Large banner ad for Maxthon on New Tab page

6 posts in this topic

After clearing my cookies yesterday, I have a huge intrusive banner ad for Maxthon and Maxnote on my New Tab page that reappears every time I close and open my browser. How do I get rid of this? I don't need to be sold on Maxthon since I already use it :) And I generally don't want banner ads in Maxthon, especially not on the New Tab page where it moves important thumbnails off-screen.

PS: How can I change my forum name? I was assigned a number when I created this account and haven't found a way to change this.

I think I found the problem. When I deleted my cookies, I checked all boxes and also enabled "Auto clear on exit", which wasn't enabled before. Upon disabling this checkbox, the ad banner stays gone across browser sessions. I enabled it again and played around with different settings, and the culprit turned out to be the checkbox "Delete other website-related data". When I uncheck this, the problem is gone. But I'd still like to change my forum name if possible :)

You should be able to do that in your profile settings.

If not, send a PM with the name you want and i'll fix it up.
