Bug: Maxthon cannot handle too many tabs

9 posts in this topic

scenario:

go to knowyourmeme.com website.

Choose a very popular meme there.

go to "View All Images" under "Recent Images".

open multiple tabs for each image that you see, like so: open about 5 images in background tabs, scroll down, open more, scroll down, etc...

do this till you have about 20-30 tabs.

wait for all of them to load (finish the animated icon).

Now, try to go to one of the opened tabs, preferably the newest/oldest one you've created. You'll see that it didn't load at all, and you might not even see it loading if you stay for a long time.

On some cases, it will refresh itself on its own, but on some it will just stay blank.

This doesn't occur only on this website, and it's not that my PC can't handle it.

It also occurs on others.

When it occurs, I notice that one process or two of Maxthon uses a lot of CPU, and doesn't stop. When I restart it, it goes back to normal - I visit each tab and it refreshes itself.

other websites that it occurs on are when I open multiple articles from Android-blogs:

Hi UFO106,

Sorry for this issue.

What version of Maxthon are you using please?

Here on my side i tested with this page http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcultures/anime/photos/trending?ref=popular-galleries . I opened more than 15 images in background tabs, just as you mentioned, and when i go to one of opened tabs, i see that it is loaded, not completely but i can see loading ...

Please check your ABP filter and disable unneeded filters. Too many filter can negatively affect page loading...

Thanks.

Check your crash folder and see if there is anything there from around the times when you were testing.

Looks suspiciously like silent crashes.

Hi UFO106,

Version 4.4.3.4000 of Maxthon, but it happened on previous versions too.

I didn't set anything in the ad-filtering rules for those websites. It's just the default ones.

The issue is that even though it shows it has finished (before switching to the tab), it didn't (even if I wait a long time). On some cases, even when I switch to the tab, it keeps being blank.

My PC should be able to handle such a task.

Attached the specs file of it, using CPU-Z app.

well it was about 5-10 tabs if I tried on the Android blogs, but it's hard to reproduce anyway.

where is the crash folder ? what is its path?

%temp%\MaxthonCrashData

It may depend on how the crash occurred and if MX can catch it to start the program that deals with that.

I think most people wouldn't be too happy if Maxthon was sending data without their knowledge. As it stands now, you either get notified about it or you do it yourself.

OK, I've got this issue on 9gag website (actually it happens there a lot, when opening multiple tabs), and I've found one folder that was created just very recently. Attached the folder.
