  1. After updating to the start page does not load location and weather. any ideas why?
  2. Maxthon Startpage

    Where are you pulling the version numbers from for the strings when you update the string? From the websites for the browsers? I am also having a glitch on Facebook where I have to scroll up and down the page to get posts to display. I scroll to the bottom of the page and get a blank page until I scroll up and down until the posts load.
  3. Maxthon Startpage

    Ok,, it must have been a failed install. I went back a couple versions, copied in the local storage files and all was good there. Updated and the install brought in the links. Now, Newsmax feeds buffer very often but not using Edge or Opera. Facebook live streams, chat comments do not update. I can enter a post in a live stream chat but other comments do not update. Is there a user string that might correct this? I have tried Explorer 11, Maxthon, Chrome, Firefox and Opera user strings. Same results on all of them.
  4. Maxthon Startpage

    So, what do you mean "works as expected". I lost all links on the imaxthon startpage after the update. If I remove/delete/rename the pc-newtab files and replace them with imaxthon , the startpage comes back with the links. When I shut down the browser and reopen it, the default links come back. I went through and re-created all my links manually in "Your Favorites" section of the startup page. I restarted MX5 and the links are all gone and back to the default "Your Favorites" Links Section.
  5. So, here we go again. Although I use Quick Access, I also use the maxthon startpage as a "quick access" with links to all my favorite websites. After upgrading to, I have lost all the links again. I kept a backup of the Local storage files imaxthon http_i.maxthon.com_0.localstorage and http_i.maxthon.com_0.localstorage-journal just in case of any issues. Now has changed them to http_pc-newtab.maxthon.com_0.localstorage and http_pc-newtab.maxthon.com_0.localstorage-journal. I sure would like to recover my imaxthon page links without rebuilding the entire page. Any ideas? Also, with the last two updates, gmail will not load in standard view. I am forced to html view or to go to Microsoft Edge to view Gmail in standard view. As I have mentioned many times before, I have used Maxthon since the mid 2000's and updates always were great updates. However since the late 4 versions, these updates have presented one problem after another. No browser should have these many issues and files that get disassociated in order to update the browser I want to keep the pages as I want them whether it be a guest account or a personal account and whether I use Maxthon as a startup page or if I use Quick Access, it should be a seamless update with options to leave everything just as it was on the last version instead of losing everything. It's a good thing I have a little PC knowledge otherwise, I would have quit using Maxthon a long time ago. The average pc user would never be able to manipulate files just to get something to work.
  6. I uninstalled Flash Player, Windows updated the Security Update for Flash Player and MX 5, Edge and Opera run smoothly now. I will try the MX updater and see what happens. If the issue comes back. I am just going to run without it.
  7. Version 5.1.04000, I have plash Player 26 installed however when I run a check for Flash Player several sites show Flash Player V 24. I have copied the win system 32 Macromed flashplayer dll into Maxthon 5 after renaming the old dll but flash player checks always say it is 24. Microsoft released a Security Update for Flash Player earlier this month. This update brings all my browsers to a slow crawl. Uninstall the update and all runs smooth again. I have seen this happen on multiple machines. So 1) why do the Flash Player checks always indicate 24 in MX 5 when v24 it isn't even installed" 2) is Flash Player really necessary? I am reading many articles saying Flash Player is slowly but surely going away and some browsers allow you to disable Flash Player
  8. Updated User Agent

    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.

  14. Updated User Agent

    Thanks, Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Windows NT 10.0; U; WOW64; IA64; en) AppleWebKit/599.0+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Maxthon/ Chrome/53.0.2785.89 Safari/537.36 OPR/39.0.2256.48 QupZilla/2.0.1 Seems to be working, I do encounter a video once in awhile that gives me the "this browser does not support video playback" message. If that happens I just Google the video and watch it at another source if possible.
  15. Updated User Agent

    I am using in Windows 10 In order for me to type in this forum, I have to use the Chrome Agent, when I go back to Facebook, I have to switch to IE 11 Agent to play videos in Facebook. In Youtube I have to switch to Chrome Agent to view comments. So basically, I have to switch gents to get certain website functions to work. Some Agents just don't work at all for example, Opera, there is no difference than IE 11 Agent. Is there an Agent that can address these issue so I don't have to keep switching Agents? Thanks, Bob
