hi guys

when i use this version of maxthon:
http://www.maxthon.com/blog/maxthon-cloud-browser-v4-4-4-2000-with-adblock-plus-is-officially-released/

i cant use addblock+ it doesnt block a single add and i cant change the settings.

if i use the version of the main page, i can use addblock but there is a little window that when you remove it it makes maxthon crash.

Update to the latest as Oliver linked to.

Check your settings are correct. Settings > Address bar

For adblock, make sure the filters are being loaded correctly. Can you give us a page to test with. It may be that it's just not working on that particular page.

Image of the little window mentioned in the first post would be handy.

It shouldn't look like that if it's enabled. You should see the other options + the social media stuff.

Are you using a different skin? If so, change to the default and see if it still happens.

And if you're using a passport account, logout and check.

no i just use the default skin, no special stuff ect

Hi,

Have your problem been solved?

Maybe you can upgrade to the latest beta version 4.4.5.600. And if the problem persists, please give us a specific website where adblock doesn't work. And if there is a crash, please send us the crash report. You can go to %temp%--MaxthonCrashdata, if there is a generated file,zip it and send it to help@maxthon.com

I hope this could help you.

Could you give us specific link to test?

You can try also update your Maxthon to this latest version http://forum.maxthon.com/thread-15375-1-1.html.

I suggest you to perform clean installation.

Anyway do you have subscribed any adblock filters in Adblock options?

Did you try to add this list into your global rules http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/13033-adblock-plus-super-quick-list-to-block-ads-20150411/

Test with a portable version. Don't sign in with a passport if you use one.

on win8 now i have a wearder problem. after  closing down maxthon and install some windows updates, then reboot the pc, re-open maxthon:

ALL quick-acces apps are gone.

version i use: 4.4.3000

 

 

to be more precise, all quick-acces data gets removed during start-up

if i try to insert a older version (b-up) it gets removed after a 30 seconds after startup

 

 

for now the problem does not apeared again.

 

will keep a eye out for it when it happens again.

the problem still occurs in the latest version.

 

since i wont update to win10 due the need of WMC

i cannot test if that solves the problem

 

-------------------------------

edit:

after competely removing the programm, and the add(block) folders, the problem is solved for now.

 

please keep the topic open until further notice

 

------------------------------------

edit:

after a restart of maxthon the problem once is happening again??

could be some bug regarding the addblock settings.

Did you try this?

 

Test with a portable version. Don't sign in with a passport if you use one.

 

Given your results in post #13, it's a very unusual bug. It seems related to something on your system, as there is no way that all of those scenarios would cause the same issue.

 

What happens when you use a different skin? Try one of the ones available in the skins forum.

 

What's really weird, is that for that to happen the HTML (or maybe CSS) for that part of the skin needs to be adjusted. And the only way that can happen is by modifying the skin file.

im using the stock skin.

tested it also with non-mx account, same problem.

 

havent tried portable version

 

___________________

edit portable version works fine with mx account, wich is strange since it uses the same app-data files

 

could be due a minor bug in the program itself, since this is the only PC i have this problem on

Edit:

 

it has someting to do with admin-rights on the PC.

 

if i run it as admin it has addblock+ enabled.

for some reason addblock+ needs maxthon with admin-rights.

 

can this be solved?

Very weird problem. I'm thinking it might something related to your user account on Win7 rather than Maxthon. Or maybe your Win10 account has admin privileges?

my win10 account is just a regular one, 

 

it could have someting to do with the system privileges maxthon has on win10 or win7 are different.

 

the win10 is a full clean install on a brand new SSD.

i still used the adblock/data from win8.1 without problems

(235892 adds blocked in total, and still increasing)

 

the win7 is also a clean instal dated on: 8-9-2014

 

so a virus/malware could not be a problem

I am using AdBlock Plus as a normal user on my Win7 laptop.  I use the portable version usually from a desktop installation folder, but sometimes from a USB drive.  Either way ABP works fine.

 

However, I do NOT use the default adblocking list, EasyList.  I disable that and the unobtrusive ads whitelist and install Wilser's Super Quick List from here:

http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php/topic/15747-adblock-plus-super-quick-list-to-block-ads-05092015/?p=85505

Install it under Global Rules.

 

It has worked very well for me.

since i havent expierenced any trouble on win10 nor win7 with addblock+

the problem could be solved.

 

i am not using default blocking list.

i have global rules enabled.

i also copy my 260-270K addblock rules list to each pc i use it on.

(yes 270000 adds blocked)
