  1. Thank you for your patience. I test with my computer and could duplicate here for certain pictures(it doesn't happen for all but do appear), too. It's really anonying... Please stay touched. I have asked the devs to check, and after studying it has been confirmed a bug of this version. I will update the development of fixing shortly. Really really sorry for the inconvenience to you.

  2. Despite the popularity of its Clean Master Android App, it was reported in 2014 that ads promoting Clean Master manipulate Android users with deceptive tactics when browsing websites within the app's advertising framework. In April 2014, Ferenc László Nagy from Sophos Labs captured some pop-up ads that led to Clean Master, warning the device had been infected with a virus.[25] In July 2014, Cheetah Mobile encouraged users to uninstall Google Chrome and replace it with Cheetah Mobile's own browser during Clean Master's "clean-up" and "optimization" process. This rogue practice allowed Cheetah Mobile to gain unfair position in the marketplace and led to a Google crackdown

  5. Dear BugMiss006 - sorry for not knowing your name... I wish to thank you for your patience and long support. The last action taken, solved the problem of crashing while printing a page/picture as a picture. With our mutual effort, the importance of the flash.ocx is revealed. This file name is changed when updating and hold the version date, therefor the link you sent to solved this problem, is very easy to implement. I will watch to Maxthon behavior in the next days and let you know if the other problems which I reported, are also solved All the best, and again thank you for your kindness Shlomo

  6. I don't think BugMissoo6 understood your question. Multiple instances of Maxthon in task manager is perfectly normal as it is designed to keep the whole browser from crashing when just one item or page crashes. Version number doesn't matter as this has been this way since MX3, I believe. This is not a problem at all.

  7. Yes, most modern browsers use multiple processes especially those using chromium base, I'd be surprised if palemoon doesn't also. FF I don't know. It's nothing to worry about, it's by design.

  8. Hi ioosis, Today we have released the new version of MX4, v4.9.4.1100beta, and Facebook problem was fixed in this version. You can download it from this link: http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/release-notes/ Besides, since we suppose that the Fav. manager problem is also related with FB issue, it will be helpful if you could try your Fav. manager in this new version, too. We hope this Fav. manager issue could also be fixed together. Awaiting your feedback.

  11. no, not at all... Maxthon will not prompt you to open any webpage if you set it as your default browser. do you know what UAC is ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Account_Control and file association ? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/change-file-open-program#1TC=windows-7 as an example, if you don't set any browser to default, windows will ask you which application you want to open html files, and each time you will try to open an html file windows will prompt you again. Setting it as default will tell windows : always open those files with maxthon, don't ask me again.

  12. Disable address bar Auto-Suggestions Maxthon doesn't offer an option to disable address bar auto-suggestions. To manually disable this feature follow the instructions below. Open Notepad with administrator privileges, add the following line to your HOSTS file and save. 127.0.0.1 api.bing.com The HOSTS file can be found %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc See note #1 Navigate to the \public\SmartUrl folder in your Maxthon install folder (or in appdata\roaming\Maxthon3 for installer version) Rename (or delete) the original update.db file (see image below). Create a new empty text file named update.db and mark it read-only. See note #2 Restart Maxthon and the auto-suggestions won't show up. Before auto-suggest fix After auto-suggest fix note 1: This change won't affect anything else except any other programs that use that address for the same suggestions. All it does is tell the browser the IP address for that URL is the localhost address instead of the correct one, so nothing leaves your computer. note 2: The only caveat is that it seems when typing in the address bar the matched URLs are a little slower than normal. Not 100% on that, but that's what it feels like. And of course i'm unaware of anything else it might break.

  18. Hi there firstly Thanks mate as I am seeing it now, it has begun doing what its supposed to do. I just cant put a finger here at all, it was like that (topic starter) & for more than a few times but as I am testing it now, its back to the windows default behaviour(which is what I want). feel a bit embarrassed here , but alls well that ends well I guess....& will definitely jump onto it if this happens again. This time I will make a video ..lest it happens snip Let me close this one here . Thanks and cheers

  19. To be honest, sometimes for some question, even Maxthon staffs couldn't tell the reason and solve it at once (Though I really hope to achieve that but I have to tell the truth), but all your feedback and information will be forwarded to the developing team for their consideration and study. Now I could only say it's really odd as far as I know, but we will find out the cause with devs and avoid any potential bugs in future.

  20. Whoa! Wait a minute. What the ..... ? Heyyy! YAY! Success! Adblock Plus is back working again! I guess it was a case of like Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "I'll be back." Seriously, it's really back. Now how did I get it back working again, y'all might ask? Well, it really wasn't anything that I knowingly, strategically, techie-like and logically tried. It was more like happenstance, I guess. The way I see it, it was one of 2 things that finally heimlich maneuvered the furball from Adblock Plus' throat. It was either me bringing up my Blog ... or me initiating a download of the SAS Definitions from MajorGeeks. I had done both around that time. I had checked out my Blog. Then I proceeded to nonchalantly download the SAS Definitions. Upon initiating the SAS Definitions download from MajorGeeks, I suddenly noticed the familiar message (which I have attached) informing me about how they're bummed that I was blocking their ads. At that instant, I went, "Whoa! Wait a minute. How can that be? How can I be getting that message when Adblock Plus isn't working?" But, then I looked down at the bottom at the little AdBlock Plus Stop Sign icon and noticed the Blocked Ads Count was back working. I then tried other websites and there too, Adblock Plus was working, blocking tons of ads and the speed of loading pages was now back to its normal faster speed. So I don't know. Seemingly, it was either something in BlogSpot or MajorGeeks that jumped started Adblock Plus. I'll know what to try next time. Not that it's guaranteed that that wil work next time.

  22. Make sure "standard rendering" is enabled in settings when testing in Retro mode. BUT it works fine here in Ultra: User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Maxthon/4.9.4.1100 Chrome/39.0.2146.0 Safari/537.36 OS:Win10/14393.351 (although I doubt that's the the cause)

  24. How many favourites do you have and how big is the Favorite.dat file? If it's rather large, then that's possibly why you're running into issues with favourites. You can probably delete most (if not all) of the data in the backup folder. I always keep the latest 5 or 10 copies though. For reference i have 568 favourites and the file is 938kb. No issues on my end. You can get the total by using the update site icons feature and checking the progress meter number down the bottom. For flash to be working in Retro you need to also have the IE version of flash installed. Easiest way is to run Internet Explorer and install flash using that, as it will detect and install the right version. It should then work in Retro. Although you shouldn't have to be using Retro for youtube. Goto https://www.java.com/en/download/installed8.jsp and see if it can detect if Java is running/installed.

  27. Does Fav. problem happen when you don't have Facebook page on? have you ever try that? Besides, since crash happen again, could you help sending the crash report to us for analysis? The way to get MaxthonCrashData is as above. Yes I think so, too. It's really an important bug which need to be fixed urgently because FB is such a popular platform nowadays. Really thank you for your support and patience. It's really helpful for us.

  28. Is what you mean same with following thread? He has an video attached. http://forum.maxthon.com/index.php?/bug-tracker/general-support/auto-reload-facebook-picture-r236/ It's really sad story, but anyway we need to solve it. Let me check another detail with you, did all these problems (crashing when close a tab, freeze on Fav. manager) happen only when you have one or more Facebook page on? If so, we may suppose that MX4 encounter problem when Facebook was open, and given the problem has happened, what other operation you do after that will meet difficulties. Besides, what's your operation for Fav. manager? only click open, and it will be slow or freeze? or only when you edit it, it encounter problems?

  29. over 15000...seems that you are really an old Maxer and have great trust on us I'll let the devs know about this. Maybe they should pay more attention to the optimization again. helpful information, I shall transfer to them together I'm a bit of confused about this. What do you mean by this? You couldn't open thread in this forum? is it only on this forum or for all other sites?

  30. Ok, anyway, it's a good news that the new version has stopped part of problems. Regarding to the favourite manager, could you tell how many bookmarks you save in your favourite managers? your computer information? whether virtual memory or any system disk has been full? Is there any problem like freezing when you use other features of Maxthon? any problem when you use other browsers? Hope it's not a burden for you, but since we couldn't duplicate this problem when we do test(actually we have optimized this feature and before we lauched it previously, our test once tried more than 5k bookmarks and move, but there's no problem at all), this is the only way to identify the cause.

  31. I found a solution. By renaming that folder of favotires, Maxthon could not find it. So, it defaulted to the parent directory of favorites. The, I could right-click in a blank area of the favorites bar, and then select the directory I want for the favorites bar. -joe

  33. Delete the siteIcon.dat and siteIcon-randomnumber.dat files. Run the "update site icons" option in the favourites menu. It should restore all your icons in the favlist and elsewhere. It's a backup of the original file before it got corrupted. The data is there, but because it's corrupted new data won't get added properly and MX gives the error. Fix is as noted above.

  37. Sorry, I did not answer/ explain more precisely to you. So once again : Maxthon for Windows doesn't support Chrome extensions. Your link leads to extensions for Maxthon for Mac. ( http://www.maxthon.com/mac/ext/ ) Mx for Macintosh has of course the ability to install some .crx/ Chrome extension. Sorry for your confusion. Here you'll find more extensions for MX for Windows http://extension.maxthon.com/

  38. There is no Ghostery extension for Maxthon. And you can't install Chrome addons into Mx - Maxthon doesn't support them.

  39. Hello friends and especially for those who were waiting to see the masterpiece of Maxthon-5.... coming. Well, yesterday "my wishes came true"..... and what a frustration now. If you got eyes in your head, you wont believe it's true... Anyhow, I'm holding myself not to say anymore.

  40. See the below image. Bing was my default search engine (marked in red), so when using MMS, Bing results are shown by default. If I want to check Google/Yahoo/Amazon (marked in green) using the same search term I can just click one of those and it does a search using them. Basically what it does is saves you from going to a search site and entering the term each time... instead just click a button.

  43. This also happened to me on Chase.com when trying to login, and also when myloops.net directed me to Paypal when I was trying to buy something from myloops.net. I kept clicking Log In on the Paypal popup and it didn't work. I had to use IE instead for both sites. Used to work fine in previous maxthon version before 4.9.3.1000. I am running Windows 7 Ultime SP1 64-bit

  44. NOTE: The information below is for Maxthon 4.9.x & 5.x releases. For Maxthon 4.4.x and earlier releases see this post. Update to the most recent version of Flash from here: http://get.adobe.com/flash The page will show that it has detected Chrome. If not, check that the default user agent is in use. Click "Do you have a different operating system or browser?" Select your Operating System from the dropdown menu. Select "FP for Opera and Chromium - PPAPI" to install the correct version for Maxthon to use. Press the download button on the right and let the installer run. Close Maxthon. Open an Explorer window (Win+E) and go to the folder you installed Maxthon to, then navigate to the folder: For MX5: \Core\plugins For MX4.9: \Core\Blink\plugins NOTE: Default install folders are:For 32bit OS - C:\Program Files\MaxthonFor 64bit OS - C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxthon In this folder there should be a file called pepflashplayer.dll. Rename (eg. append .org to the filename) or delete this file only. Renaming is the recommended option. Copy pepflashplayer32_XX_X_X_XXX.dll from the windows folder to the Maxthon \Core\Blink\plugins folder, and rename it to pepflashplayer.dll. The file is found in the following locations:For 64bit OS - C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\FlashFor 32bit OS - C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash Restart Maxthon & goto http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ The page should show the current version installed and the most recent version available, both of which should match. Maxthon is now using the current version of Flash. If everything was done correctly you should have something similar to the following image, and a plugins folder as below.

  47. Ok I decided to add my bugs to this topic. So... In this beta open links in new tab via right click doesn't work well if we compare it to previous Mx version. There is "Save image" options instead "Open link in new tab". It happens on a lot of websites. Check screenshots for comparision/ more details, please. Two example links : http://www.deviantart.com/browse/all/customization/skins/windows/win10/ http://www.gry-online.pl/ IMHO this change is very inconvenient.
