    I tried to test this issue but cannot confirm.

    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.before visit.png

     

    After visiting the UK wikipedia page in the private session (right), it shows up as visited in the normal session (left).visited.png

    This is using v5.3.8.700

    This happens in 5.2.7.2500, if I write in the address bar, it shows me the results of my history and my favorites. And as you see it is a private tab.

    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.

    And this is a big "but", all those tools (except maybe the split window tool) suck! maxthon is way way way more ahead in that branch, and that difference is clearly visible when you open the screenshot tool or the notes tool, for example...

    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.

    using an extension that pop up the video for you, wich is a pain and it takes ram...

    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.


  4. 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.

    What other browser offers something like that? 

    Vivaldi.

    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.


  6. 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!!!

  7. 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.

    What is the Roboform for?

    Yes

    and what happened with Passkeeper?

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

  9. 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.


  10. "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.

  11. 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.


  13. 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.
