This makes "Double-click to close tab" a bit of a lottery, half of the time it acts like "Maximise\Restore"

Yeah, depending on how pedantic you are when you move your mouse. It requires much more precision now as you can't just move the mouse to the top of the screen. 

IMO anything on the edge or corner of the screen (eg. start button, taskbar icons, show desktop button, close button or tabs on maximised programs), you should never be trying to hit the item dead centre. It's a waste of effort as the edge of the screen serves as a block to stop you from overshooting. So long as you move the mouse enough in the right direction (eg. bottom left) you'll always get the start button.

I'm hoping it was a mistake rather than a conscious decision. It's a stupid design and I honestly have no idea why it was done, as it serves no purpose aesthetically or functionally.

And yet again, why does Maxthon has to break something for every damn release.

It's a hassle to "double click - close tab", and even extra hassle to "single click - switch tab" now.

I am speechless already.

Use middle click on mouse to close tabs.

Will have to remember that. Really nice as it doesn't switch tabs on the first click.

But it still doesn't fix the issue for switching tabs.

Hi, 

I'm using 5.2.3.3000 version and almost every time (not every) when I double click on tab to close it, Maxthon do a restore like I double click nexto to tab instead on tab... 

After that I must maximise Maxthon...

This only happens to me with this version...

Please confirm that you did not click x. It will minimize the browser window if you click "x" for twice.

Works normal here if you just double click other area on the tab

Yeah... I did not click on X...

I'm using Maxthon as my default browser since it was MyIE so this thing going on nerve for me... :)

I've tested more and realise that it happens only if I double click in the top of tab... Like the tab is not to the top... Like there is one or two pixels which does not belong to tab so when I move mouse fast to the top to close it, it do a restore... :(

That wasn't problem with previouse version...

Please do not click here:( If you click the area which marked yellow means you want to minimize/maximize the browser

In most cases, when you maximize browser, it will displayed as follow, there will shown no space on new tab.

Yes, exactly. It is very frustrating. This is somehow related to abnormal border behavior fix, I guess.

Now Maxthon has a tiny 1 px border around it's window while maximized. When I try to switch tabs with my mouse, I have to position the pointer precisely to not hit the top of the screen or nothing will happen on click. This is is ridiculous.

Also, if I double click on the top of the screen above the tab, if restores window. This is incredibly annoying. Have to downgrade to prev. beta version now.

 

This 1 px border is CLEARLY A CRITICAL BUG. Makes Maxthon unusable.

 

GOD this makes me produce a bad word every single time I try to switch tabs!

It is maximized... It happens when it is maximized... That is why it's so annoying...

There is already a thread on this: 

Very annoying that i have to rollback Maxthon version. It breaks our usual habit of being able to quickly mouse cursor over to the top and double click to close the tab.

My opinion: developers need to simply increase in this place the area under the grip for stretching the window. After all, at the top of the window this area is the smallest and is literally a couple of pixels.

And the area to capture and stretch the window as in the screenshot above has not been increased. At the top of the browser window, it's just scanty compared to the bottom and side parts ...

The latest official release is 5.2.3.3000. But I'm sorry that I don't know how to stop auto updating as I never have to deal with it but also not sure why that is.

Because I can't stand the problems in 5.2.3.300. That's why i require a roll back.

Did you totally misunderstand what I wrote? There is no version 5.2.3.300, it's 3000. And I didn't ask why you wanted to roll back, I just commented that I never experience auto updating, so I can't help with trying to figure out how to stop it from happening. Not sure what you thought I meant, but I also don't have any problems with that version so I also don't have a clue what the problems are that you "can't stand". And I am now using 5.2.4.100 and experience no problems with it.
