    (Only passkeeper needs to be resolved. Does anyone asked on Vivaldi forums for passkeeper converter?)

    Highly doubt that would happen. Pretty slim chance someone would have gone to that effort for a browser as small as MX. Another reason why sticking with the big5 is good, as there's generally some degree of common data exchange between them.

    Apparently someone found a hacky way to manually copy them. So you'll have all your passwords, but will just have to manually enter them. Will post the info if i can find it.

    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.


  3. 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

  4. 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.

  6. 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.


  7. "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.

  8. 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 ...

    Ok, if I have never had a problem with fonts of any kind, why would I go looking for a setting to change something and create a problem? 

    You wouldn't, nor was it ever implied that you should if you didn't have the problem.

    Seems you're the only one making more of this than what there is. There was a problem, a new setting change seems to be related to it, reset it and it's all back to normal.

    thats how they seem to work - add something that nobody wants whilst old bugs go on

    While there's some truth to that, i don't think we need to turn this thread into another "they don't listen to us" thread.


  10. had the same happen. 

    it's due to the new font sizing feature they added.

    Go to settings > Advanced, Web page display. For page font size, select Medium (even if it is already), and it should fix itself. Reset to default should fix it as well.

    Must be some sites reading the setting differently initially or something.

    Don't people use certificates

    I don't imagine it's an overly common thing to do, at least not in the mainstream. Possibly more so with those in certain fields or those with the desire to add an extra level of security.

    But that's just an assumption.

    I'd say you're using the wrong browser if you want many/any higher level features or options. As a basic browser Maxthon is great, if only for the number of default features available. But when it comes to the more advanced options/features it falls way short of almost every other browser out there.

    It's quite possible it was working previously because it wasn't removed/disabled/broken. But the reason it's not getting fixed is because the feature has been removed/disabled/broken but they're unsure of how/why?? don't know... interesting though,...

    why chrome has SDK when firefox is already on market?

    Because Chrome has the backing of Google behind it, which has in turn made it the biggest browser in the market. Maxthon isn't, and won't be, the next Chrome.

    Because of that, forcing developers to create content that only a minute number of users will be using isn't viable. Which is why you don't see many of the big addons on the other browsers on Maxthon.

    While it's great that there are Maxthon specific API's, if a dev isn't willing to put the time in to use them it's not really a feature to talk up.

    While not a feature, the Youtube Centre addon for Maxthon never had the icon display correctly. All that was required was to copy the icon files to the correct folder in the addon. But even that was too hard for the dev. So to add other specific API's is a bit of a stretch.

    Maxthon still doesn't have something that will draw users to allow for a more viable addon platform.
