  1. 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.
  2. Happens very rarely for me. A refresh (F5) always fixes it.
  3. Forced Auto-update?

    That's why I was asking. Odd that they'd "update" you to an older release if your version was one of the new core beta versions. Looks like they still have some testing to do on how to detect what/how to update what
  4. Forced Auto-update?

    ?? are you sure about that ?? some version numbers please
  5. PDF open on MX

    Unchecking the option in settings > advanced > Default file type > file type association settings > pdf should allow it to be downloaded. BUT in my version at least it still opens in the MX viewer
  6. MX5 PC Beta Release

    Like it would matter. half the time things aren't even on there... eg. broken spotify... no mention. fixed spotify... no mention
  7. Annoying Shortcut Error Window

    it's not, it's mx5. it's supposed to be a verification of the shortcut to ensure that it hasn't been compromised by any malware that opens up a dodgy site etc.
  8. MX5 PC Beta Release

    my testing shows that it just won't update. Update was found yesterday, restarted and it's the same version. Now the update check just goes on forever. The new files are in the appdata folder ready to go. I guess it's a good way for users to manually do an autoupdate? They get notified, but allows them to copy the files over if they want? haven't tried that yet though.
  9. Annoying Shortcut Error Window

    what happens if you delete the mx5 created icon and make a new one by drag/drop?
  10. MX5 PC Beta Release

    That's your choice as well. use portable, just better...
  11. 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.
  12. Website not opening

    working now. You may have started the download before it was completely uploaded. seems they're really pushing out a few builds of late...i wonder whats going on?
  13. MX5 PC Beta Release

    hmmm could it be they finally got auto updates working properly?
  14. V won't start

    One is the main stable release (5.1.x), slightly updated with some bugfixes. Most users should stick with this version. Other is a beta release for the updated core. It's not unusual to be working on two (or more) versions concurrently. Best example at the moment is Windows. They're getting ready for a new release next month, but internally they're already working on the next version to be released in 6 months. Skip ahead insiders have had access to this for the past month.
  15. MX5 PC Beta Release

    portable doesn't get auto updates
  16. Issues with postings?

    try again now
  17. Due to the lack of posts in the international section of the forum, all languages will be combined into one forum which can be used for any non-English language. Posts can still be made here in any language. Due to the aforementioned lack of user posts and moderator languages, do not expect any support in a timely manner, or at all depending on the language. Note that depending on future posts (or lack thereof) this section may be closed completely. It is recommended that users post any issues in the English support section in English. If that is not possible, then your native language with a copy/paste of a Google translation. If you have any issues with this change, please post below (in English). The Maxthon Moderator team.
  18. link to site (or another one) so we can see the problem?
  19. There's some comments made on some of the extensions i've uploaded, but i can't reply to them because any comments i make disappear into the magic world of the internet. I've sent a support request via the site to MX support... but apart from an auto-reply which was useless there has also been no response... seems that got lost as well. So last resort... can someone please explain why it seems no one cares about the support aspect of the browser and how it looks for the company as a whole, or how that looks to end users?
  20. Flashing when changing tabs

    I mentioned it before. apparently not an issue...
  21. iframe displays black box

    Blocked by ABP. Add @@ad* to your custom filter list for that site.
  22. Can't resize less that 1000px

    So you find a way to fix the problem. That's nothing more than an excuse. The solution is already half there. When the window size is reduced you add the enabled extensions to the hidden extensions dropdown... because they're now hidden! The decision was made a while ago to only show the top level domain in the address bar, so 50%+ is wasted space in 90% of websites. Despite that decision being reverted since, when using a smaller window anything beyond the TLD probably isn't a huge concern to the user. Even MX mobile hides the URL completely unless you're actually typing an address into it. Changing the minimum address bar width from ~700px as it is now to 350-400px, and doing the above with extensions should allow the minimum browser width to be closer to around 800px. Still not great, but at least closer to 1/2 the size of most widescreen resolutions.
  23. Can I uninstall Adblock Plus?

    I don't think it can be removed from MX4? Update to MX5 and remove as shown above.
