I get the Open in Desktop & Download Zip options. Clicking on the the zip option the file downloads.

Check your ABP settings/ turn off to test. any random extensions etc

I tried using 5.0.3.400 with all extentions off and get the same problem. When i click the "clone or download" button, the dialog box that gives me to option to open in desktop or download ZIP does not work. I get the same issue with maxthon nitro  1.0.1.3000 .

It works fine on chrome and edge.

 

Thanks

Have you changed your useragent for some reason?

Are you running that site in Retro mode for some reason?

Can you show if there are any errors in the developer console. F12 > console tab

No errors appear in the console tab. I also found that i would not be able to load files through the site either.  I also am unable to fork a repository but when i press the fork button "#fork-destination-box" is added to the url.MaxthonSnap20170430223938.png

Can you extract a copy of Maxthon portable and test on that.

i downloaded maxthon portable from the site and discovered something new that may put some light into this issue.

I first just used the guest mode and when using the guest mode it works!

however when i logged into my account, it stopped working.

The I tried it on the non portable version and got the same result. Github seems to work fine on guest mode but not when i am logged in.

I wouldn't go that far.

Are you using the default Useragent? Or have you changed to something else? Are you using retro mode?

when i unchecked to box. Githubs seems to work again. That's interesting.

Yes it is, because unless you've changed something when you enabled the custom mode, they're supposed to be exactly the same UA.

Does this look like the right useragent string?

It does. Odd that it may have been causing issues. I tried changing to that as well and still no issues. Possibly something else was also changed?

Although it's fixed for now... so until it happens again I guess there's not too much to worry about.

This is the UA recognized by whatsmyuseragent.org without using any customized UA other than my changing chrome/47 to chrome/57. His shows winNT6.1 too
