  1. MX UI issues... let's make a list!

    I'm on 5.2.1. I will update soon. The golden bee is absolutely the same color on every site for me, no help I also have a lot of of problems with the tabs. Often when I go to a tab, especially mx://last-visit/, it flashes the content at me and then goes white. I frequently have to reload the tab. I wasn't enduring much of that on Maxthon 4. By the way, MX5 is the same thing as Maxthon Cloud Browser, isn't it?
  2. I used to have Download Accelerator Plus (DAP) as my default downloader in Maxthon. I have become disenchanted with it and uninstalled it. I got rid of it in Maxthon Settings. Nonetheless I continue to battle the ghost of DAP when I try to download in Maxthon, as you can see in the screenshots. I have done registry scans with multiple scanners to try to root out DAP: I found no entries mentioning both DAP and Maxthon. Upgrading to the latest stable version of Maxthon did not rid me of the ghost of DAP. What do I do?
  3. MX UI issues... let's make a list!

    It used to be in Maxthon 4 that when one was on a favorited webpage, a gold star would show on the main toolbar. It was very helpful to me, because I have over 3,000 Maxthon bookmarks. The gold star helped remind me that a page need not be bookmarked because it was bookmarked already, a reminder useful since I can't remember perfectly which pages I have and have not already bookmarked. Please bring the gold star back in Maxthon 5.
  4. Want to return favorites bar to my chosen configuration

    Thank you very much, 7twenty. Why is the Maxthon forum website so difficult? Aside from actually dead websites, I have far more trouble getting the Maxthon to load and be formatted for me than any other website. I have to go to SeaMonkey rather than Maxthon or Firefox to make a thread on the Maxthon forum. When I want to make a post on a thread, I usually don't get a normal text box and have to upload a text file. This time was the rare exception.
  5. Want to return favorites bar to my chosen configuration

    I only have one account, and I don't know anything about guest mode. Could I ask you to explain another item in the favorites bar context menu--"Update favicons"? Is "Import user data" for importing bookmarks from other browsers? Reply.txt
  6. I've been updated to Maxthon 5. Mostly it has been good for me, but here is a problem I am having. Often my favorites bar will, as shown in the screenshot, display three folders ("Default folder", "Bookmarks", and "Favorites--2018-03-10...") instead of showing the bookmarks and bookmarklets I have chosen to put on my favorites bar. Sometimes for reasons unknown to me it will switch back to the display I configured for the favorites bar, but later it will switch back again. Can you tell me how I can switch away from the unwanted three folder-display to my chosen configuration for the favorites bar?

  7. I am frequently losing Maxthon History when there is a blue screen or a freeze that necessitates a power button shutdown. I get a message next session that says "History database is destroyed. Do you wish to rebuild it?" I click Yes, but I never see any evidence the rebuilding took place. This last time, I had both Maxthon and Firefox open when a blue screen hit. I lost my Maxthon History since April 19, but I lost no Firefox History. I once lost after a crash the icons on my about:last entries and my bookmarks. Is there anything I can do to get my History back? The Online History is there going back to September 20, but it will go away before long. Is there anything I can do to transfer that to about:history? There is something wrong with Maxthon that it is so susceptible to loss of data and that rebuilding is not taking place. It's getting worse, too. This used to not happen to me when I had crashes. Please fix it.

  10. I want to retrieve hidden Maxthon history

    In C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\MaxthonCrashData I actually have 3.83 MB worth of data. I imagine I'll need multiple zips. So where do you want me to send it and how?
  11. I want to retrieve hidden Maxthon history

    Do you want me to send my crash data? If so, please tell me precisely what to do.
  12. I want to retrieve hidden Maxthon history

    Thank you for your response. I've had this problem with several freezes leading to power button shutdowns lately. Usually I would have also have Firefox open. I get messages about destruction of data from Maxthon, but I'm not aware the power button shutdowns have done any harm to my Firefox data. To me it suggests a vulnerability in Maxthon that needs attention.

    Thank you for your responses, BugMiss006 and 7twenty. Which files do you refer to here? What do you mean by MX accessing it?
  14. My Maxthon is no longer collecting website icons

    Thank you very much. It did restore my bookmark icons and a smattering of the about:last icons. That will be a help to me.
  15. My Maxthon is no longer collecting website icons

    I reinstalled Maxthon and now it is once again gathering new icons. I'd still like to get back the icons for my bookmarks, history and about:last, however.
