  1. Jeff, there is much to say, but I'm working on a project in our bathroom right now. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can and attempt an exhaustive--if I can manage that-- critique of MX5. It has some great features, but the user interface is as poor as I've seen in 30 years of reviewing software, and the attention to detail is so lacking, I'd think a user would conclude the whole program must have been slapped together. One question for now, though: Do you have a quality control person? Ron
  2. It used to be I could use LastPass and Password Key simultaneously. But now, as others have pointed out, LastPass doesn't work with MX5. And that's with the latest version of everything. And PassKeeper doesn't work. Or at least I assume it doesn't work because I can't find any way to use it or any instructions on how it's supposed to work or how I'm supposed to add passwords and get PassKeeper to fill them at appropriate sites. I have something like 400 passwords in PassKeeper, so it's not for the lack of words to use. It's because it's not intuitive and there are not instructions, at least not where a normal human would look for them. Jeff, man, you can build the greatest browser in the world--and I think you may have--but if you don't include clear instructions that are easy to find, and if, from version to version, you move buttons and features all over the place for no obvious reason, and if extensions stop working with Maxthon, and if you can't fix the grammar mistakes on your English pages and screens--mistakes that make MX5 look downright amateurish--then no matter how many great ideas and how much work you put into Maxthon, if you neglect the basics, it's going to fail. ron,

  4. If someone were to go through all the English and correct the mistakes, what are the chances of them reaching the actual product?

      Pretty good. Here's 2 threads i started related to such things. While it has taken some time to finally get to it, they have recently been updated.

      If there's more just post in the relevant thread and it'll be done at some stage.

  5. Thank you, vice admins. I'm glad to see it's somewhere, but why fix something that ain't broken?
  6. One of the options of right clicking a tab used to be to copy the tab's URL or both the URL and the name for the page. It's disappeared-- or at least moved without leaving a forwarding address. This is the type of snafu that is most irritating. I could understand it if the developers did have the time to add an entirely new feature. But this feature was already there. They just had to leave it alone, not go to the trouble of deleting it. I don't understand these things.
  7. Can't download tutorials

    Good for you, brother! If they don't want us to have access to the information, don't put links on the pages and waste our time.
  8. Can't download tutorials

    I love Maxthon, but it's always bothered me that the fringe features, user interface, and language issues take a far back seat in development when many are issues that could be updated fairly easily.
  9. How to change skins on maxthon5

    Why do I need, and why don't I have permission to see some posts?
  10. Can't download tutorials

    When I click on the link for tutorials, it brings up the thread that contains a link for downloading the SDK. (Why is that link in a thread, anyway?)
  11. I saw another message asking that an automatic save feature be added to Magic Fill. But I don't have Magic Fill at all. I'm using a Galaxy Note 4. Is there something I must do to activate Magic Fill in the Android version? It's really a pain typing in passwords all the time on those virtual keyboards.
  12. I've never used Adhunter rules, and I don't know where to start. I looked at Adhunter's Manage Rules page, but I could see any obvious way to use these rules. Could someone please give me a short tutorial? Thanks
