  1. 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.
  2. Updated User Agent

    I have tried this but it is not being saved. The UA reverts back to the default UA.
  3. Updated User Agent

    How do I save a user Agent?
  4. Facebook Issues

    That is what shows in Maxthon but the group is several years old and there are thousands of post in the group. maybe it is a Facebook issue but if I look at the group on my phone, everything is there.
  5. 1) Facebook Live Stream, chat section does not update properly when in a FB Live Stream. Specifically Joe Pags Live Stream at 6 PM Central Standard Time. All my Live Streams open in a new window when I watch this Stream. 2) Group Pages only displays the first few posts then the rest of the page is blank below the first few posts. https://www.facebook.com/groups/owatonnaoddjobs/ Running Win 10 and MX5 5.0.2.2000 I tried using the updates User Agent however no change I updated Flashplayer and no change.
  6. Ok, I have looked at all the tabs and settings in MX 4. I see no Reference to anything labeled "Quick Access" or "Favorites Manager". If I understand what is being said above, IF I use "Quick Access" of "Favorites Manager" All my links and passwords would be brought into MX5? One thing I don't understand is why if all that information is in "Magic Fill", that information cannot be used to populate MX5 and allow me to use i.maxthon.com as I currently use it. I am just trying to use my browser in a fashion that I like and want to continue to use. I am all for change and I understand change and like new toys and features. @Mo88 You are correct. I like all the news and weather on the same page as all my links with one click logins from that page. I also have Oper installed and I have a couple of links on "Quick Dial". I equate "Quick Dial" to"My Favorites" on i.maxthon.com. If I update Opera, I don't lose "Quick Dial" Links. They are all there just as i left them in the old version. Folders in my "Favorites" come in just fine but I use that feature for a totally different reason than "My Favorites" on i.maxthon.com. Maybe I am missing something but it sounds like due to a cookie format change, I am stuck with MX4 and switching between "Custom User Strings" for different websites or using MX5 and re-entering 40 plus links and passwords on i.maxthon.com. I should not have to do either of these. So, I have some suggestions: 1) find a way to bring in "My Favorites" or 2) Add a feature to use the "Magic Fill" data to populate "My Favorites" 3) Use a similar format as Opera "Quick Dial" (Maybe MX5 already has this but MX4 to MX5 does not) I have used Maxthon since 2007 ish, starting while I lived in China for 8 years. I don't want to appear angry or insulting and apologize if it comes across that way.
  7. Personally, I have a problem using Passport. I don't want my information stored on a 3rd party server.I have a passport account and my data is already there. With that being said, it sounds like I cannot get the i.maxthon.com that I have as my start up page on V 4.9 to migrate to MX5 without using passport which also doesn't bring the "cookie" in 4.9 into MX5 I installed MX5, still have V4.9.4.3000 installed and available. Since Maxthon doesn't give me a seamless way to use the 4.9 homepage at i.maxthon.com and syncing to MX5 doesn't bring that "cookie" in, I am thinking about going to another browser that doesn't have these issues. To get all of that back I would have to re-enter 40 plus websites on the MX5 startup page. This shouldn't happen because of an "upgrade". Maxthon really should give you the option of using their Passport Cloud or not. I don't like being forced to load my username and passwords on a cloud server in order to use data from an oolder version and they should bring in "Whatever" data that was used in the older version. I shouldn't have to use an account to use my browser. This is why I don't use Chrome. I like the Maxthon layout, BUT, 4.9.4.3000 really has a lot of issues when it comes to various websites and flashplayer. I am tired of having to switch Custom User Strings to access features of different websites.
  8. Ok, I installed MX5. Magic fill brought in all my "Your Favorites" passwords but did not populate my start page with all my links and descriptions. The only thing it brought in from V 4.9.4.3000 to my start page is "Favorites" tool bar and drop down menu. This is very frustrating when a browser doesn't just update your old info EXACTLY like the previous version you were using. V 4.9.4.3000 has issues with flashplayer and MX5 doesn't bring in V 4.9.4.3000 in exactly as the user would expect. I may switch to another browser unless someone can guide me through updating "Your Favorites" without having to manually entering them.
  9. Here is is what I want to bring in to MX5. This is not a "User" account. I just open Maxthon with no login and this is my home page. Also, if I have trouble, will 4.9.4.3000 still be untouched for use?
  10. I started my own thread on my issue but I have a similar question. I only use Guest "login" Maxthon Now is my start/ home page. In the centerof the page is the "Favorites" section which is different from the "Favorites Folder" found on the tool bar. My "Favorites" Section has 40 links with their associated passwords which are stored in Magic Fill. I want MX5 to bring all of that information in along with the "Favorites" on the tool bar from V 4.9.4.3000
  11. I want to upgrade to MX 5 but I want to migrate my "Guest User" home page with all my links and passwords and I don't want to use "Pass Keeper". Is this possible? I have 40 links on my "Maxthon Now Start Page Favorites Links". I am using V 4.9.4.3000

If that happens I just Google the video and watch it at another source if possible.
