  1. I don't think that's the solution. I'd dare say a good number of users would dismiss that and go about their business, and then come here/facebook etc to complain/ask the question anyway. There shouldn't be any need for explanation. It supposed to all happen automatically without any user intervention. Why they're actually only importing parts of the data i'm not sure. But the fact that it seems to work as described above without any issues that i'm aware of, it's somewhat annoying and confusing. I'm unsure why they've decided to hide the favbar by default, as i'm pretty sure it used to be enabled by default. I recall I always had to hide it when testing new versions. So either way you can't keep everyone happy. And your magic fill issue isn't related to magic fill. There's something wrong with the options css/html files which is why it looked weird and more than likely why it wasn't saving properly.

  3. Calculators on sites

    Can you post a screenshot of what it's supposed to look like? Checked on Opera and Edge, and both look the same as the MX5 page, but not sure if there is something that needs to be clicked or whatever.
  4. Using portable as well. Tested on a fresh version as well, still not working? EDIT: working now! Woohoo!
  5. So it seems Spotify have decided to update their web player to something that isn't as good as their old one, and just to top it off has issues running in Maxthon. Before the update it was flawless. If you open https://open.spotify.com/ you get the error Oooops, something went wrong with the playback. Reload at the top of the page. Reloading does nothing. Clicking the play button doesn't play anything, although you can still go through your music etc. Tested in Opera and it works fine. Now this is where it gets weird. With Opera still open, Spotify "seems" to run fine in Maxthon. I can play/pause change tracks no problem. Close Opera, then Maxthon doesn't work. What's weirder is that the music isn't actually being played from Maxthon (no sound icon on the tab) it's actually Opera playing the music, but being controlled via Maxthon (or through whatever web sync feature they have) UA changes don't help. Using Retro mode works (and using the old player!!). Just thought I'd throw this out there seeing as it's a somewhat weird issue.
  6. Go through this: http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/21475-maxthon-troubleshooting-tips-and-tricks/
  7. unlucky bad timing that there was something wrong at that time?!
  8. I get the Open in Desktop & Download Zip options. Clicking on the the zip option the file downloads. Check your ABP settings/ turn off to test. any random extensions etc
  9. As above, no issues. Downloads correctly. MX5.0.3.4000 portable
  10. Doesn't seem to have happened yet. Manually changing to the IE11 UA works (but not something i want to have set permanently), so i'm guessing that's the UA that's going to be pushed. Correct. Good to hear that something is happening
  11. WhatsApp in Maxthon 4

    I think he means screens as in the way the MX4 one worked. You could have different related sites on each new screen + groups. Compared to MX5 where you have them all on the one long screen + groups.
  12. Changing to MX5

    Your MX4 userdata should be in %appdata%\maxthon3. If you reinstall MX4 it should all be exactly as you left it. You can have both versions installed, just can't run both at the same time. As far as data that gets imported. I'm pretty sure when testing before doing my move to MX5, most data inc history and last session, searches etc were all imported. ALthough will need to follow that up to confirm. I'm using and testing with a protable version.. although that shouldn't make that much of a differenc.e
  13. The download progress icon was a nice option. Just one of the things that was dropped in the MX5 upgdate. maybe it might come back someday... Add the search box from the View menu in main menu. Or just don't worry about it and use the address bar to do the same thing...
  14. If you're using a passport account, uninstall Maxthon, then reinstall. When you sign in all the data should restore. (although given the below quote it seems you were using a guest account) If not, keep a copy of the userdata folder in appdata and copy it back once you uninstall/reinstall. So long as you have a backup of some description you shouldn't have an issue getting things back to where they were. But if you had a quick look around you would have found that the favbar was just hidden, CTRL+B or View > Shortcut bar to renable it. You don't need to logon - MX5 has a guest mode which is quite clear on the intro screen. You may not want all the new features, but just having a browser that is more current is the best feature of it.
  15. WhatsApp in Maxthon 4

    Any reason you can't just use favourites instead of QA? Personally I never saw the need for it. It's good for 1 page worth (5-10 sites) that you might visit regularly. This way you can quickly see them all at a glance and choose the one you want. But any more than that, and more so when grouped, it becomes more of a hassle and definitely not a quick means of accessing anything.
  16. Check that it hasn't been disabled from the View > Status Bar options in the main menu.
  17. If a dock is that important then there are plenty of options available - Rocketdock, ObjectDock, Winstep Nexus - from a quick google. But unless there's a way to isolate the Dock from the actual browser I don't think looking further into it is an option. And even so, SkyNotes is part of MX4, so even having the Dock available isn't going to fix the problem of having notes available. And because you can't run SkyNote without MX4, you also can't run MX5 as you can't have more than one Maxthon instance running. So it seems that online notes is the real issue. Moving to something that isn't locked down to a superseded browser is probably a better option. A quick search came up with simplenote.com/ Looks like a decent option and can be accessed by almost any device. Probably something that i'd be looking at if I wasn't using OneNote. As I see it you have 3 options: Stick with MX4.? and use everything as you have been with some issues on some websites knowing there (probably) won't be any major updates happening. Move to MX5 and change your workflow including some programs to account for it. (or if you can get all you notes into Maxnote, just use that) Move to another browser and keep using the Dock as you have noted. Just don't expect the dock to return any time soon. I thought I was the only one having this issue. Seems not so. It would be nice to figure out why that is the case - bad characters that can't be imported? or something else. Hopefully the MX dev's can look into this, as i'm sure anyone else in the same situation won't be happy.
  18. You can disable it from the menu. View > Sidebar You pretty much said why, sites don't complain that the browser is old etc. Should be reason enough. Change the Cortana box to just an Icon or remove it completely. You'll gain more taskbar space without losing any functionality of Cortana, Did you try this: But nice work figuring out how to get things working as you wanted. Now that you mentioned it I do recall the Dock actually being a separate program to the browser. So there's no need to worry about MX5 conflicting with the older version. Although are you using MaxNote in place of SkyNote now? or did you figure out something else to have that working as well?
  19. There isn't a "find in page" option from the context menu in MX5, but neither was there in MX4 as far as I could see. But you can add a gesture to open find which is the same as it always has been. To me the dock is just a duplication of the taskbar. So i'm unsure why most or all of those options can't be added to the windows taskbar. I'm not saying that is what you should do, just curious why that isn't an option. Only issue would be skynote/maxnote which would require some change of your processes to use. To me, moving to MX5 should have more benefits than sticking with MX4, if only for better website compatibility. But obviously your workflow may not allow that. Also remember that Maxnote can be popped out (Ctrl+G) like SkyNote did.
  20. Interesting to hear of someone who actually found the dock feature worth using. Find in page is there and does work though. You shouldn't. But remember that 4.4.8 (i think as Dock wasn't in 4.9 to my knowledge), is really old. Old core, no longer get updates. If it works for you keep using it. Just don't expect it to work well with some websites. Personally i'd be using something like OneNote, although I can see why SkyNote is your choice. It's clean, light and handy. Although OneNote is more fully featured and has the ability to work on any device without having to install MX on each one.
  21. Export Favorites Folder

    Yeah, not ideal. But when exporting to an IE fav folder you can just delete all the extra folders. And the HTML file should be easy enough to delete the extra folders as well. Would be nice to have the option though;.
  22. Changing to MX5

    Have a read through these threads: http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/forum/121-mx5-guidelines-tips/ Should explain most things. But in short, yes favourites will be imported. Yes, you skynotes will be imported, but now they're part of the favourites. The online time thing, i don't think is shown anymore in the browser, but may still be logged on your account. Either way it doesn't matter, as it's not somethign that is used for anything.
  23. Night Mode (MX4 style)

    I've ported the MX4 night mode extension into a standalone extension after looking into it after requests by users to bring it back. All credit to the original creators from the MX team. Known issues: Toolbar button may need to be clicked twice to manually enable/disable Night Mode if Auto mode is enabled. Toolbar icon no longer shows status. Changelog: 1.4.0 + Added Auto enable option (enables on new pages or on refresh) 1.2.0 + Added first run user prompt to check default settings 1.1.0 + Added default settings button + Minor settings page UI changes 1.0.5 + Fixed issue where only background colour was being applied 1.0.0 + Added Settings page 0.9.0/b2 + Icon now updates to show if enabled/disabled 0.5.0/b1 + Updated to work as a switch. Click to enable/disable 0.0.5/a + Initial release http://extension.maxthon.com/detail/index.php?view_id=3060
  24. Not sure what's happened, but now I can't even run it in Retro mode. Page seems to want to start as Ultra and can't change... just gets stuck. Have tried deleting cookies and it works for a second, then goes back to the above. Very, very broken.
