mean that Chrome and Firefox also display the big space, and thus it must be a website issue? I've found the same behaviour on multiple websites and on inspecting the code, none of the <title> tags have any big odd gaps in - so it must be a wider WebKit bug.
  7. When a page has an apostrophe in the <title>, it becomes corrupted with a wide extra space in the tab name. I've observed this on multiple sites over the last few Windows releases, both beta and final.
  8. Finally fixed in 5.2.1.3000. Thank you!
  9. HTTP AUTH is still dead in new release 5.2.1.2000. :-(
  10. Not that there seems to be any doubt, but just for the record HTTP AUTH is also dead (401) for me in 5.2.1.1000 on Win 10 x64.
  11. Maxthon on SSD?

    Thanks for your thoughts, Oliver One. Much appreciated. I have indeed now installed on the SSD - fingers crossed!
  12. Hello! I have just built myself a new computer, complete with SSD boot drive. My question is, just how regularly does Maxthon 4 (and Nitro, for that matter) write data to the disk? I seem to recall it wrote really quite regularly in M2 and M3; is that still the case? In short: would the Maxthon developers advise on installing Maxthon on a traditional HDD, or will an SSD be fine? Thanks!
  13. Magic Fill not saving

    Thanks 7twenty. I do indeed use Passport, and removing the files worked perfectly.
  14. Hello, I've had a problem for a couple of months now (with all beta/preview M4 versions), where my user data is not saving in Magic Fill, and previously saved data has disappeared. I suspect that whatever file Maxthon stores this data in has become corrupted, but I'm not entirely sure which file it would be, and whether deleting it would allow Maxthon to create a fresh one in its place? Any assistance greatly appreciated.
