  1. I have upgraded Flash Player (23.0.0.207) on my Windows XP 32-bit PC and copied the file pepflashplayer32_23_0_0_207.dll to Maxthon\Core\Blink\plugins\pepflashplayer.dll as I usually do. The problem is that now my Maxthon 4.9.4.2000 says "Could not load plug-in." when I go to "http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/". I had to revert back to old DLL version 22.0.0.192 which still works in Maxthon on my WinXP PC. So, does anyone have any definitive information about this? Will Maxthon 4.9 support new Flash plugins on Windows XP ?
  2. google maps - big freezes

    I can confirm this issue. I have had it myself as well in 4.9.3.1000, but it is not constant. Sometimes opening Google Maps and dragging & zooming the map around works really really slow, like 1 frame per second, as if CPU is at 100% (but it's not). Then a few moments (sessions?) later it becomes smooth again, etc. It is not an issue of busy CPU or anything like that, but I haven't been able to determine what exactly is causing this. By the way, some options / functions were removed in Maxthon 4.9.x branch, like split-view and probably GPU acceleration, that's why you can't find it in Settings. Some functions will be restored in Maxthon 5 but I'm not sure at this moment if GPU acceleration will be one of them.
  3. YouTube full-screen video playback bad

    OK, I think I have found out what is causing the problem. On Windows 7 you can personalize your computer / desktop with different "Themes". There are "Aero themes" and "Basic and High Contrast Themes" available in Control Panel -> Personalization. I personally use "Windows Classic" theme which is a part of "Basic and High Contrast Themes". In this theme (and other "Basic and High Contrast Themes") Maxthon 4.9.3.1000 does NOT work good in full-screen video playback. But if I select any theme from "Aero Themes", then MX 4.9.3.1000 will work OK in full-screen video playback. I don't know if Windows 10 has similar themes but in Windows 7 this is how it is. So apparently MX 4.9 series has changed something so that it doesn't work correctly with non-Aero themes in Windows 7 !
  4. YouTube full-screen video playback bad

    It looks like the newest Maxthon 4.9.3.1000 kind of doesn't "lock-in" the full-screen mode. When you go to full-screen mode in YouTube, the taskbar is still visible. So it seems like Maxthon doesn't enter full-screen mode properly and that is why it doesn't play smoothly. I have uninstalled MX 4.9.3.1000 and installed the old MX 4.4.3.1000 and that version works good in full-screen. So there is definitely a bug with this in the current 4.9.3.1000 version. Maybe this bug only appears on some computers (in my case on 2 different Windows 7 computers) but the fact is, it is a bug. I just hope they fix it since this is one bug I really can't live with.
  5. OK, it seems I finally figured it out by myself. I used to download and install the newest Maxthon version from the homepage which was a 1.5 MB file called "mxsetup.exe". I figured that was just an "on-line" type of an installer. That one ignored the custom install path. Then I downloaded the full 45 MB installation package "mx4.9.3.1000.exe" and this one worked correctly. It installed in the custom install folder and the installer itself also had a different logo picture. Damn, what a hassle. They should remove that buggy on-line installer from the main website. Sigh.
  6. Can some developer test this ? I am now having this problem on yet another separate PC (this time Windows 7). Maxthon will always install into "C:\Program Files\Maxthon\" even if I specify a different destination folder while installing the program. It's extremely annoying! Any solution for this ???
  7. YouTube full-screen video playback bad

    It does play in fullscreen-mode but isn't as SMOOTH as in windowed-mode. You can see it being slightly jerky. I have tested it on 2 different Windows 7 computers with different ATI graphics cards and the problem is present on both PCs. Again, Firefox works good. Maybe it's something that is specific to the two computers I tested on but since Firefox works fine, that means Maxthnon could too, if it was fixed.
  8. YouTube full-screen video playback bad

    You can see it well on drone videos, for example:
  9. Maxthon 4.9.3.1000 I noticed that YouTube videos playing full-screen in HD (720p or 1080p) are all jittery with missing frames and slightly desynced audio/video, in other words, playback is not smooth (HTML5). I tried vasrious older versions like 4.9.2.1000 and 4.9.1.1000 (portable editions) and those have the same problem with YouTube. I tried Firefox and of course, that one worked perfectly. I then turned on Retro Mode and that seems to have helped. So, is Ultra Mode broken for full-screen YouTube HD playback in 4.9 Maxthon branch ?
  10. Cannot rate on IMDB - Maxthon 4.9.3.1000

    Yes, I have Adblock Plus turned off always.
  11. I noticed that I cannot leave a star rating on IMDB.com with Maxthon 4.9.3.1000 in Ultra Mode. When I click on a "Rate This" and select a star, nothing happens. If I change to Retro Mode then it will work. OS Windows 7 and Windows XP.
  12. I'm using Windows XP SP3 and I have only now noticed that I have Maxthon installed on C:\ even though I install all my apps on D:\ Looks like some previous version of Maxthon already started ignoring my custom set installation folder. I installed the current version which is 4.9.3.1000 and even though I set the installation path to "D:\Programi\Internet\Maxthon\", the browser ignored this and installed itself into "C:\Program Files\Maxthon\". I uninstalled it again and even selected to clear all user data, but when I tried to re-install, the program again ignored my custom destionation and went into "C:\Program Files\Maxthon\". I don't know when this started happening or what is causing the installed to ignore my custom destination folder. Any ideas on how to make it go into "D:\Programi\Internet\Maxthon\" ?
  13. Some more clarification: Retro mode does not work either, UNLESS I use "Enable standard rendering in Retro Mode" in Settings. I have popup blocker and Adblocker Plus disabled.
  14. OK this bug is OLD and still not fixed so after a long time I finally decided to post it here cause it's severely debilitating. Basically Instagram embedded images on various websites do not work. For example, here is a local news website which often embeds Instagram images and I cannot view them with Maxthon 4.4.8.1000: http://www.24ur.com/ekskluziv/tuja-scena/elizabeth-hurley-se-sonci-zgoraj-brez.html Other web browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) work fine. Switching modes (Webkit / Trident) does not make a difference.
  15. Cannot change skin

    That worked. Thanks Magdalene.
