  1. Extensions Can't be Loaded

    Check that syncing extensions hasn't accidentally been turned off in the sync settings.
  2. DraftKings Login issue

    Confirmed. you get an "enter a username" error if it's entered by using Passkeeper or entering directly.
  3. How to add MX4 Skins to MX5 V5.03.900 beta

    Doubt it would work, or might cause some issues seeing as there's quite a few differences in the default UI in MX5. Unless the skin was a complete UI update, I think it will have some problems displaying. Haven't tested though. This. Seems they've added support to allow using .mxskin files... now if only there was someone to create a skin...
  4. Decided to double check the fixes... and yes the ones marked in the image are fixed, yet the ones noted just below that (as quoted above again) are still not fixed. Does everything need to be an image and marked with the issues for things to change? Should it have been bolded? Bigger? Pink? *sparkles* and fireworks maybe? There's a saying in English - Do it once and do it right. I guess there isn't a similar one in Chinese?!? Give me access to the files and i'll do it directly instead of waiting 2.5 months for the job to not be done properly...
  5. [Script] Clear the Cookies of the current site

    Confirmed here as well.
  6. CTRL+B or Menu > View > Favourites bar
  7. Night Mode (MX4 style)

    Updated on the extensions site. Hopefully will be available on Monday ;-)
  8. Night Mode (MX4 style)

    just an update with this. Working on adding a settings page to adjust the colours. Code's a bit of a mess but does the job. But that's what happens when you learn as you go. Will hopefully have the updated version up within the next few days. Still haven't got around to seeing if it can be enabled on all pages. Might be next on the to do list.
  9. Probably not going to get a reply... but will give it a go and see what happens. I'm having trouble getting the "activate" parameter of the newtab function to work when the string is called from a variable. In: mxTabs.newTab({url:"url", activate:true, position:"afterCurrrent"}); when activate is set to true or false directly in that line it works fine. If I have a variable "openTab" set to true or false and called in that same line "activate:openTab" it also works. But if I have a variable "openTab" with a value set to true or false which is determined from some javascript, and then saved and called via the mx.storage api, it never seems to work and always defaults to "true". Doing an alert (openTab) or rt.storage.getConfig("openTab") shows that the string is correct. Getting quite annoying, as I know what I want to do and i'm pretty sure i've got it all right, but this just won't work.
  10. Official translator on Crowdin

    Ummm, you already are:
  11. Update? Also, on the Passkeeper lock screen there is a space after "welcome". This is due to a non-standard character being used as noted above. There is no translation string found for this on Crowdin. Fix it and add it to Crowdin.
  12. Export passwords

    Seems that might not even be possible. Chrome and Opera at least only show Firefox and IE when trying to import data.
  13. Export passwords

    I don't think Maxthon supports exporting passwords. If you're moving to another browser hopefully it can import them directly.
  14. Can't download tutorials

    This is what Google has for developers: https://developer.chrome.com/extensions This is what Microsoft has for developers: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/extensions/api-support/supported-apis This is what Mozilla has for developers: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons This is what Opera has for developers: https://dev.opera.com/extensions/ All the information related to extensions (and other stuff) is on their developer pages. Maxthon on the other hand, requires you to go to the extension/skins sites (not an issue), but then the links Maxthon Extension SDK / Beginner Tutorials / Submission and Update Process / Approval Criteria, all lead you to the MX forum... then you have to download a compressed version of a MS word file to access the info. We're in 2017, and this is a web browser company yet still making people do things in such a convoluted way like we're still in the 90's. No one is asking that it's as complex or in depth as the sites above. Just bring the info to the web where it should be. All the info in the forum posts mentioned above should be on this "MX developer site", and any competent coder should be able to convert those .doc files into a website relatively easily. That plus direct download links to the examples and the MXpacker. This is just one example of the "many are issues that could be updated fairly easily" but not done, mentioned by MaxthonGuy. This would take someone less than a few days to come up a perfectly workable site, and would rarely be needed to be updated (given how often that info has been in the past). And even when it does it's just a matter of updating those sections that's required, the same way the .doc file would have been updated anyway.
  15. Can't download tutorials

    Preaching to the choir there buddy! I've been forever harping on about exactly that... small things that can be fixed quickly and may never have to be touched till the next major update, yet they still don't change, update after update after update.
  16. Can't download tutorials

    I've asked that question countless times... never got an answer, It's just the way it is... Maybe one day they'll actually make a proper developer site for things like this, like all the browsers have. Their web design team put together the MX5 launch pages and revamped maxthon.com, but can't quickly knock up a small mini-site (1 or 2 pages) for SDK instructions and relevant downloads (or update the skins/extensions sites)!?
  17. Search Engine

    Does it happen on every search? Have you tried changing to another then going back to Bing? Does the same happen when you use the address bar to search? (enter your search term into the address bar, enter)
  18. Sooo do any MX5 skins exist?

    Why can't it be that simple? Many versions don't change anything, or just minor things like a text placeholder etc. Others completely change the code for UI elements. Just looking back at my current 4.9 skin to the 5.x skins, while things look similar on the outside, there's been quite a few changes of code behind the scenes. And in whichever version they change the names of the files, hopefully related to the talk of a proper skin system being put back in place. So it's hard to say what exactly needs to be changed, as it's not a case of changing a line that says "version=5.0.1" to "version=5.0.2" to make it compatible. It really does depend on what was changed. It might be just a text string placeholder, where you'll get the placeholder instead of the actual text. It might be a link to something outside of the HTML files which was moved/changed, in which case just renaming the files won't work, and you need to rewrite/update the code to allow for that.
  19. Upgrade skin to support MX 5.0.2

    You can try renaming the files. 0.dat > UIMain.dat 1.dat > UIHuge.dat No guarantee that it will work 100% or at all.
  20. Problems with facebook

    Looks like some infection, as Facebook or Maxthon shouldn't be doing that. Does the same happen on other browsers? Re-scan your system with kaspersky. Update Maxthon to the latest version http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/release-notes4.9/
  21. BlockADBlock

    Which page?
  22. This is a basic troubleshooting guide for users to try and find the cause of issues. Following the guide should allow you to hopefully fix the issue, or at least figure out the source that is causing it so that when posting on the forum users have more information available to offer help. 1 /Are you running the latest version of Maxthon? Check the forum for any new releases and update/reinstall. Most issues will generally be resolved in new builds, or just by the reinstall process. Also ensure you have the latest version of Flash and any other plugins you might be using. If an update/reinstall doesn't work, try doing a clean install which removes all userdata during the uninstall process. Your userdata will be restored if you are using a Maxthon Passport. If you're using a local/guest account, make sure you have a backup of your Maxthon userdata folder (Open an explorer window and type %appdata%\Maxthon5\Users\guest into the address bar). Keep a copy this folder, then copy it back once you have reinstalled. 2 /Do a forum search. Chances are someone has had the issue before you and a fix has been found. If you find a solution that works, reply in the thread so others know that it has worked for other users as well. 3 /Try changing to Retro Mode. A great feature of Maxthon that allows you to view a site using the Internet Explorer renderer in case the site has issues with Blink. Main Menu > Tools > Switch Browser Core, or press the lightning button on the right of the address bar so it changes to a blue e icon. 4 /Connection error? (Eg. unable to resolve domain name or can't connect error) try with another browser to see if it also has the same issue. Use a site like http://isup.me to check that the site is in fact online. Also check there isn't a problem with your DNS servers. You can try testing with Google ( or OpenDNS ( servers. And always provide a link to the site/page in question when posting so others can check to see if the problem is more widespread. 5 /Try disabling AdBlock Plus. Sometimes overly aggressive blocking can cause issues on a site. If this fixes the problem some of your rules may need to be revised. Post on the forum and someone should be able to offer a solution. 6 /Try deleting/clearing cookies. There might be a corrupt or invalid cookie causing the problem. Deleting them will ensure new ones are created. Option 1: (Ctrl-Shift-Del) or from the Main Menu > Clear Browsing Data menu option, or toolbar. [Images here] Option 2: To delete cookies for only one site you can use the Developer Tools. [Images here] Option 3: You can also use the following 3rd party programs: -CookieSpy#1 which can show Maxthon cookies, and DB Browser for SQLite which offer more advanced means of working with cookies. [More details here]NOTE: Only option 1 is recommended. Options 2 & 3 are only for advanced users. 7 /Try disabling all extensions. If disabling extensions fixes the problem then one of your extensions is causing the problem. Enable them one by one testing after each until you find the one causing the problem. 8 /Check the advanced options. Ensure you are using the default User Agent (should be unchecked), check with GPU acceleration on/off, and ensure that "Allow all sites to run plug-ins is enabled" if trying to troubleshoot a plugin related problem. These can be found by going to Main Menu > Settings > Advanced. If the above steps don't resolve the issue, follow the next steps which should help determine if the problem is with Maxthon, your account settings or system related and hopefully lead to the cause of the problem. 9 /Sign out of your Maxthon Passport. Check to see if the same problem still occurs. If not signing in fixes the problem, then it's more than likely a settings related issue. Disable all sync options from the menu then enable them one by one, testing for the problem until it occurs again. Once you know which settings are causing the issue make a post on the forum with the details for further assistance. 10 /Test with Maxthon Portable. Download & extract to any folder, run, check for the issue. DO NOT SIGN IN to your Maxthon Passport account. If this works then it's more than likely related to your install. Doing a clean install should fix the problem. If going through the above doesn't fix the problem, then start a thread on the forum to see if someone can help out. Offer as much information as you can, especially the following: - Any error messages; - What version of Maxthon and operating system you are running; - Any out of the ordinary programs (network related like firewalls, downloaders like Orbit, mouse or other hardware related utilities); - What you have tried to fix/find out what the issue was. Otherwise people will offer solutions that you may have already done; - And if applicable link some screenshots or video if it will make things easier for others to understand the problem. The best case scenario is you will find and fix the issue without having to wait hours or days for a response on the forum. At minimum you will narrow in on the issue allowing others to offer a quicker and more appropriate response for the problem. And you may learn something as well :-) Happy troubleshooting!
