  1. Has there been an explanation as to why Maxthon won't let the window be resized to less then 1000px? Very annoying when you're trying to use Windows' snap feature and things aren't snapping to what you expect because MX doesn't want to co-operate. All the other browsers seem to have no problem being resized to 500px, and some even down to ~270px.
  2. Can't resize less that 1000px

    OMG, this has finally been fixed in the latest internal release. Seems it can be resized down to about 750px, not as good as some of the others, but better so long as you don't use a very low resolution. Hopefully it won't be long for this to go public.
  3. 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...
  4. Why this link shows blank?

    That's just a notification page explaining that yahoo is now part of the oath: group. Click blue button and it'll take you to the actual page. You should be able to read the english version by going to yahoo.com if you haven't already been there.
  5. Why this link shows blank?

    check the usual: ABP, extensions, ultra/retro etc... All in the troubleshooting thread pinned on the front page.
  6. 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.
  7. MX5 PC official Release 5.2.2.1000

    Seems fine here now. May have been fixed since... or a random issue...
  8. Some issues

    i'd try a reinstall.
  9. i'm guessing you're in russia. As i recall Russia blocked a huge number of IP addresses belonging to Google and Amazon to stop the use of the Telegram app in the country. Maxthon does use some amazon IP's if i'm not mistaken. So at this stage i'm guessing that was the cause. Short of using a proxy, maxthon using another service for their servers, changing russian users to use a different server, or Russia restoring the colossal screwup in blocking the IP's, you don't have many options.
  10. Permission to use Browser???????

    Assuming you're only using the installer version they should all be in c:\program files (x86)\maxthon
  11. again, you've lost me... if you open with the command line then MX should start with the site specified opened in a new tab. Or open a new tab within the already open browser. You may need to elaborate on what and how you are doing it.
  12. Permission to use Browser???????

    Can people please learn to use the enter key... most of the posts in this thread are very hard to read,. As you should. if using the installer, there's no need to do anything more then start and follow the instructions. If users want to delete all data/create new folders/stand on their head, then that's their choice. So long as MX5 is selected as your default, then that's all that should be required. If it's still doing that, then there's another issue. not sure why that would be. Check your installed programs and see if there's more than one MX5 installed. If you're using a passport account, i'd be tempted to delete ALL instances of MX5 and reinstall. You can have 20 browsers installed, it shouldn't matter.
  13. why won't there be a tab available?
  14. Permission to use Browser???????

    That means that it's not set. The checkbox in your image shows that MX should check if it's the default, it doesn't show that it is the default Press the "Set maxthon browser as default browser" button above it and it should fix the issue... but as No1 mentioned above, W10 can be a little finicky with this for some strange reason. That said, I haven't had this issue, but others seem to, and it doesn't seem to affect other browsers. So I think it's an MX issue as much as a W10 one.
  15. Acount reset

    If your old maxthon version is still installed or you use a passport account it should import all your settings and userdata automatically on first run or when you sign in.
  16. Downloading images from 9gag.com

    WebP is google image format apparently. Made for better compression but the same image fidelity at the equivalent file size. In my testing any browser using the chrome engine (eg. chrome/maxthon/opera) all save as webp files. FF and edge don't because they use their own renderer. If you want to save as jpg in MX then change to Retro mode. You could also use a conversion program, but 1/ i think the quality could be questionable given how they might work 2/ it's an extra step compared to just using retro mode.
  17. Can't resize less that 1000px

    yes.... merged with previous thread
  18. Using any of the following works: maxthon https:\\www.yahoo.com maxthon www.yahoo.com maxthon yahoo.com Anything that's not a valid address should go to the default search that's set in MX. Is IE or Maxthon set to default? Not sure what automation you're talking about, but if it relies on the default browser being set to IE then it should be set as such.
  19. link to file/s for others to test?
  20. Delete Maxthon account

    hmmm a mass exodus...
  21. HDCP issue with MX5.2.1.x versions

    I know, but it doesn't mean that HBOgo Asia see it like that. They can restrict it however they want... and it seems that HK isn't part of their China.
  22. HDCP issue with MX5.2.1.x versions

    Doesn't matter. If it's restricted by region then it won't work unless you use a proxy or have some other means to work around it. It helps to determine the cause. Right now it's "a HDCP issue" which could involve a number of things along the pipeline that HDCP encompasses. Running on their own system means they can debug any other internal errors they find. Seeing as it was working on previous versions it might be a setting that wasn't updated in the latest core update.. similar tp the spotify one that i had a while ago.
  23. From your image, toolbar is more commonly known (and named by Microsoft) the taskbar. System bar is the system tray.
  24. he did mean the taskbar looking at the screenshot. But the options you mention are only for the system tray.
