  1. Get rid of URL suggestions

    You didn't follow the instructions. It's not about the address bar dropdown, it's the search site results. left is normal session, right is a private session. Note the UK wikipedia link is blue in both. After visiting the UK wikipedia page in the private session (right), it shows up as visited in the normal session (left). This is using v5.3.8.700
  2. Get rid of URL suggestions

    This is normal. Means you can access previously used sites in private mode. I can't get anything typed into the address bar in private mode to show in normal. BUT!! What i have noticed is that Private mode saves cookies of site visits! Visit any wikipedia page in private mode, it won't show up in the history files as expected. Then do a search (google/bing etc) for that page. You'll see in the search results that the link to that page is highlighted as visited! Doesn't happen with Edge Dev, so will assume also any chrome clone.
  3. Get rid of URL suggestions

    Note the date of the original post!
  4. I'm pretty sure this shouldn't be happening, or at least not available for anyone to find. Plain text MX_LOG_XX.log files in windows' temp folder. Sample attached with URLs obfuscated. MX_LOG_11.log
  5. I suppose that's ok, but the issue was actually found in 5.3.8.600. probably should have mentioned that ... ooops.
  6. such as? if it makes you feel good...
  7. Parallel Beta Versions?

    That's always how it is and has been for ages. You release version 1.0, then work on 1.1. During that time there may be work going on for features in 1.2 or later, which may get released as a beta. It's not hard to decipher. That's not a bad idea to have an extra line stating it's a beta, BUT it already says it's a beta in bright red, and in the filename - I'm not sure how many extra times BETA has to be added in the description. Whether it's 5.2.x beta or 5.3.x beta makes no difference. If you don't want to get caught up with the issues a beta version could lead to, then you don't update/download to ANY beta version. There is except it's for pre-public release. Those that are enrolled in it can access it, but it requires that the MX guys actually utilise it properly. Unfortunately they have their own agenda which makes it effectively useless.
  8. netflix not working again

    True, but that's where you need to make the decision - do you want a browser that does the basics well with some foibles around the extra features? Or one that has issues with popular websites, but having better extra features. Only the user and their usage scenario can make that call. Vivaldi still has a lot of things that bug me, (eg. no new tab from enter on address bar, no media controls on popup videos, having to use an extension button to popout videos instead of the floatbar, super drag/drop isn't quite as good), BUT it's always up to date, UI that is as customisable as MX if not more, more extensions, chrome://flags is available, and more that i can't think of right now. About ~21mb, and it's returned to the system after the video is popped out. - RE: screen capture: it is basic, but i find myself going into a dedicated image editor 90% of the time even using MXsnap. One thing that it does do well is being able to automatically select windows/sections of apps, which i would miss. But i still have MX running till i import passwords etc. so still use Snap on occasion. Notes: haven't used it since SkyNote. Most things i put into sticky notes or OneNote these days. I feel that Vivaldi (~v2.3) has finally become what MX wanted to be. Sure MX does a few things better, but most unique MX features are in other browsers now and they do it almost as good, or do other things better to make the benefit a net loss, or even at best.
  9. netflix not working again

    Netflix/Facebook/Twitter/Spotify/youtube etc should work first go everytime. This is the internet for a majority of users. You stuff up that experience and you're already giving the user a reason to jump to another browser. Vivaldi.
  10. Folder length very short maxnote

    Edge and Vivaldi for 2. Agree. It's either an arbitrarily defined limit or an oversight. There's not really any reason why it should be limited to that.
  11. I've been forever complaining about some of the UI issues in MX. While things have improved since MX4, there are still some things out of place, or just plain not updated because of whatever reason. So in the same spirit of the Typo's, grammar issues etc... lets make a list! thread... here we go with MX UI issues...lets make a list!! Although somehow I don't think it will get the same response as the other thread... of which also has been somewhat slow to fix issues of late... So off we go... Lock button has text lower than the Security button A message about Chrome?? Not sure how this came up, nor have I seen it more than twice, but still i'll add it in Reader mode: The search bars are different in Maxnote and Passkeeper. In Maxnote - Colours are lighter, smaller text, different magnifying glass icon Choose one style and make them the same. Different heading style compared to downloader/ABP/clear browsing data/sniffer dialogs etc. FIXED - In QA setttings, "background" is cut off even though there is plenty of room for the (?) to be moved to the right: More to come... Once they've been looked at it would be nice if the UI could get a slight make over. Currently it's very static, buttons are either on/off, there's no movement. Add some animation (eg. fade in/out) when moving over tabs/buttons. Opening/closing tabs is very, very jerky compared to almost every other browser. The latest Firefox looks amazing, animation on hovering over the tabs, a colour flourish when a tab is loaded, animated refresh button, fades on menus. Even just the fade on the text in the tab bar when the titles are too long - it looks better than the ellipsis (...) that Maxthon uses. All very small things, but they complete the experience and makes the whole browser look very polished and complete. The new Maxnote style is nice. The animated drop shadows when hovering over items is a nice touch. Hopefully that starts making it's way into the rest of the browser over time.
  12. Maxthon vs. Fullscreen apps

    Yep it does make you cry doesn't it... Seems it's not fixed, the issue is back although doesn't seem to be as repeatable as it used to be. Might have been a one off or something. Given the number of posts of issues of the most recent beta, it seems the core upgrade has caused a lot of issues. Being a user who used to use MX everyday as my only browser, i've now gone to Vivaldi, using MX for various things like logins that i haven't moved over yet. But this bug could well be the one that pushes me right off the edge. It's just too annoying having to close the browser just to make something else work properly, even though that program isn't even at fault.
  13. Maxthon vs. Fullscreen apps

    Seems to be fixed in 5.3.8.300
  14. Maxthon vs. Fullscreen apps

    Not sure what the video will show, but anyways... 7sec Kodi.exe is started using a keyboard combination Video is selected and starts to play on 2nd screen (not shown) 21sec Maxthon.exe restores from being minimised to a window and steals focus NOTHING is pressed or done between 7sec > 21sec If Maxthon.exe isn't running Kodi.exe keeps focus as it should. From the focus detection program shown in the video: 41608:C:\Users\me\Desktop\focus\focus.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:30:14 2018 << FOCUS.exe started 6412:C:\Windows\explorer.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:30:16 2018 54016:C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\kodi.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:30:32 2018 << KODI.exe started No foreground application | Mon Dec 17 22:30:46 2018 1920:C:\Maxthon5\Bin\Maxthon.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:30:47 2018 << MAXTHON.exe steals focus!!! 18592:C:\Users\me\AppData\Local\WebLaunchRecorder\Screen Recorder Launcher.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:31:09 2018 1920:C:\Maxthon5\Bin\Maxthon.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:31:12 2018 18592:C:\Users\me\AppData\Local\WebLaunchRecorder\Screen Recorder Launcher.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:31:12 2018 41608:C:\Users\me\Desktop\focus\focus.exe | Mon Dec 17 22:31:48 2018 Recording #1.mp4
  15. Maxthon vs. Fullscreen apps

    been having this issue as well of late. Very annoying!
  16. buttons need to be moved right to allow for revised strings. Should also help with other languages.
  17. known since September!!! http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/22756-mx-ui-issues-lets-make-a-list/&do=findComment&comment=125855
  18. Neither string highlighted below are in the crowdin translation list. The patterns of favorites display should be Display favorites as... Only display the icon should be Display icon only Due to the way the menu is shown, i'd change the options to Title only, Icon only, Icon and title. No need to repeat display as it doesn't add anything to it.
  19. In Passkeeper security info: Make the question tabbed in line with the answer Use the correct apostrophe so there's no weird spaces in words. There's more than just those marked below. Just had another look: Last line first question should be "to ensure your password information is secure". 2nd question should be "won't be affected by changing devices" 3rd "please change to a more complicated password..." Sigh...And there's probably more...
  20. Looking for the Author of RoboForm Lite

    Yes Nothing, it's just another option for those that don't want to use the built-in Maxthon version.
  21. Another one... still no fixes for many of the above...
  22. Stylish for Maxthon and spying

    how interesting, and concerning. there's no reason why you can't unpack the extension and have a look at the code, even better if you've got the dodgy chrome version to compare against. As you said, many MX addons were user created/ported rather than official versions from the dev, so depending on how up to date the uploader kept it, it could still be safe. At this stage probably best not to use it if anyone is at all worried about these revelations.
  23. "Secret" should be changed to something more meaningful. Firstly, it sounds a little ominous, and I would imagine make some users question the browser all together. Secondly, what is displayed is a pretty generic disclaimer about third party software etc. So why the term "secret" was used as the link name i have no idea, and is way off the mark. And it seems it just shows a less well formatted version of the Maxthon EULA.
  24. SMS verification dialog is a mess. Text is all over the place, headings that aren't required. it's just wrong! revised... not amazing, but better.
