I can't see them either. I do have a new button/icon in the menu called "cmd.quick.PopularExtension". when clicked on it links to Maxthon extension centre. Is this a replacement or duplicate of the "Get More Extensions" command found on the gear widget in the bottom left hand corner or is it a mistake?

i found the quick access sync button - settings - privacy and content - auto sync

i wish they would add some notes rather than bullet points - crystal balls are in short supply

I also have it in my Spanish language. I see that in other languages this is translated as "hot extensions"

The button (checkbox) is present, but it does not work as it should. New tab page does not load offline.  https://pc-newtab.maxthon.com  still loading when the browser starts.

Hi zork,

If you install v5.2.6.200 on different devices and disable the QA sync function, change the QA separately, it won't sync.

Posts have been merged into here. No one should be posting in there anyway. It's an announcement forum so regular users don't have access to those forums.

That's pretty much it. Probably added as another means to get users to the extension site for those that don't have the sidebar open?! Unfortunately, the translation isn't available (and isn't in Crowdin) for en-GB, and probably many more.

Hi, BugSir0066, The main problem was not sync function. OK, sync on different devices can be disabled, but what about full off-line QA(new tab) page? That was the main aim! Not to load  https://pc-newtab.maxthon.com when browser starts.

Hi zork,

It's a pity that the off-line QA won't be supported. :(

Why? It's not hard to implement. And besides, it has been so for many years. All users need this mode!!!

Supported? , we are not talking about anything other than changing the call to an external URL by a local URL

Hi pantantrollo, zork,

May I ask why you need the off-line mode? To uncheck the sync button, it won't sync to Maxthon server.

Hi, BugSir006!

I already wrote about it in QA thread - http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/topic/23734-quick-access-page-loading-issues/

Hi, Tony! It does not matter -  you change the QA page or not.  Even in offline Max tries to connect to the "China" (the server is located in US - IP 151.139.241.18 and simple ping from USA is 30x faster compare to my location) server first (https://pc-newtab.maxthon.com ) We don't need this.  We need:

Make QA page completely autonomous from the network and synchronize only on the user's request.

Very, very long QA page load due to a request to an external server (https://pc-newtab.maxthon.com) every start and session!

I just tested the new option for syncing the QA page.  I turned OFF sync for QA and turned OFF the Internet connection.  I quit and relauched Mx5.2.6.200. The QA page loaded very quickly with a slight delay (IMO) from the local disk.  I only got a complaint that my account was inaccessible asking with options for Logon & Later.  But I was in my local account profile, not Guest mode.

So we are already half-way there.  We just need an option that disables sync & the server call whether connected to the nternet or not.

@BugSir006: Can we get the devs to complete the server disconnect opyion?

Is that the question is the other way round why should I connect to an external server when I start my browser?

Thank you all for your response. I have reported to the developers, they will improve the new tab page loading speed.

Hi -ody-,

The server won't be closed, and if you don't delete the local data, you still can access new tab page after closing server.

it may not be closed, it may just be down, which already happened several times.

improving loading speed is a good thing  but it's not what we're asking for.....

Hi SnowLeopard,

The Passkeeper data is enciphered. It cannot be imported to Guest account.

I completely agree. We ask to do the simplest thing, pointing out the real and objective reasons, and as a result the question is - what for? The conversation of the blind with the deaf.

Without being naive, does anyone believe that they do not listen to us? , another thing is that they do not want to do it, either for some commercial interest (see for example how many maxthon browsers make requests and post them or to know that other things :-(

Everyone likes to think their issue is the worst thing in the world and needs to be the #1 priority... it's just the way people are.

I don't think it's a case of not listening, i think they do... but i don't think they act on it, unless it aligns with their own plans.

It's been said by bug*'s that they collate the requests and info posted here and it is looked through. But that doesn't really mean anything as there's no feedback on any of that. So for what it's worth they could file it in the recycle bin.. it wouldn't make a difference.
