resolved Reddit doesn't work on Maxthon 5

12 posts in this topic

For about two weeks, every reddit page shows this error:

http://prntscr.com/l2i1dy

 

I haven't seen people reporting it, so it might only be my issue. What could the cause be?

Try to download the portable version and see what happens to you with a clean installation

Otherwise, see if the firewall or other softare is causing the error (hosts, adblock etc ..)

The portable version suffers from the same issue. In terms of external causes, I'm not sure what to try. It's not the adblock, at least.

Try changing your encoding to Unicode UTF 8.

I agree, I have 5.2.5.600 with UTF-8 encoding, and see no errors on the Redit page. OS = Win 7 x64)

I did, and the problem persists.

I didn't mention this, but reddit works on other browsers.

There's a couple of posts on reddit about it, so it does happen, but doesn't seem to be a widespread thing. Apparently it was "fixed".

Interestingly the others have had issues with Chrome and Firefox.

Clear cookies/website data and refresh. If still nothing, post on reddit, as based on what i've read it seems it's a problem on their end.
