  1. I have good news. I had saved a few days before my latest crash a 58KB text file from the Last Session Manager. I had at that time opened it with File Viewer Lite. I was pretty disappointed because all I saw viewing it that way was a few URLs in text form, just a small fraction of the data that was on the mx://last-visit/ page. Anyway, a couple of days ago I was reminded of that text file and decided to follow your guidance here and see what would happen opening it from within Last Session Manager. I was pleasantly surprised to see all my mx://last-visit/ data from July 11 restored. I don't understand the discrepancy with what I saw in File Viewer Lite; it seems like abra cadabra. At any rate, I'm delighted. Thank you for your help on these matters. I still am desiring to send a bug report. My last Maxthon crash was exceptional. Afterwards I was unable to get Maxthon to load without crashing first, even after reinstalling and updating. I found the website's advice to rename the Application Data folder to Maxthon51, and that worked. The article (http://www.maxthon.com/mx5/help/question/hotIssues/crashAndSolution.php) told users who experienced that problem to upload their data with a bug report, so I'm wanting to do that.

  2. Thank you for your response. I'm trying to submit a bug report about my latest crash at http://www.maxthon.com/mx/bug/post/### I fill everything out, including properly entering the verification code. Then when I click on "Submit bug", a red line comes up under the text box saying " Please fill in your bug report (Less than 1000 words)" However, I have already indeed filled in my bug report. The page will not "Submit bug" for me. I have filled in email address, selected the correct make of Maxthon browser, filled in a bug report of under 500 words, included a screenshot, indicated the problem happens " Once in a while ", and entered the right verification code. This happens on both Maxthon and SeaMonkey browsers. Tried to put this in an edit, but it wouldn't let me. I also did fill in my exact Maxthon version and chose "User data lost" and "Other lost" in the tabs at the top of the text box.
  3. Thank you very much for the effort you put into compiling or obtaining this information. It is very good for the community to have this. I intend to print it out. There is a problem with the extension itself. On the mx://last-visit/ page we happily get links with good English language captions. Saving to a text file does not preserve the links. I did some asking around about this. See https://forums.majorgeeks.com/threads/way-to-convert-html-file-to-txt-file-and-keep-the-links.319000/#post-2017383 If you open Notepad you will find it's impossible to put a link in a .txt file. You can do it in .rtf, but not in .txt. This is something the extension developers need to address. You can't restore the mx://last-visit/ page from a text file. It would be good if it was allowing restoration from an .html file, but it apparently doesn't. That is good, but it's not the same as restoring the mx://last-visit/ page itself. For example, you can't type directly into Maxthon to remove pages you have dealt with to your satisfaction the way you can with the mx://last-visit/ page. Also, as I said, it would be good to have some control over the "Earlier Session" function.
  4. Is this thread showing in the forum or is it hidden? I have tried to find it starting from the forum page and been unable to do so. I have been doing this. The .html files that I get from this do not save to any folder associated with Maxthon. I thought there might be a folder that was for saving stuff from the Maxthon Last Session Manager extension. Furthermore, I am at a loss to know just what I can do in the way of restoring from the Last Session.html files saved in this fashion from the Maxthon Tools context menu. I have dragged and dropped and I have fiddled with the various tabs on the Last Session Manager extension trying to do this without success. When I click on that I don't get any of the sessions I've saved but rather what shows in the screenshot. Were you wanting me to do that? It does indeed need explanation, and perhaps overhaul. Except the one weird occasion where I think "Refresh Last Session" helped me, I have spent a lot of time working with this extension to no benefit. Another thing: "Earlier Session" on my mx://last-visit/ page continues showing a session from a while back. How do I get it to show something more recent? another reply.rtf
  5. The whole point is I can't copy the text into the browser or type into the browser because Maxthon provides me with boxes that cannot be typed into. They sometimes look good but as soon as I click on the box it almost always turns into something that can't be typed into. This happens on the browsers Maxthon, SeaMonkey, Firefox, and SlimJet, all the browsers I use. (I'm on Windows XP SP3, by the way.) Just now I caught a lucky break on SeaMonkey and found a usable text box here. In the first screenshot you can see what I typically encounter when trying to post on the Maxthon forum. In the second screenshot you see where I was hindered from posting on your profile. I request that you report this glitch to the IT people. Thank you. I have now bookmarked this page. I have been saving a copy of the lasttabsa.dat file in the %Application Data\Maxthon5\Users\[user email address]\History folder every time I shut down, just as I used to save lasttabs.dat on Maxthon 4. Sometimes when I have a crash and I put the previous lasttabsa.dat back in the folder, it will show me a blank page instead of bringing back the data that's surely in the lasttabsa.dat file as indicated by its size. I didn't have this problem when utilizing saved copies of lassttabs.dat. I wonder if you know anything to make this work. I believe this last time "Refresh Last Session" somehow bailed me out. It doesn't seem to me that "the Saved Session data for Last Session Manager" would necessarily be the same as this .dat data in the History folder since Last Session Manager is an optional extension. That's why I posted this question. Interestingly, I just now found a Last Session.html in my Downloads folder No this is in reference to Last Session Manager on mx://last-visit/, clicking the "Choose file" box under "Saved Session List". When I try choosing file, the name of the HTML file will show up between "Choose file" and "Import From File". But nothing happens when I click on "Import From File." That's a real problem. OK, now I have a screenshot showing what I'm talking about. Nothing happens when I click on "Import From File" to the right of "Last Session.html." I want to go on record that it would really be helpful for somebody to post a thorough tutorial on the use of this relatively new Last Session Manager, covering all 11 tabs and the 2 buttons. reply on Maxthon forum.rtf
  6. It ought to be easy to find and report this information.
  7. I had saved a number of sessions with Last Session Manager. Then I had a bad blue screen crash. According to what I see on mx://last-visit/ with Last Session Manager open, it seems as though the crash may have destroyed them all. If you know any way I can recover them, please tell me. I had also used "Save as" with mx://last-visit/, and I have a Last Session.html file saved. When I click on "Choose file" and retrieve this file and then click on "Import From File", nothing happens. Any way you can help me with this? Do you know why it would not work? If there is nothing I can do about the last crash, I want to know where the Saved Session data for Last Session Manager is kept so I can consider backing it up in some location that would not be affected by a future crash. _Document.rtf
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
