    This thread has been reposted here on the new Forum. The strings posted above were originally posted by me on another thread and then reposted by Magg. The latest UA Strings are here with the latest stable and beta browser versions included. I repost them again from another thread. Again I repeat they were originally created and written by Imanerd (so he can get the deserved credit) and just updated by me for the various Windows and NT versions.

    Okay I have been using 4.9.3.1000 for couple weeks now.. and it is horrible all around. I am using it on a laptop with Windows 8.1 installed. I was using whatever version there was since last December. I never bothered with any updates till now. Everything had been running smoothly and perfectly, Maxthon was my only browser I would use. Video playback for youtube or any streaming sites were flawless! I could have multiple tabs open, one with youtube playing, one with my email open and one for searching. Everything would be working harmoniously. Now, nothing works right! Videos whether on youtube or hulu or any movie streaming site.. plays horribly choppy! Everything freezes and skips audio. Nothing just plays normally since this update. Worst is if I have youtube open playing I have to play videos on 144p quality to play somewhat normally without chopping up bad. But If I have another tab open searching on google for example, every time I scroll bar on the search.. youtube freezes up in the background with each scroll I do. It makes doing anything a pain! Yet, every other browser you can think of Firefox, Opera, Chrome, IE even Nitro, everything plays perfect fine on all those! No issues what so ever like what I have on 4.9.3.1000. I can have 3 tabs open on all other browsers with al videos playing.. and no freezing what so ever! Its only this version. But the freezing thing is something that happens all around this browser. Starting the browser up with no open tabs from a previous session, just a new blank page with the tiles page. When clicking on a tile to open a site up, it takes the sites a while to load up. They don't load fast like they used to. And, once a tab does load up.. and I go to open a new tab, the new tab take forever to load up. It doesn't matter if the previous opened tab is just a google search page or email. or even a youtube video playing. it takes a while for the new tab page to load up. Things just freeze up at that point. The google search page, will not let me scroll through while the new tab is opening up in the background. It just freezes. Once the new tab loads up then everything works again. This is the biggest issue is the freezing up. This browser has become Multi Task Unfriendly! Now, I have tried already, installing a clean install of this version.. and the same results happen. I have even installed an older version from back in February of this year version 4.9.1.1000, and the same issues happen. Something deeper with maxthons core maybe has switched and going back to older version do not correct the issue. The layout of those older versions I've tried out besides 4.9.1.1000, they look like the older versions but do no respond the same. Videos still play the same choppy. I'm really frustrated because Maxthon was my only browser for the last year and half and now this version and any previous versions do no work well. I have to leave Maxthon browser for now because it's not useful to me anymore. Until it can get fixed and something changes I can switch back. But this current version and whatever has changed with MX since the last years version, it no longer works for me and my computer. I have to go with an alternative browser now which sucks! I loved Maxthon it was so fast and useful over other browsers. I've tried clean installs of other versions and this one again, and each time things are just choppy and slow. Maybe Mx5 will be better? We shall see.

    This is a basic troubleshooting guide for users to try and find the cause of issues. Following the guide should allow you to hopefully fix the issue, or at least figure out the source that is causing it so that when posting on the forum users have more information available to offer help. 1 /Are you running the latest version of Maxthon? Check the forum for any new releases and update/reinstall. Most issues will generally be resolved in new builds, or just by the reinstall process. Also ensure you have the latest version of Flash and any other plugins you might be using. If an update/reinstall doesn't work, try doing a clean install which removes all userdata during the uninstall process. Your userdata will be restored if you are using a Maxthon Passport. If you're using a local/guest account, make sure you have a backup of your Maxthon userdata folder (Open an explorer window and type the following into the address bar: %appdata%\Maxthon3\Users\guest). Keep a copy this folder, then copy it back once you have reinstalled. 2 /Do a forum search. Chances are someone has had the issue before you and a fix has been found. If you find a solution that works, reply in the thread so others know that it has worked for other users as well. 3 /Try changing to Retro Mode. A great feature of Maxthon that allows you to view a site using the Internet Explorer renderer in case the site has issues with Webkit/Blink. Main Menu > Switch Browser Core, or press the lightning button on the right of the address bar so it changes to a broken blue page. 4 /Connection error? (eg. unable to resolve domain name or can't connect error) try with another browser to see if it also has the same issue. Use a site likehttp://isup.me to check that the site is in fact online. Also check there isn't a problem with your DNS servers. You can try testing with Google (8.8.8.8) or OpenDNS (208.67.222.220) servers. And always provide a link to the site/page in question when posting so others can check to see if the problem is more widespread. 5 /Try disabling AdBlock Plus. Sometimes overly aggressive blocking can cause issues on a site. If this fixes the problem some of your rules may need to be revised. Post on the forum and someone should be able to offer a solution. 6 /Try deleting/clearing cookies There might be a corrupt or invalid cookie causing the problem. Deleting them will ensure new ones are created. Option 1: (Ctrl-Shift-Del) or from the Main Menu > Clear Browsing Data menu option, or toolbar. [Images here] Option 2: To delete cookies for only one site you can use the Developer Tools. [Images here] Option 3: You can also use the following 3rd party programs: -CookieSpy which can show Maxthon cookies, and DB Browser for SQLite which offer more advanced means of working with cookies. [More details here]NOTE: Only option 1 is recommended. Options 2 & 3 are only for advanced users. 7 /Try disabling all extensions. If disabling extensions fixes the problem then one of your extensions is causing the problem. Enable them one by one testing after each until you find the one causing the problem. 8 /Check the advanced options. Ensure you are using the default User Agent (should be unchecked), check with GPU acceleration on/off, and ensure that "Allow all sites to run plug-ins is enabled" if trying to troubleshoot a plugin related problem. These can be found by going to Main Menu > Settings > Advanced. If the above steps don't resolve the issue, follow the next steps which should help determine if the problem is with Maxthon, your account settings or system related and hopefully lead to the cause of the problem. 9 /Sign out of your Maxthon Passport. Check to see if the same problem still occurs. If not signing in fixes the problem, then it's more than likely a settings related issue. Disable all sync options from the menu then enable them one by one, testing for the problem until it occurs again. Once you know which settings are causing the issue make a post on the forum with the details for further assistance. 10 /Test with Maxthon Portable. Download & extract to any folder, run, check for the issue. DO NOT SIGN IN to your Maxthon Passport account. If this works then it's more than likely related to your install. Doing a clean install should fix the problem. If going through the above doesn't fix the problem, then start a thread on the forum to see if someone can help out. Offer as much information as you can, especially the following: - Any error messages; - What version of Maxthon and operating system you are running; - Any out of the ordinary programs (network related like firewalls, or downloaders like Orbit); - What you have tried to fix/find out what the issue was. Otherwise people will offer solutions that you may have already done; - And if applicable link some screenshots if it will make things easier for others to understand the problem. The best case scenario is you will find and fix the issue without having to wait hours or days for a response on the forum. At minimum you will narrow in on the issue allowing others to offer a quicker and more appropriate response for the problem. And you may learn something as well :-) Happy troubleshooting!

    Just upgraded to 4.9.4.2000 a couple of days ago. On Win 10. Each time i launch it i get a windows message asking if i want to allow this app to make changes to my computer. I upgrades because i had been getting unsupporeted browser messages on multiple websites. I am still getting some, not as many but Yahoo Mail has been consistent since before and now after that upgrade. You’re seeing Basic Mail because you’re using an unsupported Internet browser. Upgrade your browser for the full Yahoo experience. Don't show this again. I also note that when i X out the browser is takes about a minute before it closes.

    So everything was working fine with my Maxthon 4.9.3.1000. Then I stumbled upon --- "HEY! There's a new Maxthon 4.9.4.2000. I think I'll check it out." I tried it. It appeared to be slow ... inferior to 4.9.3.1000. AND I noticed Adblock Plus was not blocking ads. I checked the settings and it appeared to be very much ON. I just didn't see the usual blocking count down at the bottom of my screen. And I was seeing ads that normally don't show up. Consequently, the full rendering activity of pages take longer before circling indicator on the tabs eventually stops. I then uninstalled 4.9.4.2000 and reinstalled 4.9.3.1000. The slowness went away, but ... Adblock Plus is still not working. So, what's up? What do I need to set, tweak or smack around to get it to work? As before, the settings appear to be very much in the ON state. I have Windows XP SP3 Pro. I have the latest version of avast Free Anti-Virus.

    Just "upgraded" from 4.4.x.x to 4.9.3.1000 and noticed a very nasty behavior. My GPU (Radeon HD5850) starts running at full core and memory clock speeds just when I launch maxthon 4.9 (even when displaying only mx://last-visit/ page and nothing else). This makes the fans go loud and surely increases power consumption. When I use a 2-monitor setup the clocks remain at max speeds until I shut down Maxthon. When using just 1 monitor the clocks may go back to low speeds after like 10 seconds of inactivity but then any simple action like scrolling any page just a bit causes the clocks to go max again. (I have disabled smooth scrolling if that matters). This problem made me try mx5, it's somewhat better there - clocks go back to regular low speeds after just 1 second, those short spikes aren't as bad but still Maxthon 4.4 was way better. Is there any way to simply disable hardware acceleration in Mx4.9 or Mx5 ?

    I use two Samsung 24" monitors and I'm running Display Fusion Pro 7.3.4 which is current (I've been using 2 monitors and DisplayFusion since Jan 2011). I'm using Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate SP1. The issues I am describing below have never occured since October 2014 when I first started using Maxthon. Issue 1: I updated my Maxthon today to the current version and it automatically selected the Maxthon start page. However, when I closed it and reopened it later, all I see is a blank white screen; which I am guessing is some portion of the Maxthon start page. I can't see the sidebar either. If I hit F11 twice, then I am able to get the start page back to normal size on my screen. I can set the start page to my own URL or the New Tab window. However, if I reselect the Maxthon start page to start from when I start Maxthon, again I get the blank white screen. If I create a new Maxthon window and move it to the 2nd monitor, then the Maxthon window appears out of view directly above the top boundary of my 2nd monitor. I can use "Restore" from the Windows 7 taskbar , and it will appear in the center of my 2nd monitor. If I resize the 2nd Maxthon window (on my 2nd screen), and attempt to maximize it, it jumps to the top and outside of my 2nd monitor's viewable area, and I have to use "Restore" or Move to make it visible again. The previous versions of Maxthon didn't do this and were working perfectly well with Display Fusion Pro all the way back to version 5.1 of Display Fusion (installed on Nov 27 2013). Issue 2: If I create a New Tab, all the URL blocks I used to have are missing. What is in their place now are 4 small blocks that are cycling in clockwise order.

    Last session tabs open in reverse order. Hence I open last session twice each time I open the browser.

    MX 5 removed all my favorites from the favorites bar and wont let me put them back. It even removed them from Infobox. I hope they get to a final release soon. Until then I'm staying with 4.9.3.1000. Also the Android Mobile version looks more likethe Opera Browser. As it stands now MX 5 looks like crap.

    Some issues I continue findind on 4.9 track: - magic fill only fills some of the entries, but not all - Snap can't be associated to CTRL-F1 (or just CTRL-F1 shortcut not working) - Find in page Freezes almost every time I try to use (and need to kill maxthon from task manager) On the other hand, PLEASE! go back to some key features: - split screen - developer tools on both retro and ultra mode Also I miss more frequent updates, where some minor bugs were corrected very fast. Is Maxthon still a live project? I see more focus on "search de maxthon pet name", or "greetins for all these years ", than in paid atention to users requests.......

    Hello, Maxthon usage gets higher and higher with every upgrade. Why is it so? Attached RAM usage of the browser with only one opened tab: mx://last-visit/ and nothing more opened. Regards, Alex.
