Just push one block exactly  above the other and you will have a New Folder. Go into the Folder; Click on the heading and edit it.

Where has the Last Session page gone?! Is there something like mx://last-session/ again? Really need to get back to what I was working on last night!

There we have to use probably for the first time "mx://history/".

MX5 QA works as website. But you changed the user folder address from Maxthon3 to Maxthon5. So MX5 QA does not work in old versions and other browsers. Why? Fix it, make extension for MX4 and other browser. And maybe it will be popular. For example, you can use cache or cookies like other websites.

How do you start the new QA? If it's a web page, can someone list the  URL please?

I find that once a tile has been added to a New Folder, it can no longer be edited.

And bobad1, if you are logged in, just drag a tile over another that you wish to group together and a new folder will be created, as demonstrated in the first post. Don't know about the URL.

of course i read that - jeeezzzz - i will rephrase the question - why can you not make this compatible with earlier builds - anything after 1200 is a show stopper for me as they will not work with a sidebar mod i have

Probably because Maxthon progress can't be stopped. I myself have long favoured the 4.4.8.1000, then the 4.4.9.600 beta was my favorite and now five-1900. If you would like to upgrade always the old versions, as it has since time for the new? All we hungry now to FIVE RELEASE. And export favorites and what do I know.

Thanks!!!  I was trying to do just that, but didn't notice the speed dial icons must be PERFECTLY aligned. :)

 

Your editing problem is an annoyance to me also. Hope it's fixed soon!

all fine but :

is there anyway to change the color of the background inside the tiles (minimzed and maximized) ? and to remove the empty tiles ?

and it would be fine if I could  choose my own background..

also it should be easier to add a site to QA : at the moment you have to copy the url from address bar and paste it into QA. I would like to be able to add a site the same way it was possible in Mx4

I had similar issue, please follow the steps.

- Open the QA.
- Click the "Developer Tools" icon from the topbar.
- Switch to the "Console" tab.
- Write "location.reload()" without the quotes and press enter key.

I'd like to be able to close Quick Access with Ctrl+W or a mouse gesture just like a regular webpage.

You could always do it in MX4 and earlier versions. Very annoying that it doesn't work this way anymore.

Please add ability to scroll QA when moving a tile. As it is now you have to move and drop a number of times to move a tile from the bottom to the top not to mention also re-positioning each tile that it replaces which makes setting up your tiles very, very tedious.

try to refresh the page, or clear your cache.

If neither works, then check if you have set your setup page as QA page, change it and restart the browser.

Hi PHYR, thanks for the feedback. Our product manager is aware of this issue, and we'll upgrade it later. :1f60a:

thank you rikc.lane for telling.

Currently, you can drag it out for editing. I'll forward this to our product team, and push them to make it possible to edit in a folder.

They will add the "edit a tile when it's in a folder" function in the next QA version. So please stay tuned. :wink:

That's because QA is not a physical tab anymore.

Yes. And outrageously, incredibly annoying it is, too.

It's much more convenient.  It doesn't create another process, which is what a lot of people don't like.

The exact opposite for me and, it seems, nTrophy. Very annoying, counter-intuitive, and breaks interaction paradigms established elsewhere within the browser. It may not be a tab but it's designed to appear like one, so it should act like one. Including being able to be 'closed'.

Why counter-intuitive?  When you open QA and click on one of your links, it closes automatically and opens a tab for the link you clicked on.  What other reason would you open QA for if not to click on a link?

Since it's just there rather than being a new tab you have to create, one might end up on it whilst cycling through tabs (Ctrl+Arrow or Ctrl+Tab). One might also active it absent mindedly, or go to it then realise you don't actually want/need a different tab, or indeed don't wish to visit a different page at all.

Counter intuitive because it looks like a tab but doesn't behave like one. Simple, really.

AHH ok, now I get it.  Since I don't work like that, I would never have encountered that "problem?".  When I open QA it's a conscious effort to do something with it other than just look at it.  Also, on a small screen, I can see how it would be easy to hit the QA icon rather than the Close X on a tab.

I'm sat at Maxthon for 12-14 hours a day or more. It happens quite a lot!

Also dying for new tabs/quick access/whatever to open to the right of my currently active tab rather than at the end, too. If I could get Chrome to behave like M2, M3 and M4 like that, I would have (reluctantly) made the switch. It's so frustrating and time-consuming.
