  3. You know what I think....I think Maxthon 6 should have Adblockplus,a sidebar and the old classic bins from Maxthon 5.

  4. Hello! 1. Obviously(!), auto/manual update check didn't work 2. In settings, appearance, show status bar, unticking just CPU usage, also removes network speeds, ram usage + IP addresses 3. I agree with others, Mx6 MUST have a different icon to Mx5 as MANY people still have both installed due to lacking features in Mx6 4. Download manager still a popup, not a window, so can't alt+tab to it 5. Bookmarks still don't scroll... the fact many people report & request this with EVERY release, maybe this should be a priority!? 6. Chromium version far too old... new versions are mostly about security fixes, which Mx6 doesn't have, so can NEVER be considered a safe browser! 7. Is DNS over HTTPS going to be implemented? Opera + Edge already have it & Google + Mozilla say they're gonna have it too 8. Quick launch company thumbnails still not present (available from the websites themselves (e.g. amazon.co.uk, disneyplus.com, bbc.co.uk, airbnb.co.uk)) We're still not able to install Mx6 onto customer's computer's as the default browser, it's still not as good as Mx5, which we installed on 1000's of computers!

  12. If you unluckily lose bookmarks, you can try to restore the bookmarks by using the backup file. 1. Open Maxthon 6 browser. 2. Open the installation path, for example, D:\Users\lenovo\AppData\Local\Maxthon\ 3. Open the folder "User Data" under the folder "Maxthon" 3. Find the account folder you'd like to restore data, such as "Default" 4. Under the folder "Default," you can find and open the folder "Backups" > "BookMarks" 5. Choose a backup file, copy it, then paste it to your account folder, such as "Default" 7. Rename the backup file as "Bookmarks," no file suffix required; delete the previous file "Bookmarks." 8. Restart the browser.

  13. Me Too, I really Hope That MX6 Can be Like MX5 with Chrome's Functions. I still Waiting for Side bar, Status bar, Mx5's Translation Box, Mx5's Mute tab. And Auto Refresh too .. Didn't Fixed yet ..
    3 points
  14. Thanks for optimized "save as image" function 🙂 👍 But dont understand what changes where made in "Mute" . The same useless "Mute site" with the right click menu. All you need to do is make CLICK (not right click) on microphone icon on tab and that mutes TAB (not site). Show me one situation where you need "mute site". "Tab mute" is waaay better. And if you add status bar (with possibility to add there zoom +/- and diff. tools) - MX6 will be #2 browser in the world (after mx5) To make it #1, all you need make maxnote old way. ( but "mute tab", "global mute" on status bar and "zoom" on status bar are more important for me personally)

  15. That's the problem with MX6. It's been in development for over a year and we still haven't got basic features from MX4 and 5. For me it's still for testing only.

  16. Hi rambo, I tried to test this issue but haven't reproduced. Could you provide me a video of it? Did you use the latest version 6.1.2.1305? It will be added to MX6 as soon as possible. ?

  17. I am still missing the status bar with IP and CPU and network usage indicators. Also, while the new download manager does offer the "Open" option, it still saves the file in the selected location instead of a temporary folder, which is undesired; I want files that I open directly (like for example installers or archives) to be saved to a temp folder that gets cleaned, not to clog up space on my storage drives.

  18. Please tell me, will we be able to see the sidebar in the future or not .. Even if not, I am not waiting and contemplating for nothing .. And Thank You.

  19. 1. I recommend you to fully uninstall mx6 by uninstaller like IoBit uninstaller which will completely erase all leftovers 2. reboot windows 3. check windows default browser to see if there is still sign of Maxthon If not 4. clean install Mx6 to the default location

  20. I need status bar with zoom +- buttons on it and global mute, also where is mute on individual tabs?I believe you also missing "add to favorites" when you click star

  21. Hello, Please can you add again the favorites function "Add to this folder" which was in Maxton 5, when you open a favorites folder to put the current tab, because it was really very convenient? and now it's really boring !!! Thank you.

  22. What I really don't lke about MX6 is size of tabs. Look at this and compare MX5, Vivaldi, MX6 and FireFox (Opera GX have same tab size as MX5). Maxthon 6 have biggest tab of all. also bookmarks are way bigger then in MX5, because it doesn't cut text from them how it does MX5. At this moment, without functions that MX5 have by default: Snap, Video Pop-up and download, External Tools (love it, very useful) and External Download Manager MX looks and feels like another Chromium clone. Also I don't like how in MX6 "Recently visited sites" was made. Its easier for me to click on little arrow then do RMB click. At least Passkeeper on PC works now...

  23. I've been using Maxthon since MyIE, and I've always liked the fact that it was DIFFERENT - mostly that it wasn't IE or FF or Chrome. Today I look at version 6 and see that it is more and more like Chrome and I don't mean the engine but the interface - that awful, disgusting, simple, ugly chrome interface! Why? Where is all the good from MX4 and MX5 how this browser differed from others? Do the downloaded files really have to be written to the disk and appear as tiles at the bottom just like in Chrome? The download manager in MX5 had no flaws! It had an OPEN button that made running programs straight after downloading it. Now I have problems to explain to people over the phone (IT support) where to look for the downloaded files. For what? This is the wrong way. Let's not spoil good solutions! The already favorite tiles on the start page have been broken between MX4 and MX5 (Why do the tiles change position after removing one?) let's not break any more. Please - don't forget that for a developer, MX6 is engine and code, but for a user - like us - it's mostly an INTERFACE. We need good, smart solutions OTHER than in Chrome, because if they are the same, why do we need MX? I hope, I will have reasons to stay with MX. After so many years is like family for me.

  26. Hello! Version 6.1.2.2800 (64-bit) 0910 (installed) 1. Started up ok after install (unlike previous 4 versions!), but the quick launch needed to be refreshed else only showed the defaults 2. In status bar, the local IP showed the internet address, but not the network address (just a thin, empty rectangle)... clicked & reselected the same & was then ok 3. When opening the download manager, it's still a popup, not a window, so if not pinned & switch to another window, one can't alt+tab back to it 4. Download manager window still not resizable 5. When downloading, the 'New Download Task' dialogue is displayed, but still not the download manager window, showing previous downloads 6. Download manager still not showing path, under filename, for current/previous records 7. Bookmarks still not scrolling when there's more than will fit on screen

  31. I have the problem of not opening Gmail Mail in Maxthon 5. It's so simple, I don't understand why I didn't think of it. When I changed the Mx5 Ultra mode to Retro mode, the gmail box was also opened. Anyone who has had this problem give it a try. Good work to you all.

  32. Auto update has NEVER worked for beta releases, and never will. The only way to update MX6 betas is to come to the forum, see if there is a new version available, then download it and install it.

  34. Hi Everyone, We always believe Maxthon is made by all users, not just developers and we always believe we shall send thanks to the people who contribute to the community. Now, we have introduced a new forum feature to make a step forward in this direction. If you look at the post, you will find there is a new feature, "Give tips", on every post. When you click 'Give', you will have the chance to send a little reward to the owner of the post to show thanks to him/her. You can use Maxthon Vbox or other wallet to pay the tips. How to receive tips? Open Maxthon Vbox and create an identity. Goto 'Identity' tab and 'Copy address' 3. Go to your profile page on the forum and paste the address to "Payment Address" Q: What unit is the tip? A: The unit is VPoint which equals to 100 satoshi. 1 satoshi=0.00000001 BSV. The default value is 2, so it doesn't cost much, but a good way to show the thanks. Feel free to increase the amount ? The feature is pretty new, feel free to submit any problems you found. Cheers ~~ Jeff

  38. Hi cristiankirk, kindly switch to retro mode in the MX5 browser to proceed with logging in. Click on "Customize UI" icon on the top right corner, select "Toolbar" and checked "Switch Core Button". Afterwhich, make sure your address bar reflects that you are in Retro Mode and you are good to go.

  39. Hello! Version 6.1.2.2100 (64-bit) 0723 (installed) 1. still got bug in download manager where not able to delete all entries... however, is still the same caching issue as if exit & reload Mx6, list is empty. 2. new download manager issue where the download list pops up when not downloading or clicking the icon... when I just came to forum, it displayed! 3. still getting quick launch refreshing everything when Mx6 loads 4. quick launch really needs updating to either get website logos (favicon?) or be user selectable... e.g. Amazon + eBay only have logo for ".com", not any other country (e.g. ".co.uk"). An earlier Mx5 had user selectable from a choice per website, which I assume were created by Maxthon? 5. installing, while previous Mx6 running, still leaves 2 running copies of older version... no popup prompts, no automatic restart, nothing... going to: 'menu, help, about' does show 'restart' button, but that has to be manually browsed to 6. auto-update has never worked, so exactly what is the tick box for & why bother to have option for beta upgrades if it's never been implemented!? Since a user can manually check for updates, so could Mx6 & since you're now basing on Chromium, a notoriously unsafe platform, keeping Mx6 up-to-date is critical! People who post in the forum will check for themselves, but users almost never both to check for or install updates for anything themselves - something we see by the large number of customers running programs that are years out-of-date & often now even a discontinued version. They only seem to do anything, which generally means bring to us to fix, when their software is so old it's no longer compatible with, for example their online banking, email, shopping, etc 7. 'ad-block plus' should, like it was in Mx5 (until, it appears, you accepted a bribe from Opera to remove it!) be built-in, configured & turn-on by default... Mx5 used to lead the way with security & in over 20 years of personal usage & after installing Maxthon on thousands of customer's computers, never once did we see a single copy infected (unlike Chrome, Edge, Firefox, IE + Safari where we see these infected on over 90% of computers)

  41. Hey I know what Maxthon 6 really needs...they need a custumize user agent string option and a brand new set of thing that says "which setting of Maxthon 6 do you prefer,Maxthon 6 settings or Maxthon 5 settings".With these types of settings,we'll be able to change the user agent.Also,the Maxthon 6 setting,needs a little tiny bit of fixing.As for the Maxthon 5 setting at Maxthon 6,it needs the classic Maxthon 5 features now including your themes uploaded from your computer as well.Resource Sniff needs to have a red dot and then it disappears just like Maxthon 5 did.The setting also needs a side bar just to make it feel more like Maxthon 5 even without any updates at all.My final thing....please please please please make Maxthon 5.3.2200 as well as the new Maxthon 6 beta with the two setting options so that way users can choose whenever they wanted to have either the Maxthon 6 setting option or the Maxthon 5 setting option.

  43. Hi Rambo, the mute tab function will be added in the future version. Request for status bar has already been recorded for the development team's consideration. Hi Dong Dong, all these requests has been recorded for the development team's consideration to add it in for future versions. Does this problem occurs when you restart the browser?

  45. Hi brian67, thank you for your feedback. We are unable to give you a definite timeframe when all these features will be added as our development team are working on optimizing quite a few features and also working on the bugs found. But please be assured that we have took note of this and have already let our team know and this will definitely be optimized in the future versions.

  46. When will the developers finally make the (classic, left) Favorites sidebar (bookmarks) in Maxthon 6?
    2 points
  47. Another bug: when saving all tabs as bookmarks and opening the whole folder at once (with open all) they open in reverse order, which is a nuisance, as I use this to remember all the tabs through a restart (for example for update) and then I have to rearrange them every time.

  48. +1 to that, I would actually let only the Maxnote, since it is bookmarks+notes in one place. And the manager is actually more powerful and beautiful. See more here: +1

  49. "I created maxthon to please myself in the first place"... now you made me sad. With a single superficial sentence you wrote off all the years I've promoted maxthon left and right to a simple "I don't care about the users, all I care about is myself". You had chance here to say something that would bring the community together, instead you did this. You know, I've defended Maxthon when it didn't work properly in MX3, I've defended Maxthon when it cheated in html5 test and I've spent countless hours arguing with Niels Leenheer about whether it's fair to simply remove maxthon from all the test results, I've defended Maxthon all the way until now when it came to every tough decision, every misstep when there were Nitro tryouts and unfunctional mobile browser versions, I did it all because of loyality and belief that Maxthon was different because you guys cared. But I guess I was wrong. And to mention the embracing of new technology and new ideas. Maxthon didn't innovate or bring new technology in years unfortunately. It became stale and outdated, so if embracing innovation is your goal, you have unfortunately failed. I wish you good luck with pleasing yourself, because you have lost me.
