  1. Maxthon Fonts

    Could mean that it's a font that was added by another program, or from the site itself, but for some reason is being blocked. The fact that Maxthon does show it correctly on another system means you can discount it being a browser issue.
  2. If you need to post a link that is not family friendly, please PM a mod/bugsir/miss. Do not link in the thread. You've been asked 2 times to provide a link with the issue. If it's that much of a problem, it can't be that hard to provide a (forum appropriate) link. Given you are the one with the problem, it's better that it's a link provided by you, so we know it's a known "bad" link. There's no point in anyone else checking something that may not have the issue on their end. Also the it's not evident from the main page linked where to find any URLs.
  3. I might have a look at adding that as an option.

    Yeah, more than likely. Does the text on the Win10 laptop look like the text with the square or like the one with the correct character? If it looks like the correct one, then it should just be a matter of finding out which font it is and adding it to the Win8.1 system.
  5. You can try this extension: http://extension.maxthon.com/detail/index.php?view_id=3072&category_id= Not sure if that's what you want though.

  7. Tabs do not fit the screen boundary

    Will have to remember that. Really nice as it doesn't switch tabs on the first click. But it still doesn't fix the issue for switching tabs.

    Where did you copy/paste the ''Ɲ¤S'' above from? Or did you type that in? The fact that it's showing correctly on the forum seems to indicate that it's not that Maxthon can't display it, but more than likely it's using a font that doesn't have that character. EDIT: having another look at the images, they are using different fonts. So what i described above is more than likely the problem. The question now is why it isn't using the same font as what Chrome does?
  9. Ummm, no it's not? Most developers run a main and beta branch (at least) and update both depending on a number of factors. For example, Microsoft constantly updates Windows 10 mainstream releases for up to 18 months. During this time there will be 3 major versions released. At the same time there is constant development up to 3 versions ahead (insider ring) while they're still updating the oldest one. Not everyone wants to be on the cutting edge, so fixes & updates to the latest "official" versions ensure those users still get any fixes that require attention. Not a new issue, been going on since forever. And apparently it's by design that they don't release all new versions via the auto-update option.
  10. This is what it looks like when the correct font (YaHei UI) is set in the UI files.
  11. I'm the first person to complain about things like this. I agree, if there's something in place that should be updated, then it should get updated as required, not just on a whim. But as has been mentioned, this isn't the first or only place to get new releases - the main maxthon.com page is, which has dedicated pages for a changelog and downloads. The post here announcing the latest release also noted they were away... why it was updated on maxthon.com but not here isn't explained, but i'm guessing different people deal with both. Regardless, at worst you find out about the new release a few days later if you only visit here, or at best you have to visit maxthon.com and download from there instead of here. Either way, i don't think it's an issue of epic proportions...
  12. There isn't. It needs to be changed in the UI files. It's a simple fix, so there's no reason why they shouldn't get it done before the next release... But no guarantee that it will happen then, or any time after that...
  13. I'm pretty sure it's due to the different font that's being used. I tested with an older version of Chrome, and get the same as AaronX. If i'm not mistaken MX uses MS YaHei in most of the UI, I think Chrome uses Arial, or something similar. Using the same text copied from Notepad into MS Word: It's something related to the spacing of some of the special characters. It's not a fixed width font, but the spacing of the special characters seems to be double what it should be. Changing the UI font to use MS Yahei UI, instead of the base version should fix the issue as shown above.

    Menu > settings > advanced > Web page display. Make sure it's set to "default font" If that doesn't work, i'm not sure what else it could be. Maybe offer some details on the game you're playing.
  15. https://iview.abc.net.au/show/weekly-with-charlie-pickering Select any video to play, comes up with an "unknown playback error". Not related to ABP or my install, as tested with clean portable version and ABP on/off. Site recently transitioned from Flash to HTML5, so it's not related to Flash either.
