I've noticed the Status Bar Tools not showing up since Mx5.1.6.3000 update.

I noticed that Upload/Download Speed only is shown so I fixed it and found out that none of the tools are checked but Upload/Download Speed is shown. Also, I never turned those off, it did on its own.

You have to select system info for them to show, no idea why you are seeing up/download speeds.

Those get turned off by default upon starting Maxthon and you have to tap each twice for it to show up again. Like they were initially on but were shown as turned off so you need to turn it off and on again to show up.

Which tools option can't be displayed?

Can't reproduce..If I restart browser, it will keep default status and don't need turn off and on again.

Reproduced the issue after a number of relaunches. Check this video.

Missing Tools.webm

Checked this video and tried to follow your steps, still can't reproduce. I guess this is not a common problem happened on everyone. Please try to rename the data folder and see.

1. Win+R-%appdata%

2. Find a folder name”Maxthon5”

3. Re-name that folder and restart the browser(e.g change to “1”)

Please don’t delete that folder

I think so too. It's your system problem. Try to use clean portable.

I'll try using the portable version. I've updated to version 5.2.0.1200 and the bug still persists.
I checked on my friend's laptop and it has the same bug. No additional extensions are installed except for Mining Go.

No. It's your OS problem. Make video on clean VM with M5 Portable. I did it and everything is OK. I don't understand what you want. By default all tools are swithched off. You can turn them on as you like.

if it's my OS' problem, the bug shouldn't occur on my friends laptop. That laptop was formatted a few months ago and has been clean of viruses as scanned by Avast and Malwarebytes.
The tools get turned off by default. Once you turn them on, it should still be on once you run the browser again but no! Switches are turned off, System Info only displayed, and You have to turn it on all over again but this time, you have to click twice on every tool.
It's bothersome to do that everytime you open the browser don't you think?

I don't see your problem - see screenshot:

I see we're using different themes.  There was a report some time ago that changing from a light to a dark theme caused the statusbar tools to be turned off.  I confirmed that behavior.   Then I turned them ON and they stayed set unless I changed themes light to dark again.  I've just re-checked with a dark to light to dark swith sequence and the tool remain.ON.

Win7 x64 & Mx 5.2.0.1200 of course.

I do not understand very well yet what the problem. If by default the Switches are not activated, or that once activated, they turn off when you go back to start maxthon.

Even so, I just tried the last beta, v.5.2.0.1200, portable version, on windows 10 x64, in any folder of the disk.

I've been careful (maxthon does not implement it), to rename %appdata% \ maxthon3, for versions of the v.4 series, because if not, import the data from these versions (which could be a problem)

Just started maxthon for the first time, this is what is activated by default, I do not think that each one is activated a different thing, I say.

We see the bar disabled by default, but the 3 switches, activated.

If you activate the bar, you see the 3 active switches below, which were previously activated.

If I close maxthon, and reopen it, they remain as is. If I deactivate them, I close maxthon and open them, and I see them inactive.

I do not know if this is what you mention or I have not understood something of what you are saying
