  1. It is indeed pretty sad that you HAVE to use a BETA version instead of a FINAL / STABLE version if you want to watch one of the most popular video sites on the Internet. I'm surprised that YouTube works in the current final "stable" version. At the moment is the version which is downloaded from the main Maxthon site by visitors. So people who download Maxthon from automatically get the version which they can't use to watch Netflix. This is pretty crazy if you think about it. Of course I will not install BETA. I just moved from 5.3.8.x to 5.2.7.x because BETA has issues of its own (I already posted about a BUG with snap tool). So whichever version I use, I will have problems in any case. That's just normal for this stupid Maxthon. These things are the reason I don't actively recommend Maxthon to other people.
  2. I have really gotten used to treating Maxthon as a second-class browser. Every time I try something new, I automatically say to myself "I better try this in Chrome or Firefox because Maxthon will probably not work". And sure enough, I registered on Netflix, logged in and tried playing a video. Immediately I got an error page on Netflix saying that the browser is not supported. It's really sad. Nothing ever goes smoothly with this browser. It seems the most incompatible browser that I use.
  3. I primarily use Windows 7 Pro 64-bit which is where I had this problem. I did not test it on Windows XP. But now I installed over both on Win 7 and Win XP and it works OK, so I'm not using anymore.
  4. So I've reported this bug a few versions ago and it seems it's still not fixed in When I use the Snap tool to try and take a snapshot of a portion of my screen, Maxthon hangs and I have to use the Task Manager to regain control of my computer and kill maxthon.exe. One way to reproduce the issue: 1. open a website 2. click the Snap tool in upper left portion of Maxthon 3. select a region with your mouse 4. click "cancel" (the red X button) I then installed over and so far this works.
  5. I can confirm that digital certificates work again in the current official / final "install version" After 5 months I can finally upgrade Maxthon again. It's funny though ... nothing is mentioned in release notes / changelog. Thanks for actually pursuing this and fixing it. I admit I did not expect it after such a long time.
  6. beta is still broken. It tries to "see" the certificates but it can't find them. The error message "No certificate available" is displayed. I don't unserstand how it's possible that they broke this feature and now they don't know how to fix it. Maxthon worked with certificates for years, and now all of a sudden there are unfixable problems ? How ? Why ?
  7. So, any news ? Has this issue with certificates been fixed yet ?
  8. Wow, with everything that was said in this topic, it's unbeliveable to see that they actually don't seem to even know what digital certificates are, how they work, or what the problem is. Don't they have certificates in China? This is incredible! And it's really weird that nobody else complains here about it. Don't people use certificates? Or maybe they use old MX 5.1.x.xxxx versions. I'm forced to use and when this gets outdated I'll be FORCED to stop using Maxthon. I never thought this is how I will leave this browser. BugSir006, to ask somebody for his certificate is the same as asking for his username & password. Please don't do that! It's inappropriate!
  9. Like I wrote in one of my previous posts, you can't just "test" this problem on some random site. I can give you a link to my online bank, but since you don't have a certificate for it, you will always see the error page, in all browsers: I do have a certificate for this online bank so when I visit this page, Maxthon should display a certificate window or it should take me to the log-in page. But it doesn't. It shows me the error page, exactly like you see it. You can only test this problem yourself if you have your own digital certificate for some website (online bank, healthcare website, ...). Like I said before, Maxthon does not see the certificates on the PC, so you can't use Maxthon to log-in to those websites. Without fix, Maxthon is unusable.
  10. This is still not fixed in ? Terrible. But it's exactly like I said in my last post on April 18th! They will not fix this. So this browser is basically dead. It cannot be used anymore for on-line banking or any other websites which require digital certificates. All versions after are useless.
  11. People just don't get it, even when you write it down to them black on white. That's why it's so hard to get a bug report across! The problem is not with loading the pages themselves. The problem is with logging-in with certificates, or more precisely .... with Maxthon 5.2.x.x not seeing the certificates on your PC. When you try to log-in to those specific sites which require a certificate, you will get an error, because Maxthon will not see the certificate on your PC and will not present it to the website. The website will therefore show you an error message, claiming that you don't have a required certificate installed. This will happen in any browser if you don't have a certificate that the page recognizes on your PC. So if you're just "somebody" on the other side of the world and you don't have a certificate for that particular bank for example, you will always get an error in any browser. The problem is that the users who do have the correct certificate on their PC cannot log-in because Maxthon 5.2.x.x doesn't see that certificate on the PC and so can't log-in to the website. NOTE, again, we're talking about the Ultra Mode here. The Retro Mode seems to work and in Retro Mode Maxthon 5.2.x.x does see the certificates. Just not in Ultra Mode.
  12. still does not work with certificates in Ultra Mode! And the focus problem is also still present (it keeps getting focus when working with other programs). Going back to for the third time. And I have a feeling these bugs will never be fixed (at least the focus one, since nobody confirms it, even though it's clear as day, and not present in older 5.1.x.x versions).
  13. I think the problem is that Maxthon somehow does not see the certificate I have on my PC (Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit). And this started happening immediately after I updated Maxthon to When I try to visit one website which requires a certificate identification, I get the error "Invalid Certificate". Another website is apparently more "intelligent" and it tells me what no certificate was found on PC. So it looks like Maxthon does not detect certificates on my PC. That "Windows Security" - "Select a Certificate" popup window does not appear, and so I can't select the certificate and the website does not load. I don't know why this happened and how to fix it. I now have to use other browsers to access my on-line banking and other sites. It sucks.
  14. Yesterday I got a notification from Maxthon that a new version is available ( so I updated the browser and restarted it. Since then I am having problems visiting the websites which require my digital certificate to log in, such as my on-line bank. When I visit the website, it tells me that no certificate was found on my computer and I can't log in. So what happened in the upgrade? Why doesn't Maxthon see my certificate anymore? Or maybe it does "see" it but it doesn't present it to the website correctly? On my bank website I can see the green padlock icon on the left side of the URL/address bar and if I click on that padlock I see the "View Certificate" link and if I click on it I can see the certificate details and everything looks good and valid. But the website itself still says "no valid certificate detected". What's going on ? I tried it with Google Chrome and with Internet Explorer and both of those browsers detected the certificate on my PC and allowed me to select it so I could log-in to my bank. Only Maxthon is having problems. I have already restarted it but it didn't help. Any tips on what I can do ?
  15. 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 ?
