    My dear you are entirely wrong,

    Darling, there is someone that is wrong in this thread, and it isn't me.

    It was working normally before the above mentioned version was downloaded

    If working normally means keeping focus, then that would mean either 1/ there is something wrong with your version, 2/ you've done something with a 3rd party program to add that feature.

    Normal functionality is that it is only in focus when instigated via a command (menu option/keyboard shortcut/download prompt).

    I dont know why you are  not answering? 

    There's plenty of answers here, and the outcome is - it's working as intended.

    You have understood it.

    Yes, and we understand there is no problem.

    The issue is straightforward to understand,

    It seems we agree on what your alleged issue is, but don't agree that it's an actual issue because it's NEVER functioned as you describe.

    So either there's a communication breakdown here and we're talking about something else, or as noted above, you've done something to add that feature (possibly without knowing?!)

    I normally say repeating something doesn't make it true, but in this case i'll let that slide because what i'm saying is a bona fide verifiable fact:

    - MX downloader NEVER, EVER stayed in focus while downloads were running. EVER.

  2. Not sure what this guy is on about. 

    MX downloader has NEVER stayed on top. If you click the MX main window it always takes focus.

    The Downloader prompt will take focus once you click on a downloadable link, and subsequently the download manager. While the file is downloading, the manager doesn't stay in focus unless you explicitly click on the taskbar icon, use Ctrl-J, or the Downloads option from the main menu.

    There's no indication from the posts or images to show that the taskbar icon is not being displayed.

    Dear developers, please decide on the linear numbering of MX5 releases (including alpha, beta and RC), then this confusion will cease to be possible

    I don't believe there's any confusion, i think they have a system in place, just that maybe things get mixed up when they update the listings.

    Normally the last number will show if it's a beta/final version. RC's are normally tagged with RC.

    <1000 is beta, 1000 or 2000 is final. If there is going to be a .2000 release then there may be beta versions between .1000 > .2000 (eg.
    Bugfix releases generally get re-released under the same number (which they shouldn't but whatyougonnado?).

    5.2.7.x seems to be an odd one. In release notes, it's marked as beta, but tagged as RC in the filename. Then the final shortly after that. I think someone got confused with this one.

    Ideally they'd be a little more defined.  <800 beta, 900 RC, 1000/2000 final. Then any bugfixes between those get a small bump, so 921 is a RC with some fixes since 900, then released as 1000.

    Why downgrading on ?? Why should i download it ??

    You shouldn't look at when they're released, but look at the version numbers. If you're testing beta versions then stick with them. If not then stick with final versions. Definitely don't jump between them.

    If that doesn't make sense then probably best to just leave things as they are.

    then the logs lie - a user reported it gone - i checked and posted that i agreed - thats fact - how it shows in the logs or elsewhere is wrong 

    Thanks for proving me right.

    Originally I was going to post a screenshot of the log, but figured i'd be accused of editing it. But now apparently the logs don't "log". Well there you go. Maybe someone should let IPS know that their forum software (which is built on a database of logged entries) doesn't work properly.

    it might not have gone for you but for us minions it had

    Logs say nothing happened. The only threads deleted or hidden were NOT related to any of the x.x.x.300 threads.

    Think what you want, but nothing happened.

  6. Was never gone.

    I just used my eyes, found it in the unpinned threads and pinned it. Was still in the release notes as well.

    I've always been quite open about my thoughts of the browser and their processes, but seriously, the amount of conspiracy theories and constant digs on their "testing" is getting beyond ridiculous.

    5 random users "testing" a release 1 day before official release a "test team" it does not make. But yes, whatever internal testing they did failed big time on this release - but it is a beta(!) and a new core!

    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.

  8. Open a youtube video, detach the video, change to another tab. Wait a few seconds and the video will stop playing but the audio continues. Change back to the source tab and the video starts playing again.

    Pretty much defeats the purpose of detaching the video if it won't continue playing without the source tab in focus.

    On the plus side, it seems now videos are disabled from playing by default. Nice feature finally introduced.

    The New download dialog box pops up,

    It's been a while, but i'm pretty sure that's what happens when the quick option is enabled on a new install but hasn't been set by the user (because for some stupid reason the dev's decided to enable that option by default and set it to a stupid F: drive IIRC, that also doesn't show in the field in settings).

    Per the link, enable/disable and it should fix the problem.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

    and what happened with Passkeeper?

    Nothing, it's just another option for those that don't want to use the built-in Maxthon version.

  13. 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.

  14. "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.


  15. Being unable to comment has been like that for ages. Was answered by a bug* when i questioned it some time ago. Apparently something to do spam i think, so they disabled comments to counter it.

    As for does it work? Well depends on what you deem "work" means. It does show and allow you to download the available extensions. In that respect, yes it does work. As for a means of being a place for user feedback - it's now useless, and developer information - it has never been any good for that.

    Now I hope MX Team just preparing big update for Extensions Center

    While that would be something to hope for, i really, really, really don't think that's happening. Nothing has been done on the site for years. They have no intention of adding any developer info to the site despite the feedback given.

    They want to be seen as something more than the other browsers, but they can't even offer something as simple as a decent website with a nicely laid structure for developer information.

    I've said it before, it would take a decent coder 1/2 a day to add what is currently in the SDK documents into a workable, easily navigable, searchable website. But apparently that's not a priority. Instead the extension sits there dormant with almost nothing of note added ...
