  1. Website not opening

    Update: I think I might have had the core set to Retro Mode. I switched it to Ultra Mode and now it seems to work.
  2. Website not opening

    Upgraded to and the problem is still there for me. Videos on don't play. Only the advers before the video play, but when the advert is over, the main video should start playing, but it doesn't and the advert repeats instead. It looks like Maxthon doesn't load the video player. I have no idea why. I'm on Windows 7 64-bit. I then tried Maxthon on the same PC and that version works fine. So it looks like something is wrong with Maxthon and later (at least on my PC). But what?
  3. Website not opening

    Did you try with ? I think this version has problems. I could play it with a different version as well, just not with which appears to be the latest, at least I get a "Your browser is up to date." message when I click on About.
  4. Website not opening

    The website now opens again, but I am now having problems playing videos on it. For some reason only the ads play, but the underlying main video never starts playing. But it does in Chrome. It's not in English but I think you should be able to test it out for yourself, just try playing the video. Do you get to see the video or are you constantly "locked" in the ads as well ?
  5. I'm using Maxthon and I am having a problem opening a website which was recently updated. It still opens fine in Chrome but not in Maxthon. Can anyone confirm ?
  6. I have been having this issue for a while now with several different Maxthon versions, so I decided to post. Currently I am on Whenever I download some large files (like 400 MB or larger), the downloaded file will always be corrupt. I am then forced to download it through another browser (Google Chrome). In both cases the downloaded file is of the same size (down to a byte), but when compared bit-by-bit with file comparing tools, I can see there are "blank" segments (like "zeros") in the middle of the file that was downloaded with Maxthon. So obviously something happens that makes Maxthon "choke" and corrupt the file while it is downloading it. Has anyone else noticed this ?
  7. I have upgraded Flash Player ( 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 says "Could not load plug-in." when I go to "". I had to revert back to old DLL version 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 ?
  8. google maps - big freezes

    I can confirm this issue. I have had it myself as well in, 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.
  9. 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 does NOT work good in full-screen video playback. But if I select any theme from "Aero Themes", then MX 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 !
  10. YouTube full-screen video playback bad

    It looks like the newest Maxthon 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 and installed the old MX and that version works good in full-screen. So there is definitely a bug with this in the current 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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 ???
  13. 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.
  14. YouTube full-screen video playback bad

    You can see it well on drone videos, for example:
  15. Maxthon 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 and (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 ?
