And some other sites

Normal font looks like nordic runes :)

I need to say I have clear type turned off. On IE and Firefox it looks ok.

 

 

With that version  5.2.5.600 BETA portable. this is what I see... (SO = Windows 7 64bits)

I will try to clean cache and reinstall Maxthon as it also works on other Windows 10 x64 machines I own, only on one displays such strange behavior.

Now when I think of it, today on that PC I installed latest Windows 10 Insider Preview so maybe this new version of Windows is a culprit but only in Maxthon.

I have the latest Insider build, 15282.1000 and this is what I see in Maxthon 5.2.5.600 but in Edge it looks perfect.

Very strange situation.

Not only MX 5.2.5.600 shows many sites with terrible fonts.

I was check same sites in Yandex.Browser (Chrome fork), Vivaldi 2 and Edge. Only Edge shows correct fonts. MX, Y.B, Vivaldi can't render fonts

IT might be issue with 1809. Maybe someone with same version could test also...

Nope.

Windows 10 (v1809 / 17763.1 / x64)

MX 5.2.5.600

UA: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/62.0.2526.73 Safari/537.36

Looks the same as it is in Edge.

Aaaaaaand the wiiiinnnerrrr iiiiis.......

Settings - Advanced - Browsing - Use DirectWrite

Not sure where problem resides - in MX core or in Windows but turning this option OFF leads to correct font rendering

Yes, that's right, turning off DirectWrite fixed the issue. I suppose it is some incompatibility between new 1809 and Maxthon.

It could be that the video drivers are also involved together with maxthon and that version of windows

I disabled DirectWrite and with default Maxthon User string the problem was solved for me.

mx5.2.5.1000 - font rendering is still a problem on some sites with Directwrite enabled but i believe this is a Windows 10 [1809] problem that Maxthon and other programs are seeing - i get the same problem on an email client with some received emails

whether Microsoft see it that way is another question

Thats the Cumlative update released on Tuesday. Thanks it's difficult to keep up with the 1809 release at the moment. That's why I'm staying on 1803 .

Same problem was at spring with Chrome and temporary solution was to disable hardware acceleration via advanced chrome settings.

Some time after problem was resolved. So it looks like MX have this issue only due to old chrome core and after MX developers update core this problem will gone.
