  1. Unwanted games on desktop !

    @tatankamani: Out of curiosity, do you use the Maxthon home page (http://i.maxthon.com/) that comes preinstalled with Maxthon? On Sunday night, the night before you posted, my wife had a string of attempted infections when visiting the Maxthon home page. They were blocked by her anti-malware program, and she cleaned them immediately. (Unfortunately, we were both on the run, and I didn't get to write down the name of the threat detected.) I'd guess they were rogue ads served through the AdChoice network, but that's pure speculation. We haven't encountered the issue again and your post is the first I've noticed here that may be related. Have you deleted your temporary and cache files in Maxthon? If not, be sure to hit CTRL+SHIFT+DEL in Maxthon and delete those, shutting down Maxthon afterward and restarting the computer to be sure you remove any trace of malicious scripting that may have slipped into those locations. I'd also recommend running a full malware scan. TrendMicro's Housecall may be a good place to start if you don't have or don't trust the anti-malware installed on your computer. (If something slipped by, it may be hidden from the local anti-virus software, which is why I suggest running an online scan, too.)
  2. It appears to be! I've tried on the same PCs I had trouble with before after in-place upgrades on two of the three, and both work like a charm under multiple accounts. (I'll confirm the third tomorrow, most likely.) I've been busy and skipped over 5.0.4.500, but according to the release notes, it looks like Team Maxthon may have fixed it there. Thanks for the help and feel free to mark this thread [RESOLVED].
  3. Thanks, @PHYR. That's interesting. I'll try an out-of-the-box install on a PC that's never had Maxthon on it tomorrow and see if I can replicate the issue there without logging into my existing Maxthon accounts (in case there's some setting conflict I'm dragging forward from install to install via my profile).
  4. I had tested it on different PCs and got the same result, then I tried testing it under different accounts, so I was pretty sure it was a either a Maxthon issue or a config issue. Looks like this is the culprit: When it's checked, trying to visit any URL saved in Maxnote/Favorites results in a crash. When it's unchecked, there's no problem. The issue continues in 5.0.3.3000 (for me, at least). I'd appreciate it if you guys could confirm or deny in your PC installs — although you may want to try it in the guest account, since I lost my QuickAccess settings on one attempt. (That could be a coincidence, but be careful.) I've edited the original post to include a video demo of the bug in action.
  5. How bizarre! It's been consistent for me across two machines on .900 and .1400. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- EDIT: And on 5.0.3.2000.
  6. Hi, all — I've just noticed Maxthon 5.0.3.900 crashes on CarGurus.com. Interestingly, the crash happens while entering the URL, before hitting the ENTER key — so perhaps there's some kind of pre-loading error? Tested on different PCs (where .900 fails consistently) and on Android (where the site loads fine). EDIT: Here's a video demonstrating the bug and its likely cause. I've also updated the title. See post #7 for more details.
  7. Occasionally, the address bar is entirely missing from QuickAccess, making navigation a bit tricky.
